Volvo had the best advertising in the 80's

That is a pretty good ad. Volvo had good print ads too. When I was in high school and bored I used to go to the library and cut out car ads in magazines from the '80s and early '90s. Land Rover had great print ads too. I never really found many great Mercedes ads...I don't think they advertised as much as the other brands, or maybe I just didn't find them as clever and well put together.

Don't particular like Volvos but their advertising is strong, I liked this ad from the 90's a lot and think it still works now...
