Super Friends Car Ad - 1977

Oh man, do I want this so bad.

I think I had this cheerily goofy Super Friends Car as a kid, but I've never seen it since...not at a con, not on eBay, not anywhere, so this catalog ad will have to do for now.

They look like they're part of some Macy's Day parade or something(at least until the inevitable super-villain attack).
Unusual that Aquaman is there instead of Wonder Woman, isn't it? Thank Neptune for small miracles.

You didn't really think they'd let a woman drive, did you?

You've got to love AHI. Their packaging is so bad but charming. Their sculpting and painting looks like a kid let lose with Play-Doh and Testors model paint. But dangit if they don't scream "70s!" The ever-changing packaging artwork they used seems like a breath of fresh air compared to the over-branded, rigid style-guide work used today.

Look how much taller Batman is than Supes on the box!
