Last Call: Chalk Talk Edition

Click for larger image view

Ad men are notorious for selling the sizzle and not the steak. Every once in a while, though, the actual technical merits of the product are showcased. The tech-talk in this Suzuki magazine spread from 1976 isn’t really as in-depth as it appears to be at first blush, but the cool graphics sure make it feel as though you’re getting a heady hit of gearhead-worthy data. The chalkboard motif would go on to be used in a whole series of ads in 1976 and ’77.
Last Call indicates the end of the Hooniverse broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.
