This might be seen as too risky these days- Motor magazine 1974 I think.

Should we be worried about the build up of wheel ants ?......or is this a case of ''only in America'' ?

The girl munching a banana on the Firenza bonnet is more serious....very British, and very acceptable, even today. :D

At first glance Big Bertha looked a hell of a lot like a quad headlight Holden HZ GTS. It sure reminds me of Peter Geoghegan's Monaro sportsedan that also had a Repco Holden engine.

The Motor Show in the 70s and early 80s had women draped on the cars and many were partially clothed. It was considered normal at the time.
