Car ownership more than doubled from approximately one car for every 10 people in 1960 to one car for every 4.8 people by 1970.

This well-illustrated history analyzes how both domestic car manufacturers and importers advertised their products in this growing market, identifying trends and themes. Over 180 advertisement illustrations are included.
