The Stanley Steam Car has enjoyed a long life following its corporate demise. As the old car hobby began to take off after World War II, advertisers began to look back nostalgically at early automobiles. The Stanley Steamer was one of the popular cars that began appearing on calendars, thermometers, and advertising of all sorts. As Kit Foster noted in his authoritative book, The Stanley Steamer: America's Legendary Steam Car, these took a wide variety of forms.
