Slight change in format. Advertisements will be posted now by decade, not individually. I will be posting four ads now per decade. Enjoy!

'78 Aspen super coupe, '63 Galaxie XL;

The Plymouth companion was a Road Runner. 360 4 barrel V8's. Possibly a 4 speed manual option, not sure. 3 speed torque fight with lock up torque converter clutch std.
As much as I didn't care for the pre 1965 Galaxie styling, the XL was a nice car. 390 V8 std, with a 3 speed automatic. Possibly a 429 option, or a 4 speed manual.
Comfortable buckets, and a console floor shift.

second opinion on Buick's;

well, there is one proper car still branded Buick. It's made in Russelsheim Germany by the former GM Opel concern, now owned by French PSA group. The Regal, which is an Opel Insignia, and also the current Holden Commodore.

Those Tiacs were rust buckets. The Fords were great with their irs, rear wheel drive, and 4 wheel disc brakes. Built in Lorraine, Ohio. The final T-birds, and Lincoln LS built in Wixom were on the same platform as the swoopy Jaguar S-type.

My Grandpa had a 53’ Nash Ambassador like the red and black one in the ad, only his was two tone green, dark green roof and light green body. I remember I thought it was ugly then. He traded it for a 55’ Studebaker Hawk, three tone, cream, salmon and charcoal grey body, with a cream roof. It was a hot little 2 dr HT in its day.

the first time I visited Santa Barbara, CAlif. in 1976 I saw the actor, Burl Ives, Big Daddy in “Cat on A Hot Tin Roof”, driving a silver AMC Pacer in Montecito. This is another car that I always thought was ugly as homemade sin.

Thanks Louie for posting these great ads from the past, they always bring back memories.

As always... Thank You Louis for taking the time to post these.

My favorite years for cars was up until 1972. Once they started with the "Park Bench" safety bumpers, I lost most of my interest in American cars. Lincolns always perked me up but the style changes were getting too compact for full size cars.

End of an Era.

You're very welcomed Eddie. Those 5mph bumpers sure ruined a lot of car designs. Some how I have hope you'll be able to print your own car someday. Can you imagine? A brand new 1953 Packard, but with modern running/safety gear, electric powered of course.

I always enjoy these Cruise O Matic posts. I think the last really great year all around for American automobiles was 1967. The body styles were all so graceful, the interiors beautiful, and performance was unhampered for the most part from the federal regulations that began to take control the next year in 68’.

From the 70’s on I became less and less enchanted with what was being offered. Too much plastic, and all the models started to look the same. Now, I can tell little difference from one make to the other, probably because I just lost interest in what was being offered.

When I was 4 and 5 years old I knew the year, make and model of every car I would see on the road, my Dad coached me on this, as he was a car nut thru and thru. I can still identify correctly almost every car I see from the 30’s thru the early 80’s, after that is a blur.

In reply #50 with the gold Cadillac, brought back a flood of memories for me. My uncle was a bookie and ran different "pools" at the shoe factory where he "worked"
Fridays was a collection day for him. I had been riding with him for a couple of years during these times. I went with him to pick up his new Cadillac. The thing was a boat and a half. I was 14 at the time and he would get pretty trashed after the 3rd or 4th stop. Had to have a couple of shots and a beer with doing business. After the 3rd stop I was the designated driver with no license. I used to drive that car all over the place with him guiding me in the front seat. Never got stopped or pulled over. Might have looked like he was teaching me to drive. I had been driving for a couple of years prior to this so he new that I new what I was doing. Man so many fun times cruising around in that car. So back to that picture, it was identical to the Caddy that he got. That was the 1st car that I had seen that had climate control with a round wheel thermostat on the dash with the temperature on it.

Say what you will about

the mailaise era of the 70's and 80's, but that '79 Bonneville was a nice middle class car for 6 to 7 grand. Many were even powered with Olds 350's, as Pontiac was already winding down V8 engine peoduction. The 301, and 255 were their last.
