Buick for 1956: A History in Advertising

The best-selling Buick of all time was refined and modestly improved for 1956. Once again, the great illustrations carried the message of zoom and room. Over 85 ads, including Canadian and Sunday newspaper magazine ones.

Below are typical screen shots from the CD. To the left on each screen you can see the browsing menu functions: Slide Show and Browse (typically by year, maker and model). A ZOOM feature allows close inspection of each ad. Saved from the disc and printed using any graphics program and a color printer, the images are amazingly true to the originals in detail and color.

In addition you can read a short analytical essay or timeline that explains further the history of the products included. Essays are written by Bill McBride, former advertising copywriter and creative director, and former advertising columnist for Old Cars Weekly and Car Exchange magazine. A printable chronological checklist of the ads, including magazine where published and date, is also included.

You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.
