This is the beyond-awesome artistic advert from the back of the February 1957 issue of National Geographic. The graphic – depicting Acapulco Mexico in all its space-age vacation glory – was done by Robert Fawcett, a highly-noted illustrator of the period. He died ten years after penning this Coca-Cola ad.
Five months later, Acapulco suffered a major 7.9 Earthquake.

Brown and Yellow: possibly the two least likely colors to be successful at selling cars. Must not have made a difference in the 1970s though, because Toyota sold tons of these cars. It was only recently, in fact, that I realized how long it had been since I’d seen one on the road.
This ad was from the back page of the July 1976 National Geographic.
