View Full Version : 'Beam in an ad

Planning a trip to the west coast, we were looking through a book from AAA on travel in California and Nevada (dang, AAA puts out a lot of good stuff) trying to chose places to stay, etc (we like B&B's).

In the book I saw an ad for Hampton Inn hotels; I didn't read the text because, like I said, we prefer B&B's. Included was a picture of a couple driving a red convertible viewed from, say, over the rear deck lid so you can see the dashboard, hood and the road beyond, and luggage stuffed in behind the seats.

Then I looked closer. That windshield frame, and the chrome bits for the (missing) sunvisors, looked familiar. As did the curve of the hood. A look at the -- admittedly dark -- dashboard confirmed it; that's a Sunbeam Alpine or Tiger!

Cool. images/icons/cool.gif Never saw a 'Beam in an ad for another product before.

In our daily newspaper there is an add showing a tiger.It is in black and white.It is an add they use once in awhile.There was a beer commercial done in Toronto but I never did see it. It was a take off of Maxwell Smart entrance to headquarters which was the entrance to the pub.I read about it as it was written about by the owner of the Tiger they used.

Farmers insurance did a web ad with a Tiger/Alpine tail, I should look it up and post it. Pretty sure it survived my hd crash.
