You can say that again! I remember spending as much time on the Contessa Classic ads as the rest of the reader's digest.

Truly a walk down memory lane. Some from my side (picked up from other forum threads):

nice ad for Peugeot 206,bashing the poor amby!. but AFAIK(well from youtube) it is not a Indian ad. it was a french ad which was telecasted 8-9 years ago.! anyways better stick to the topic guys!

PS: the tag line in the jeep ad is awesome! i mean the first pic

Wow this thread brings back old memories. Specially like the Luna ad and Chevrolet jingle. The CBZ ads and Santro ads were trend setters. I think the whole campaign around convincing SRK to endorse Santro was brilliant.

Anybody remember the old Escort ads with Leander Peas in them?

Fiat advert says 0-60 kilometers in under 12 secs. Most cars these days struggle to do 0-0.4 kilometers in under 12 secs. LOL

This reminds of some moped tech specs at an auto show which said 6000bhp@3rpm. Hahah

@GTO, that topless model ad is too good. Don't remember seeing it though.

If I'm not wrong, it was of the humble Kinetic Luna...

My fav too, then came Standard 2000. It had a beautiful print ad too. Anyone has it?

This must have come in '97-'98, when Classic was launched.

Folks, more print ads please? Dig your store rooms and get those old mags out. Nothing matches the charm of a print ad
