Picture of the Week: Women and Cars in advertisement

Here's an example showing that in the second half of the 20iest century a combination of women and cars was key in automobile advertisement. The ad shown here is for GM cars, displaying a Pontiac, an Oldsmobile, an Opel Kapitän and an Opel Rekord. The ad was published in 1957 in Switzerland, when GM cars were actually assembled locally in Bienne and proudly showed "assembled in Switzerland" on a sticker. They woman in the picture at least seems to enjoy driving a GM car.
