Special is a funny word, and it doesn’t always mean something good. One hopes to avoid “special” classes in grade school, for example, and there isn’t a kid alive that looks forward to a bowl of Special K.

One might have assumed that, back some six decades, the realism of television might have served to protect the more fantastic qualities of print advertising. Especially automotive print ads, where dazzlingly illustrated cars with wonderfully exaggerated proportions were set into equally improbable landscapes.


BMW versus Cadiillac

Last year, BMW sold almost 350,000 vehicles in the U.S.–almost twice as many cars and SUVs as Cadillac sold here. The reasons for BMW’s relative success are numerous, yet it can be tempting to oversimplify the situation and conclude that Americans prefer the German maker’s hardware to that of Cadillac. While that may be true, there’s more to the picture–or in Cadillac’s case, less.

Life is full of ironies, many of which go sadly overlooked. One ironic condition I tolerate—well, loathe, actually—is the fact that my new big screen TV requires a certain amount of boot-up time before I can watch anything. I find that excruciating, pre-entertainment pause a strange throwback to the era of mom “warming up” the set before the family would settle in to watch Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom.

Fun fact: In 1980, Consumer Guide road tested seven different diesel-powered vehicles. Turns out those cars were the seven slowest vehicles we tested that year.

Approximately 1.2 million American married couples divorce each year. While financial issues, infidelity, and control of the remote are generally understood to be primary causes for divorce, I think we can safely say there’s another reason for the all the acrimony: couples aren’t car shopping enough.
