Another classic ad that came out for the MG MGB in what must be the early 1970’s. “MG. Room enough for two. Fun enough to breed a generation of sports car enthusiasts.” What does this really mean? When I first read the headline I was thinking that the MG MGB would be an awesome car to run your date to the drive-in movie. Plenty of space for a good time if the movie was boring.
After reading the ad I don’t think this is what British Leyland had in mind. The ad type is actually very boring. “That was the MG-TC when it first turned America on to sports cars 26 years ago. And that’s the MGB today.” After that the ad just tells you what a great car an MG MBB is. How boring is that?
I guess the world wasn’t quite ready for the ” Your mother wouldn’t like it” campaigns that came a little later.
