    Car ads are always fun...seing what you wish you had bought "back in the day" !

    The first ad is for a German car with a decided Italian flare. The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. $2,295/$2,495 !

    How about a Triumph Spitfire? This one is only $2,199.

    If you need more car there's the TR-4. Zero to sixty in 10.5 seconds! That will cost you, though...$2,849.

    What suprised me about the last add was that Mercedes was a subsidiary of Studebaker!

      Great ads. My first car was a Karman Ghia, and I always wanted a Triumph. Here is a link to an interesting blog about the Mercedes/Studebaker link. http://blogs.automobilemag.com/mercedesbenzs-connection-with-studebakerpackard-119.html

      Thanks for posting this. I used to have a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, and this really made me miss it! Now I just drive a mainstream <a href="http://petersonrepairsimi.net">honda</a> ... Makes you miss the good old days, right?
