Fiat 600 (1956)
I’d never noticed how early models had their front indicators at the top of the headlights, I quite like that touch. In the last picture, in Multipla form, which actually managed to have 6 seats.
I still see some people running around traffic in 500/600 models today, almost as many as original Minis, and I find it delicious. In my mind they’re almost as practical as a bicycle anyway, so why not?
Lincoln Continental advertisement (1961)
One of the most interesting saloon designs America has ever given to the world, in my opinion. Details like the split doors, the over the top windshield and the bumper design are worthy of note.
Also, Lincoln advertisements: always charming.
Talbot artwork / advertisement (somewhere during the 20’s).
See what I meant about Talbot elegance?
Chevrolet Monte Carlo advertisement (1971)
I personally didn’t know about this generation of the Monte Carlo. This is rather beautiful — I also love the fact that the standard, most basic engine you could get on one of these, was a 5.7L V8.
Fiat 1800 (1959)
Next to not just any plane, but the Fiat G91, which was a 1953 italian jet fighter.
- Fiat 126 (1972)
- Fiat 500 (1958)
Fiat advertisement, done right. For decades Fiat knew exactly how to sell tiny, underpowered and cramped cute cars both to men and women of all ages.
I’m thinking about a European Don Draper of Fiat’s marketing department.
Jaguar E Type SII advertisement (1970)
E-Type advertisements are a personal favorite of mine.
They’re all so beautifully worked, never showing too much or too little, with proper subtle luxurious color schemes which makes you know how special you could be if you owned one.
Volvo PV444 advertisement (1948)
1969 Advertisement for the XKE/E-Type Jaguar.
