Matchbox “Superfast” Ad

This style of ads, were used by Matchbox right before they switched to cartoon-style ads. I have been stating at this ad all morning and seriously thinking of collecting some Matchbox cars because of it. I like the symmetry and the color. I like the whole thing.

    Post Hotwheels introduction and Matchbox’s response. Before Hotwheels, Matchbox cars wouldn’t roll much at all… all for the detail and scale of a real car.

    I’d never seen MB tracks, only Hotwheels. Nice advert.
