Nash 30

1934
Nash - Black and white 7" x 11" ad that talks about the Quality built into Nash automobiles. The ad has a photo of a Dark 4-Door parked on a flat area overlooking what looks like a lake. There are two people sitting in the car while three others, dressed in light-colored clothing, stand in front of the car admiring the scenery. The ad headline claims that "It's what the other fellow says...That Counts!" and the ad talks about how Nash owners and their competitors are talking about their quality. This, the adwriters feel, is more important that what the company has to say. The ad gives prices of $775 for a 4-Door Sedan, $775 to $865 for a Big Six, $1065 to $1145 for an Advanced Eight, $1575 to $1625 for an Ambassador Eight, $1820 to $2055 for the Ambassador Eight with the longer wheelbase and $595 to $695 for the Nash-Built LaFayette.

Nash 4

1943
Full color 7 3/4" x 10 3/4" ad that barely mentions the non-wartime activities of this company yet delivers a very powerful message to remind those at home what was going on far-away. There is a picture of a blonde girl in fatigues standing with a stunned look on her face as a U.S. plane is parked behind her with a Red Cross vehicle next to it. The headline says "I looked into my brother's face" and the text tells the story of jow, as a nurse, she had to check wounded soldiers as they were brought in. She would comfort them out and look for serious injuries and, as she was wiping the mud from one soldier's face, she realized that he was her brother. The text talks about the difficulties with mentally floating between a peaceful past and the horror of war, especially when it becomes as personal as it did for this nurse. It reminds us that the purpose for this action was to "keep on having the kind of America my brother and I grew up in" and we are reminded to "Keep it that way until we come back!". The ad proudly admits that their pre-war production has been replaced with the building of 2,000 h.p. Pratt & Whitney engines for Navy Vought Corsair fighters...making intricate Hamilton Standard propellers and readying production lines to build Sikorsky helicopters for the Army Air Force.

Nash-Kelvinator - Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad done as World War II was winding down and reminding the Servicemen that what they were fighting for, what they remembered, still existed at home. The headline says "Waiting for You..." and has a drawing of a young man and his close-sitting girl driving on a scenic road in an open-topped car. The text scrolls off a list of memories and sensations that were probably vivid in the dreams of homesick soldiers and ends with the joyous mention that Nash would switch from "the building of engines of war to the making of two great new cars deesigned to be the finest, biggest, most comfortable, most economical, most advanced automobiles ever produced in their respective fields". They also mentioned plans to "build these cars in numbers three times greater than we did before the war" so they could "help contribute jobs, the opportunities, the futures which will insure the strong, vital and growing America all of us owe to those who are fighting and working to preserve it".

A man, generously called the World's Worst Trout Fisherman, had all the fishing equipment he would need but he never caught a trout. To change his luck he bought a 1952 Nash Airflyte and on Opening Day his luck did change. He caught Trout after Trout, releasing them all, when finally the Kindly Old Game Warden ambled by and complemented him on his luck. The fisherman said that he had to attribute it to his Airflyte at which point they began to compare the fisherman's Airflyte with the Game Warden's Statesman Airflyte. After comparing the selling points of both cars the Game Warden happened to mention that the good luck the man was having may have something to do with the fact he was fishing in a State Hatchery. The man lef t, never to fish again, trading everything in but his Airflyte for a Hawaiian Guitar.
