Ad of the week: Fiat 1100

This is a really odd Fiat ad for the 1100. The text covers some of its features, but the picture and the reference to the tolls is bizarre. Obviously they are staying it is so fuel efficient that tolls won’t be a problem.


Ad of the week: Mercedes 230SL

This is a great Ad for the W113 230SL depicting it as a temptress preying on well heeled men. It would been seen as Sexist today but I think it is rather clever and fits in well with the car.
