Park A Dream On Your Bedroom Wall

I found this advertisement from General Motors in Seventeen Magazine back in 1984.

The ad reads:

The Future of Transportation is Here

Park A Dream On Your Bedroom Wall

This concept car was designed and built for the future by General Motors. You can’t see it on the highways yet (the actual concept car can be seen at EPCOT CENTER), but you can see it every single day in your own room. For this full color poster…

Why they advertised so regularly in a teen girls fashion magazine, I’ll never know. The irony of the whole thing is their catch phrase if it were only finished correctly:

Park a dream on your bedroom wall, because you’ll never be able to park it in your future.

I’m still waiting for this car, GM. Maybe THAT’S why you guys need a government bailout…

  1. LOL! Isn’t that the truth? These damned car companies should quite blowing all their money on ridiculous concept cars that never come to fruition and then maybe they wouldn’t have their hands out for government money. Sell a concept car or two to pay your bills, GM!
