Read 'Glorification of Speed'

G'day Everyone,


I know this may not be posted in the right seciton but hey.. its worth a try...

Im currently researching on the topic of the ban of specific advertising that glorifies speed for an enlish presentation. My only problem is that i am finding it hard to find any old newspaper articles as today you need to be members to database sites (eg. lexis nexis)

Also, i have having trouble finding screenshots of particular ads that are in question. This include the MX-5, Corrolla, Escape (beach soccer), Monaro (game over), Laser SR2.

If anyone out there has access to resources of this kind, it would be greatly appreciated.


Cheers,
Cam :bcool:

I strongly recommend magazine articles. If you are in Vic, there is a store on Burke Road, Camberwell called Motor Book World. Just grab any Wheels or Motor mag from the past few years and you'll be sure to get some info.

Good luck.

Read Articles

There's some articles at drive.com.au about it (no pics though).


Ford fears advertising power cut

Gone in 60 seconds the racy car commercial

Stop 'reckless' car ads, say motoring groups

Ad for Alfa male toned down

Don't do this at home, kids, says Holden

Tray cheek: Holden ad draws flak

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
