  1. There must be something wrong with me. These ancient ads made me want to go car shopping. Seriously. A Camaro! Yeah! Powder blue! No, fire engine red! With soft leather seats, fit for a kitten. I’ll let my husband worry about all the money and mechanical stuff…

  2. What great cars! The fins! The grills! Bench seats! The ginormous interiors! I want a Wayfarer! Or an “all steel” Plymouth Suburban.

    And 25¢/G gas to drive all that steel around.

    I know our mechanic would rather work on one of those old buggies than the new cars. He had to almost take out the engine just to change a hose on our Nissan.

    Another advantage of all those cars: They’ll still run after an EMP!

  3. Heh- got so distracted by the cars themselves almost forgot to laugh at the crazy old ad copy.

    One beauty — the ~1938 Packard — among so many beasts. Sad to say, I remember all of them. There were still unrestored 1938 Packards roaming the land when I was a lad.

  6. Would you believe that I once owned a Morris Oxford like the one shown? Back in the 1960’s. Bought itsecond hand for £100, when I lived in Melbourne.
