MOTOR-TOBER poster SAVE A PUMPKIN. CARVE THE ROAD.

Today we have the final items in our October MOTOR-TOBER series.

From 2009 come these two clever MOTOR-TOBER posters sent to MINI dealerships to promote the month-long MOTOR-TOBER event.

Above left is the “BOO.” poster with a MINI Cooper dressed in a sheet as a ghost.  The poster above right shows a MINI Cooper carved out like a pumpkin with the phrase “SAVE A PUMPKIN. CARVE THE ROAD.” below.
