Unexpected find:

I found the above ad when I did a search for "makeout vans"... (hey I'm running out of ideas here). I'm not sure as to the date of the ad, but I'm guessing somewhere between '68 and '72. I love the artwork in this one, it's like some glorious acid trip (um, I've never done acid, btw. For the record)....

That is a neat ad. I like the comic comments.

this reminds me of one of those color by number jobs I had when I was a kid.

The whole famdamily got into it and we colored it in together.

Good times

So Ann, 'fess up. did you ever own a makeout van??? You can be honest, I won't think any less of you.. ;^)

Candy, it reminds me more of those posters that came with markers that you color in yourself. Although to be honest I was never that imaginitive with my use of colors, but then again I was never on acid at the time either..

No make out Van but I had a 1955 Ford that did just as good.

That ad is from '78.

Well I was rather off wasn't I. It just seemed older than that.

I don't know how long this was around but I have seen it in 1976 magazines.
Also, the 1976 Yankee yearbook (or game program) has this ad as well.

I found this by googling "old street van ads"
