DeSoto Fire Dome - Quickie.

Today's my day off, so instead of writing some jokes, I'll just post a nice big scan of a DeSoto ad from 1952. They brag about the "fire dome" engine. It's probably the same thing as a "hemi". I dunno. I like the loosely rendered people living in a cartoon world with their realistic car. These are no arbitrary art decisions. It keeps the focus on the car. Yellow is an odd color for a car ad. It doesn't show the shine as well as darker colors. Nice chrome.

What's in that cartoon duffel bag that Ken is putting in the back seat? Well, probably dynamite and anvils.

I love that car! Is Ken actually going to launch that duffel bag at Barbie (on the ladder) for her little twig arms to catch?
