On the topic of period car mods, I'm trying to find this early 70's advert for this black paint finish thing. The slogan was "Get the hairy look" & had a silver Renault 16 with a black bonnet and boot. I remember seeing the advert in some Hot Car magazines from around 1971, does anyone know what it's called?

Here we have a couple of examples of one of Toyota Australia’s worst advertising campaigns.

The was also a TV ad that I remember being very bad.

Barry Humphries must have been really short of work at the time.

Thanks to FaceBook Marketplace tonight I've found myself with about a hundred car magazines for free. I take a look in the first one and these two are here:

That sounds interesting I hope you can share with us some more scans.  I’ve been collecting up some car related literature & uploading it to here & Flickr.

Lucky! What era are these magazines from? I hope to see some interesting scans.

....the sort of shite we might have had back in the late 1980s - some under £150 shonkers:....

I see a K70 LS listed. Quad headlamps and 1807cc 100hp engine, so quite quick off the mark. Still heavy unassisted steering, and no space to rest the left foot, though.

In the late '80s there weren't any parts left in Britain to help restore the bodywork, unless you knew people in Germany....

Some interesting tin on offer there - it’s interesting that the regs are sometimes quoted as well as the owners home number.

I've spent a little while entering the plates into the DVLA site. Most of the high end cars (Lanchesters ect) and MGBs are still on the road
