Last post was ads from R&T’s August issue. Staying in 1987, this is a little jump in the calendar.
Starting off with a hair-shampoo ad:
Here’s a manufacturer I thought was gone from the US by 1987.
A two-part ad. Turn the page and see this:
Another two part ad. I have to say those seats look really comfy.
I think the car on the left is a “modified” Golf. I mean, look: It’s just a Golf with rectangular headlights. Do you think Hyundai were trying to hint something?
Mercedes-Benz are tapping into their past to promote their present.
Ford going for the quality card in this ad.
This ad makes good use of what we know now as Eighties’ colors.
Well, at least you can’t see its overhangs from this view.
Ford went for quality in the ad above. GM go for safety in theirs.
Anyone ever went for a drive on these “Mazda roads”?
SAAB stretching their wings.
As per usual, we have a different 505 ad on every issue.
Remember how Chrysler used to “hide” the fact they sold Mitsubishi cars under their name, in late-Seventies’ issues? Well, now they flaunt with this ad that has “Japan” written all over it.
Again we have competing ads from the Big Two: Ac-Delco above, Motorcraft below.
This will surely stop any thief from stealing your car. Surely…
Well, this beats all other ads.
Now for classifieds:
So contrary to the Supra above, this corolla does nothing for me at all.
More will follow throughout the week, as usual.
Also, I’ve updated last week’s post Long-Term Affordable Classics with an article from this November issue.
