What we need is a high resolution version of that ad!!
I was just saying to somebody today that I was building an ad for the Charger 500 because it was never done - back in the day.
I guess I was wrong!!
(And ironically...the word "SLICK"is used in both ads!! This is after I conducted my little survey to pick the best word!!)

Great find.  Classic auto images is the company that can reproduce the old ads in large size.  If you can send it to them they would probably love to reproduce this and they will probably give the sender a free 24"x36" print.
www.classicautoimages.com  I know I will buy one, maybe even two!!

Or...you could send it to Mike Collins (aka: 6PKRunner) on this board. He can make laminated posters of the same, or bigger size.
I've got a whole room full of them here at my place.

Hey Dave, where did you find that photo at? I would love a clear resolution shot of it. Or to know where it came from to locate an origional one.

I bet I can guess which car it is in the advertisement though.  nana

You think its the west coast press car or the east coast press car Ghoste? You have a 50 50 shot at it. I haven't ever seen the add before Dave posted it, so i"m just speculating, but either way the VIN would be within 4 digits at the most.

I'm only guessing west coast because of the background scenery.  Was the Dodge ad agency out of LA at the time?

Hi, does anyone know if the "Slick" Charger 500 Ad is an original ad from back in the day or did someone just create it?  scratchchin

 Either way it is looks real sharp, thanks.

The Slick ad was created recently by a member here. There is a whole thread on it.

The one that says "Slicket way to drive" is a vintage ad.

Yeah, the picture I used for the ad was out of an old MoPerformance magazine, a feature on the first Charger 500, which now belongs to Jerry Service in Detroit.
But, I tried to eliminate most of the distinguishing features that would identify it as being that particular car.

 Nascarxx29 Is that the same black automatic that Car&Driver tested in the dec. 88 issue?
As a side note Gene, the spoiler was painted white to match the wing! LOL
