Classic Ads: Champions Power the winners

Submitted by on July 9, 2010

I found this ripper ad on The Chicane Blog.

I’m guessing it’s from 1953 as it mentions Mike Hawthorn winning in France, which he did in ’53 aboard a Ferrari 500.

“From Sicily to Indianapolis from Monte Carlo to Mexico….along the rough, tough road of big time racing no two meetings are alike. Cars, drivers, languages rules – everything changes except the fact that: YEAR AFTER YEAR THE WINNERS USE CHAMPION SPARK PLUGS!”

Classic.
