Flashback Friday: 1993 "Multiply" Newspaper Ad

This folksy Saturn newspaper advertisement was one of many used to promote Saturn's newly expanded 1993 model year lineup of S-Series vehicles. The ad featured many of Saturn's classic advertising elements from that time period, including a catchy headline, a prominent photo, and a few clever sentences written to make the reader feel right at home with Saturn. "Left to their own devices, they've been known to multiply," read the main heading of the text. The ad featured side profile pictures (from top to bottom) of the '93 SC1, SW1, and SL1 models. Beneath the four-door sedan, additional verbiage introduced "the 1993 Saturn SL starting at only $9495."

Two years ago there were only 28 places to find a Saturn, and only the coupe and sedan to buy. Now there are 184 places to shop, with more on the way, and seven Saturns to choose from including two brand new wagons. So come on by. As we've always said, the more the merrier.

Next-Generation Buick Regal

David Thomas from Cars.com Kicking Tires: If you think domestic automakers are only hitting up U.S. taxpayers for help, go north of the border. Canada's National Post newspaper reported today that General Motors is asking the Canadian government for $2.4 billion in aid. In exchange, it promises to bring a new Buick model — the Regal, which is already sold in China — to its Ontario plant for North American distribution. GM says it will position the Regal to compete with the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, but doesn't say what its new LaCrosse — set to debut in Detroit next month — will be positioned against.
