The automotive library here at Autoblog is vast, spanning from the 50's to today. Sometimes it's hard not to sit and thumb through old magazines just for the advertisements. Advancements that we take for granted now were big headlines and selling points back then. We'd like to challenge you with some slogans – you'll get the year the ad was printed and a little clue.
