1960s auto ad sexism: American and Import versions.

(click ads to read copy)
Travel back to a buygone era when women did not drive, and hard-drinking ad Mad Men wrote hard fucking sell car copy.
(L)—"He's taught me how to shift the 4-speed synchromesh. He lets me pick out the stereo tapes. And clean the vinyl buckets. It's not all bad. He even mentioned marriage once." Ralph's a keeper, missy.
(R) "Women are soft and gentle, but they hit things...She can jab the hood. Graze the door. Or bump the bumper. It may make you furious but it won't make you poor." Give me the keys and go vacuum, Mrs. McCrash.
