Turtle Old & New Efficiency Ads

I'm starting this thread to get some help in finding as many efficiency ads as we can. I doesn't have to be funny or sarcastic towards gas guzzlers but those are my favorites. Also I found most to be quite smart. I'll start with the first, please feel free to ad more

Let's start with....Porsche (911/914): Who says an economy car has to be an economy car




A very smart one from Honda for the Civic CRX HF




and another older Civic CVCC Hatchback



Volkswagen Rabbit Diesel
emphasizing it's amazing 40/53 MPG '



The most successful hybrid so far, the Toyota Prius



The Honda 50 225 MPG motorcycle



Even Harley-Davidson did it:

Toyota are from: Vintage Paper Ads - Cars / Trucks:Toyota

Honda are from: http://store.valueweb.com/servlet/vi...110/Categories

First one is from: Welcome on ON3AL.net ! - 2D Graphics

I've never forgotten the "Gasolectric? Electroline?" ad since the first time I saw it in Reader's Digest as a kid.

There's a HORDE of car ads from the 50's to now on the Vintage Paper Ads store.
