HK Car Sales promos in the late 60's

My how times have changed.
You'd be sacked today if you were a car advertising company guru seriously suggesting that combining guns/hunting into your new car sales add campaign would be great idea.
Obviously hunting & fishing went hand in hand as normal mainstream activities back in the day. (I know it was for me)

These days you'd be seen as having a screw loose.
I admit I must have a screw loose which will come as no surprise to some on this forum.

I can remember riding my motorbike around in traffic in the early '80's with a rifle strapped to the front bars going out for a shot, you'd have the State Protection Group and every copper on your case now

Premiers had whitewalls as standard from the factory in those models, yet whitewalls were never as popular as they are now. Did every second old Holden in existence have whitewalls on it back in their heyday? Don't think so. What I really find odd is fairly standard restored utes and panel vans with them on. Would you also like to hear me whinge about lowering near stock standard classics too? Pet hate.

if its done tastefully it looks cool. I drop mine 1 1/2 and it looks good. If you go more than that, then yea it looks out of place to me but thats just my 2 cents worth.
Some old cars look good dropped down 2- 2 1/2 and some Differently dont
