They are still doing it. Back in 1964, the Democrats came up with what they consider the “greatest political ad campaign of all time.” I’m looking at the ads and think it was the sickest pack of lies in American history. It’s amazing how what should be the easiest elections bring out the worst from the Democrats. Considering the amount of good will that the Democrats had after the assassination of Kennedy , it’s amazing that they felt compelled to stoop to this level. It’s a testament to how controlled the media was that the campaign actually worked.
A great ad from Singapore Airlines.
All of that is from the same cardstock that is use to make index folders.
I don’t think that I’ve ever gotten one of these from a time share seller. Must be a new gimmick.
I might not pull the tab, but I would certainly take it apart. Or send it to Dave Jones for 2 second teardown on mailbag.
Lot’s of damage. To everything but the truck.
Of course the point was to demo the truck’s features.

The making of video.
Smash something wonderful, like a Porsche 911. Look, if anybody feels a burning desire to smash their Porsche 911, I can probably find a nice home for it.
Of course the car guys had something to say about that.
At least they only burned the dress.
The Budd Company’s brochure for the Rail Diesel Car(RDC). The RDC was a last gasp attempt to save little used branchline passenger traffic and provide service where a complete train was no longer required. The cars were also used by the B&M and New Haven heavily in Boston commuter service. The cars were amazingly durable and reliable, some running in constant service for over 40 years. Indeed, there are some still around.
The RDC was built in five different types. The RDC 1 was all coach. The RDC 2 was coach with a baggage express section. The RDC 3 was Railway Post Office, Baggage and coach. The RDC 4 was RPO and Express with no coach section. The RDC 9 was all coach with no cabs for use in the Boston commuter service by the B&M.
I found this brochure in among my old railroad magazines. I had forgotten I had it and wanted to share before it went into my files.
Clear Iron, a film Budd had made about RDC’s
It’s always fun seeing actors doing weird stuff in character, or out.
Not happy with Dr. Who selling insurance in New Zealand?
