I have a can! It comes in a goldfish yellow metal can. It's a great polish (not a wax)... It goes on real easy and comes off easy. Great shine, but not all that long lasting. But, its so easy to use (with a damp applier)... just a light haze (not in the sun).. I like it personally.

Great product runs about $25 at Auto Zone I used it in the past really is the best i have seen or used.Throw a towel across your hood and watch it fly off to the ground.

I am trying out the Turtle Wax Carnauba Cleaner Wax has a lot of great write up's and runs $6.99 at Auto Zone

LG has been around a long time... as far as I know its changed ownership about 5 or 6 times in the past few years. Met the current owner at AAPEX last year, good guy... he said he basically bought the formula and the packaging rights from the previous owner who had let the brand kind of die off.

I like that they still use the old tin can packaging, reminds me of some of my 1940's and 1950's vintage simoniz and dupont can's I've collected.

It's a polish. It used to come as Liquid Glass and Liquid Glass Advanced. The advanced buffs out real easy. Use the regular and you better have a good orbital polisher. Either one shines like wet. That was a few years ago. Adams all the way now, baby

Thats awesome! I have a collection of their old tins... some of them still have product inside, but I'm not brave enough to open them up.

Also have some framed original DuPont No. 7 magazine ads up in my office... my oldest one is 1942. Even have a few Johnsons wax ads from 1932. They make me laugh with some of the things they talk about. The more things change the more they stay the same

Back in the 60s it was in a tin can with a picture of a "mystery car" on it. I think it was called Liquid 1st Class back then. They changed the cans picture and name somewher in the mid 70s and they price quadrupled.
It was the Corvette owners favorite in the early 80s. Sort of an 80s Adams.
I always liked real wax better though.

Used it on my Vetts years ago, great product, but onl lasted about three weeks. Looked great on black Vette, but needed to "spit shine" to look really good..

Does any of the Adam's waxes/polishes have the same consistency as liquid glass, I like it thin, watery I guess you could say...

Detailer's Poli-Coat Paint Sealant has been compared to a modern day Liquid Glass.
