Vintage Racing Ad: Dunlop

What I think I like most about this ad for Dunlop R5 Racing tires is the photograph of a formula car wheel. No tire manufacturer today would have anything less than the very top-end wheels showcasing their products. They would be highly polished, and the photo retouched to absolutely scream “shiny and expensive”.

For this racing tire ad though, it’s just a simple stamped wheel with dull, dirty paint — looks like a Lotus “wobbly web” to me. Fantastic.
