Boy did I love ads like this when I was a kid. I would find them in old magazines even then and would interrogate my mother about the cost and safety of building helicopter or planes. She would patiently attempt to reduce my interest in such things and instill in me a stomach churning fear of all things that left the ground. This particular ad is from 1973 and is for the Scorpion Too. As you can, it is a pretty sweet looking vehicle and with a flying range of 125 miles it would have been the perfect mode of transportation for getting down to the Jersey shore on high traffic summer weekends.
