Watches are not the only ones to have some good old marketing teams... wink



I love old car brochures....

They are part of social history and take you back to the era. 

Absolutely. [nt]

I have a few old brochures as well, some are lost unfortunately.
This example of the P1800 is amazing, shame we can't yet send the correct odor along with the scans smile


Please post the non lost ones! ;) [nt]

I love seeing the fashion from when these classics were new--the clothes, the hairstyles, the makeup, men wearing hats...

It reminds me what a different world it was back when these cars were 'just' cars.

All an era. Cars were object of Art, pleasure, Travels... Soul. [nt]

You know we who love watches are not the only ones with obsessions! Here's a guy whose obsession is P1800 Literature!

The brochures (in many languages) are all scanned in as PDF files!

Nico, you can thank me later at 4 am when you finish scanning the list ...


The funny thing is that I know most of these documents! I discovered some of them, though. Thanks to you and to this gentleman! [nt]
