The Mini-Brute Shows Its Stripes

Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.

Do you like elephants? Of course you do. Everybody does. How about one with a stripe? The fastest of them all, no doubt. Just like Buick’s Opel. It can be your Opel too, with chrome wheels only costing $63.30 extra. Eighty horsepower is plenty when your car weighs nothing. Not to mention 102.


If you have 2,325 dollars and 26 cents, a sum you would voluntarily hand over to your GM representative, please call Buick right now!
