Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.

This poster is dy-na-mite! You gotta love that aerodynamic spark plug (and Chevrolet)!ReplyDelete
I wonder who did the design / illustration?
The complimentary colors make the ad pop!
Its definitely a design descendant of Art Deco "streamlining".
I love it, too. Notice the slightly crazy guy driving the car.ReplyDelete
It leaves me a little sad as ACDelco is now for sale and the offices on Hill Rd will be empty is less than a year.ReplyDelete
Nice piece of advertising.
