That's a nice 57 ad Robert!   

I cleaned it up for you and resized it to fit here.


Wow that looks much better!  :)

When they do get older and fail they are essentially unrestorable due to mass use of plastics that the plasticisers leach out of making them loose color and brittle and computers that will become unsupportable .

Again, cars from the 1940s-70s period failed (were junked or salvaged) at a much faster rate on average than those since as newer cars became and are more durable in years/age, potential accumulated mileage, etc.   Those older cars were not exactly built to last and typically faced corrosion issues, failure of major components, etc.

I like the Mad magazine parody ad.

Fun ad facts:

The regular Cadillac ads for 1961 featured the work of some world-famous jewelers.
Here are a couple of examples ... including a "spoof" ad by the father (?) of Mad magazine's Alfred E Newman)!
