My association with NAPA, Balkamp, Martin-Senour, etc. goes back to the late 60s. My father leased the machine shop at the local NAPA store and did all of the machine work for them. The "bread and butter" back then was valve jobs on cast iron heads and turning brake drums. Of course the auto refinishing product that NAPA sold was, and still is, Martin-Senour. Over all of these years, I never really knew how to pronounce the SENOUR part of Martin-Senour. Curiousity got the best of me the other day so I called their 1-800 number. So here it is...some 52 or so years later: According their recorded automated directory, it is pronounced "SEA"-"NOR". Now you know.
