They don’t make them like they used to.  MarkM takes us down memory lane with some fantastic newspaper clippings of some of the more eyebrow raising, nostalgia tingling ads for new cars from decades gone by.

Without a doubt, there was some very strong coffee taken in the marketing departments of some of these examples.

Omg I'm glad I'm not alone on this stuff. I absolutely love it! I had intended to get a pile of random ones and create a wall of them in the garage

These are class, back when adverts had a bit of individuality and creativity and some even had a bit of humour! Great run back down memory lane there (y) Would love a Fiesta Supersport!
