IMO, that is one of the best teaser ads of all time.

Don't remember this, but I did have Mohawk snow tires on my KR convertible. Sorry, no pictures.

Ok, now allow me some self indulgence -

This is a pretty darn rare piece from my collection, an original XR7-G showroom poster.

These things measure a huge 48" x 36".
