Sales Brochure for the 1957 Rambler, "The Story of the Man Who Bought a Dinosaur"

Summary

In the 1950s, Nash competed with Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors by offering something the Big Three didn't: small cars. The Nash Rambler station wagon was 10 inches shorter than its rivals, and its 30 mile-per-gallon fuel economy was twice that of bigger wagons. Nash portrayed the Big Three's cars as oversized dinosaurs by comparison.
