  3. Actually catering to the female buyer?? Considering the time in history that is amazing. Were we even able to vote then??

  4. GRANNYMAR: We'd have a great time!

    TABOR: Just fewer people to my mind. We see what we want to see.

    AKPATTI: There must have been a sharp cookie in marketing.Women have had the right to vote since 1869 in Wyoming. This ad is dated 1923. The Nineenth Amendment wasn't ratified til 8-18-1920, when it became the law of the land. Mississippi didn't ratify it til 1984...

  11. An imaginative and seductive ad. And you are right -- targeting women was a bold move for the time.

  12. Love that ad..I think things have changed a bit in the car sale business...seems the used cars with 50,000 miles are going for just about as much as the new ones!
