Those early ads turned a youngster into a believer
Is there anybody of my generation who doesn't remember the wonderful ads that Honda first ran in the 1960s when they came to America: "You meet the nicest people on a Honda"?
They were brilliant. They were more than just pictures -- they were an image. They showed people smiling and having fun. What a way to introduce yourself to this country.
I was a young guy at the time, but I remember thinking there was something special about the Super Cub. I didn't actually think about buying one of them. I was too young -- I was still riding a bicycle! But the impression obviously stuck with me.
