  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Advertising the 1990s: It Was Longer Ago than You Think

Recommended Posts

1990s AdsAh, the 1990s. Not yet seen in the retro-ironic light that has washed over the ’80s, and yet they’re now officially a generation ago and things really were different then. Advertising is nothing if not a cultural barometer, and this roundup of ads from the ’90s provides a good indication of which way the winds blew.

-

To realize how long ago it was, note the ads from relatively newfangled Japanese luxury-brand startups Infiniti and Lexus. We also see a last gasp from Alfa Romeo (for a while anyway) and the introduction of a new sports-car icon, the Mazda Miata. Some well-known campaigns from the era include Porsche’s, which combined high-art photography with minimal copy, Nissan’s appeals to dog lovers, and a cartoon camel selling smokes. Note: You can click or tap the ads to enlarge.
