Cast-Iron Advertising for Buick (1950s)

Buick Ads on Newspaper Paper Weights

Back in the 1950s, Buick turned cast-iron newspaper paperweights into ads. I have no idea how many cars these ad-weights sold (I bet Buick brand managers in the 1950s didn’t either), but — man — wouldn’t it be great to have one of these holding down stray papers on your desk right now??

More old newspaper paper weights at NYT.
