My family owned a small GM dealership way back when and I thought that I was familiar with most of the rarer options available but this is one that I confess that I have never heard of. It was a dealer installed thing and apparently it used a switch installed on the floor board that activated two canisters, one in each wheel well. Some sort of compound was sprayed on to the tires that would allow them to grip on slick surfaces. Apparently it was only around for the 1969 model year and less that 3,000 units were sold. It was available under UPC code V75 and was called 'Liquid Tire Chain':

Can't tell if that's a Camaro or a Firebird,...

Just got a message from someone who actually used this set-up, although Not for what it was intended. Apparently he would load the canisters with bleach for burns outs on public streets,......:LOL:
