Just wondering if anyone has seen this little jigger - The Holden Torana GTR-X that was shown in 1970. It never went into production and only came with a 186 cube straight six but it certainly had all the lines for 43 years ago. Original Pixs on the Parts Box site.

Back then I owned a XU1 and the Holden Dealer gave me a brochure on that car, thought I might buy one. I believe one has survived and is in a car museum ? Thanks for showing.

Right, not a hi-res scan, so the type gets pretty fuzzy.

STILL, the most AWESOME Lincoln ad I've seen in quite a while! THANKS, RedlandMaggie, for posting it! (PLUS, the same-era senior Hudson, as well!)
You are most welcome - this picture stuff is realy fun.

Here's a couple more from the City of Vancouver Archives, ironically, they are actually advertising a fundraising dance, in the community that I live in now, although it has had a name change since then. Town of Haney, became City of Maple Ridge.
