This ad comes from a magazine from 1980 and shows the dazzling array of car phones that you can choose from, the more standard home phone like Satellite 80 or the sleek and I am guessing less expensive Alpha 40. If money wasn’t an object in 1980 and I had to pick one just on cool factor alone, I would have picked the Alpha 40. I just feel it looks more futuristic and would look better betwixt the plaid bucket seats of my AMC Gremlin.
