Meguiar's Catsup and Chili Sauce
« on: July 13, 2017, 11:56:00 AM »
Two Questions. Does anyone know anything about the Meguiar's Catsup and Chili Sauce Factory in Fowlerton Indiana. It also carried the Name Midwest Catsup, I think. Also what Railroad went through Fowlerton Indiana?

Sort of unrelated. But I have always wondered what would happen if a locomotive hit one of those semi trailers you see around Indiana that tomatoes.
If in doubt, Notch it out!

Meguiar's Catsup and Chili Sauce????

I thought Meguiar's made automotive polish and wax!  Sure hope they never mix up the bottles when processing the two different products.

The same way that Borden used to make a variety of jams and glues!

I once saw the aftermath of an amtrak engine and a hershey's chocolate syrup truck.  The bees! SOOOO many bees!  They sent the unit back to Beech Grove to clean, strip and repaint it...the syrup just wouldn't come off.

Sometime on this board a story was posted when an AMTRAK locomotive center punched a semi hopper trailer of dry powdered cement. Gray is a nice color but ...... The only thing on the locomotive not gray, and for several hundred yards around not gray was the area on the engineers windscreen cleared by the wiper.

My grandfather, Robert J. Meguiar, owned Meguiar's Catsup factory in Fowlerton. My dad grew up there and in nearby Fairmount. Apparently, we are distant cousins from the car wax side of the Meguiars, through my grandfather's relatives.

My grandfather passed away in 1955, and my grandmother sold the factory, the recipe and all the land, and moved to Florida with her son (my dad).

The factory later became MidWest Food Packers, Inc.
