'58 Corvette Magazine Ad
CORVETTE FOR '58----BRAND NEW AND BRED FOR ACTION !
I felt real good about this ad because the art director picked up the art of the chassis from one of my direct mail pieces and then had a car shot to match it. I began to feel like I could make ads too if given a chance. The art director was probably Sy Lachuisa and the copy by Barney Clark. This ad ran in Popular Mechanics and Popular Science in March of 1958. I guess somebody thought only people interested in mechanics and science would respond to an ad like this but this is just the kind of flavor I had been getting into the direct mail for Corvette.
