See the USA in your Chevrolet!

Chevrolet was the sponsor for The Dinah Shore Show. Here she is presenting it! I love the kiss at the end. It just makes me so happy to see this commercial. Doesn't it make you want a Chevy?

The car looks rather humously dumpy after that big build up at the beginning. :lol: (Not that I don't like it.) Yes, the song does make you want to drive a Chevy. They were still using this song in commercials up in the 60's, I believe.

:lol: your comment made me giggle. I definitely pointed to it and showed my husband. What an odd looking car compared to the ones we are used to now!

Yes, it has a quaint attractiveness, but the advertising copy she's reading seems to picture it as something sleek, steamlined, and elegant, and it sure sure looks anything but to our eyes. Isn't it odd how views of styles change?

It is! That's why I love learning about old pop culture. It's almost like learning about a different species! ☺️☺️

Yes, it's those little details of life, how people saw things, how they talked, their habits, the products they used... that's what makes old movies,magazines, etc., so fascinating.

I've often wondered why some of us have such a strong fascination for this kind of thing, and other people could care less (the poor souls!)
