Advertising to men used to be a lot easier than it is now. From an article on, “Marketing to men has changed immensely over the years.

In no particular order, the things I like to look at are cars, women, camera equipment, cars, and women. Actually, that list was pretty close to being in order.

If you were a Volkswagen fan in America in the early Seventies, and you were looking for something sporty to drive, you were kind of out of luck. There was the coachbuilt-body Karmann Ghia—a car which was arguably gorgeous, but not really all that sporty. Mechanically identical to the contemporaneous Beetle, the Karmann Ghia was more of a casual touring car—it was a little too slow, and its handling a little too pedestrian, to be engaging. However, Brazilian VW fans of the day had it a little better.
