That’s right, more Mazda ads! A continuation from my first Mazda ad post.
I held back about half of my ad collection from my first post of 13. It just seemed like 26 ads would be too many to post at once. And I kinda wanted to get a second blog post out of it anyway. Then, an awesome guy named Claudio sent me another half dozen after I put that first post up. So, I have 20 to share today.
And there are some good ones.
And that’s it! That’s my collection of Mazda ads. Got a favorite? I’ve gotta say, that Mazda 1500 ad is doing it for me. The field, the 70s colors, the ad copy. Love it.
Not that the sunburned guy isn’t totally sweet.
I’m a bit confused. You do know that the Mazda light bulbs have nothing to do with Toyo Kogyo – Mazda cars, right? Completely different company.
I am ashamed to admit that I never knew that. I assumed Mazda made bulbs before they made cars. I always seem to run across them at swap meets and fleamarkets.
Wikipedia reveals it’s not even a company. It’s a TYPE of light bulb produced by GE. I…. feel dumb.
I think I’ll leave those ads up though. They’re beautifully designed.
Sorry! I didn’t intend to make you feel dumb. I enjoy your site too much to do that!
No worries! I’m a big enough guy to admit when I don’t know something. 🙂
Hey Adam, do you mind rescanning the 97M poster and sending it over to me, if thats not too big of a hassle? Thanks a lot man! 🙂
Sorry, but it’s not my scan. That one came from the dark corners of the intartoobz. =(
It’s a beauty, isn’t it? Very nostalgic. I wish I had a better copy of it.
Yes indeed! Ive been looking for them for a while, read somewhere that there were 2 posters/adverts for the 97M, Im guessing this is the 2nd one 🙂
Anyways, best and warmest wishes to you and your family this holiday season! (Sharka is included in that wish – family! 🙂
yes, the mazda 1500 is one sexy car. i love it!! what a great collection!!
Thanks! It was fun to collect these.
The RX-3 and 808 ad is from Thailand.
Thanks! I’ll update the text accordingly.
I was really hoping someone would help me out with the location. Thanks again.
Yep, it’s from Thailand. The headline says “Mazda Ma Laew”, or “Mazda Is Here!”
