Oak Creek Canyon 1949 Chevy Ad (movie)

Post by azbackpackr » Jun 03 2015 5:57 am

This is precious. Hmmm, they left out a few geographical names (calling it all Oak Creek Canyon) but anyway, it's pretty neat to watch:

I think my father saw this add but he purchased a straight 8 four door Buick when he took us from Minnesota to Arizona and California during the winter break of 1948 and 1949. We spent quite a bit of time in Arizona and even visited an old supposed to be prospector in Apache Junction. Somewhere we still have the picture of him with his mule and my brother and I alongside of them. He probably made more $$$$$.$$ charging for having his picture taken then he ever did prospecting for gold. :sl:

A Chevy ad convinced ME to buy Honda, and then my Subaru. Stupid Chevy.
Nothing more enjoyable than a good hike out of town.

Trip included four adults a teenager and an 8 year old. :scared:
The Chevy was considered to small unless of course he purchased two. ;)
