    About two years ago my wife and I had the pleasure of a personal tour of what remains of the Packard proving grounds. It was truly a great and informative experience.

    Is that near Detroit? I'd be interested to hear your description of what remains. And if by any chance you took some photos hope you'll post a few here.

    I was hoping to find the recipe for the malted milk chocolate cake!

    Yeah. Me too. Maybe if you just took a good regular chocolate cake recipe and added some malted milk?

    I was thinking the same, I'll take a chocolate malted milk cake, please, and maybe that LaSalle, too.

    That car reminds me of this scene, in a slightly older but related car:

    I checked, nothing on the Gold Medal web site.

    The second recipe was promising until I saw it called to use Ovaltine. Really not the same thing as malted milk powder.

    I didn’t know we had bakers among us. I do like a good chocolate cake, German chocolate is always tasty.

    The best bakers I've known have been gentlemen, since most of the posters here fit that description.
    I failed when I tried to make fudge brownies in graduate school. Could barely dig the concrete out of the pan to clean it.

    Good thing I don't like baking projects, or I'd be going into sugar overload this weekend.

    The key for Ovaltine, as it exists here anyway, is to get the chocolate malt flavor variety, and add extra malt. There's a product in German-speaking Europe called "Ovomaltine" which is much stronger, and excellent.

    It is interesting that the Cordoba commercial it calls out Oldsmobile. I guess Chrysler was trying to attract buyers that may be looking at the Cutlass Supreme. I thought the Cordoba was a good looking car and I did like the Corinthian leather. It was super soft/supple and the seats were comfortable.

    Chrysler had very comfortable seats in the late 70s through the mid 80s. That button tufted leather was awesome.

    That 78 would look much better with the wheels from that 77. And still, all I can see is Smokey and the Bandit II.

    @stickguy: As you know the Maverick is about 200 inches long, which is 16.6 feet. That actually makes the Maverick longer than a shortbed F-100 from the 1960s or F-150 from the 1970s.

    Going through the archive I came across this period British ad, I like points 3 and 5:

    Daughter's Christmas gift to me last year was two framed pages from a 1962 Studebaker ad. From the size, I'd say either 'Life' or 'Look' magazine. I like '63 and '64 Studes best of all, but the '62 is similar to a '63. Nice photography I think. The second page, not shown here, is all text, comparing the Lark to the other domestic compacts available at the time. I do believe the '62 and '63 Larks have a European vibe. The 15-inch wheels and four headlights make the car look larger I think.

    Here's one from the local newspaper on Nov. 22, 1963 which may be something few here have seen before, a Canadian-market special:

    The Chevy II was the 'Acadian' up there; wasn't the Chevelle the 'Beaumont'?

    This is identical, same color, interior, to dad's 72 Cortina that he had as a company car. He later inherited his boss's 74 Cortina E automatic. The E for 'Executive' replaced the GXL as the top model. The 72 was a manual.

    Only the versions sold at Pontiac-Buick dealers. Remember that up here at the time Pontiac competed head to head with Chevy and often outsold the bowtie brand. But you could buy the Chevy II and Chevelle at your friendly local Chevrolet dealer.

    Thought this was an interesting M-B ad, from the Studebaker-Packard era.

    Maybe on a Ponton coupe or something similar.

    Using the grille and/or star was a theme of MB ads of the era:

    I have boxes of brochures that I've accumulated over the years. I thought @texases might appreciate this.

    Yes, sir! Mine was a '79, but when the GTI came out, just had to go with it. For all the complaints VWs get regarding reliability, mine never had a major problem over 13 years.
  • sdasda Member Posts: 6,967

    I found the 79 Gucci Seville brochure. It was a third party in Miami that customized them and the Cadillac warranty was honored. $22900 base. I apologize for the rough pics, but still fun to see. The brochure was a huge fold out design which I couldn't capture by my phone camera.
