Here’s a solid dose of nostalgia with a 20-minute compilation of car and truck commercials from the 1950s and ’60s. The ads include the wonders of Tri-5 Chevys, a “red-carpet” ride in an AMC Ambassador, big-block Edsels, beating the urethane nose of a Pontiac GTO with a crow bar, hauling a Chevy truck up the […]
While the MG TC went down in history as “the sports car America loved first,” the automaker also built a range of small 4-seaters that brought forward pre-war British styling and agility. The MG YA was a traditional sedan (or saloon, as the Brits call them) while the MG YT re-created the TC magic on […]
