I’ve always found the advertising tactics used in after market performance magazines a little puzzling because the artwork, and or photos, often have little to no correlation with the product being sold.
For example how is a woman, standing in the middle of a desert, holding a sub, with lighting striking behind her, at all representative of a quality audio product? I guess the easiest answer to this question is sex has and always will sell, and deserts are easier to manipulate with Photoshop than street scenes.
Keeping with my steadily growing obsession of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s automotive scenes I’ve pulled together an eclectic collection of vintage advertisements from 70s street machines, shakotan jam and various forums.
Not all of them make sense but they are interesting if nothing else.
