A 50 year old Hillman ad touts the benefits of the auto transmission.
These days we are used to Sat Nav, stability control, airbags in the seats and DVD players in cars.
It was a different story back in 1960, when Hillman had something new to crow about, the automatic transmission. A “go” pedal. and a “stop” pedal the ad proclaims, along with “your hands never leave the wheel”
Obviously they hadn’t forseen texting.
