Thank Austria For Zippo Lighters
One day the George Blaisdell (also known as the man who founded Zippo) was watching a friend struggle with an Austrian made lighter with a chimney. Blaisdell revised the concept and in 1933 introduced the Zippo Lighter. He built all the early lighters himself and with the help of his 2 daughters.

Want A Ride In The Zippo Car?
Once the war was over, Blaisdell decided that he wanted to promote his creation with the help of a Zippo shaped car. The result? A 1947 Chrysler Saratoga was selected for the purpose with massive replica Zippo on the side panels that overlooked the roof with detachable neon films and lids that cracked shut for travel. These days, the Zippo Car travels by truck trailer.
