As an advertising professional myself, I'm pissed that I didn't think of this sooner. These are freakin' hilarious. :histeric:

I'd like to see one on the Phaeton since it's turned out to be an expensive failure. As nice a car as it appears to be, it might have succeeded without the VW on the grille.

You might also do something with the Buick Lucerne and its fraternal twin, the VW Passat. When I was at the new car show in Portland this weekend, I asked the guys at the VW display if they had called Buick to ask for their rear end back. I should have done the reverse at the Buick display. Except for the front end, the only way you can tell them apart is by the portholes on the Buick.

One Rolls Royce - quick and dirty.

Ah yes, what if VW told us the truth?

What sort of advertising are you engaged in?

How about something for a 1976 Lincoln Mark IV Bill Blass Edition?

Or

I'm a copywriter for a small business-to-business advertising agency. Been doing it for nearly 18 years now. Yikes.

It's not a car advertisement, but I think this is a great example of truth in advertising:

I bought this sign for a quarter at a neighbor's garage sale back in 1977 and nearly 30 years later, this sign still never fails to crack me up.
