Continuing our drive down memory lane, here’s another collection of ads scanned from what is the last R&T issue for 1978. Yes, I know there were many issues in-between this one and the last, but sadly, I haven’t got them. Enjoy this one, though.
Well, lets start:
Remember how reliable these engines were? Oh well, at least they tried to do something about the soaring gas prices.
Who actually sold this poster? It’s not Chevrolet. Hmm, looks very shady to me.
I love this Ad. It fuses two of my interests (Motor Racing and Photography) seamlessly. Plus, you’ve got Bob Sharp and the Datsun, what else could you want?
Volvo working the loyalty angle.
In the previous post, some of you compared the old Civic to the current 2015 model. Now you can do the same with the Accord.
Lancia Beta Berlina, anyone?
There was a time when Peugeot made bulletproof cars.
I think this is probably one of the first Ads of the Mustang MK3.
I can’t explain it, but somehow I prefer the looks of this Capri to its Mustang sister.
Chrysler seems to have decided to address the Malaise era by simply replacing all their cars with Mitsubishi’s (note the Challenger above).
Actually, I take it back- “Hey, that’s my Dodge”.
Of course, the GTO springs into view, with a listing that’s long as your arm. But please note the Trans Am and especially the Superbird… $7500!
Some accessories for your pleasure.
Ok, that’s it. See ya next issue.
