collectible of the day: LET’S RECREATE AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY. ad


LET'S RECREATE AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY. adLET’S RECREATE AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY.* Let’s see what this street legal go-kart can do. Let’s find a big, empty parking lot. Let’s bust out the orange cones. Let’s pull out the stopwatch. Let’s set a slalom course for adventure. Let’s get ready. Let’s get set. LET’S MOTOR.

From early 2004 we have this interactive ad insert from Crispin Porter + Bogusky.  The fold-out ad has 8 punch-out folding orange cones to set up your own slalom course.

The footnote of the ad reads:

*Road & Track puts tons of new cars through their 700-ft. slalom test to measure handling and agility. It’s kind of a big deal. And considering a stock MINI Cooper beat some pretty serious rides, including the Dodge Viper SRT-10 and Porsche 911 Turbo, you may want to tell your friend riding shotgun to eat a very light lunch.

The MINI USA catalog number is INS001-04.
