There's something really fascinating about old car ads. You won't find any pretentious nonsense or social media bullshit–just clear simple messages, like this old one for the BMW 2002.


Get it? Goes like schnell, because schnell is the German word for fast but it sounds like hell, and "goes like hell" is an english saying used to describe something fast, and maybe I should stop now.

That clever one is a particular favorite of mine, but I'm interested in what the Jalopnik readers think are the best vintage car ads. Do some serious searching and share the best ones you can find. TV Commercials are also fair game too, like this fantastic one for the Porsche 944 Turbo.
