Ford really loved those MPG’s in 1975!

Ford MPG's

I spotted this print advert whilst browsing around the Click Americana website. It didn’t stand out because of the cars but rather the unusual method used to advertise them – the potential miles per gallon in comparison to other leading vehicles of the time.

If you knew that you were saving hundreds of dollars on the sticker price AND getting better mileage, would you have bought the Ford Pinto instead of a VW Beetle, Toyota Corona, Audi Fox or the Mazda 808? Perhaps a better look at the Pinto is required?

I think I’d prefer the Mustang!

C-Max & La Linea

A while ago, Drahken posted about the La Linea series of cartoons. I barely remembered these cartoons. Maybe I’d seen them at school or on PBS. It was just a vague memory, but it was rekindled by that post. Turns out somebody else remembers La Linea as well. Ford has incorporated the cartoons into the new commercials for their C-Max hybrid. Check it out.
