Follies of the Mad Men #132



What does this ad teach us?

1) Your friendly neighborhood car mechanic is a whining, moronic crook.

2) Your new car purchase can undermine the local economy.

3) If and when you do need your new car serviced, by any surviving garage, it will undoubtedly be sabotaged.

Station Wagon or Limousine?

There was an article in my local paper recently about a man who was loaning his unique car to film-makers. The article didn't include any pictures, however, so I went online to see what made the car so original. I admit that I am not much into cars, even though I love the television show Top Gear. But I know weirdness when I see it, and this car definitely qualifies. This is the 1969 Checker Aerobus (pictured). As you can see, it has four doors on each side. Back then they called it a station wagon, but it is now classified as a limousine. The Checker Motors Corporation is more famously known for manufacturing the iconic taxi cab. The Wikipedia article can tell you more (and it's worth reading).

Follies of the Mad Men #117



Can you imagine Angelina Jolie touting a Kia? No? That's because there is no more glamour in Hollywood or Detroit.

You know, even in 1969, despite the prevalence of hype connected with "flower power," I don't think anyone was going to believe that automobiles were pro-nature. And aren't flowers kind of a sissy image for a muscle car anyhow?
