Choose a man’s car that suits a woman’s taste … the NEW RENAULT 5. Choose a woman’s clothes that suit a man’s taste … clothes that are news from ST. HONORE. (Here a rock an’ roll number, £9.)
Thank goodness we’ve advanced beyond advertising copy like this, but personally I don’t think car design has advanced in a pleasant way beyond the 1970s so… you win some, you lose some.

…or four… if it’s a party. Cram in the Elvis discs and all the coke you’ll need. Just lift the tailgate – and fill … and fill … and fill. The NEW RENAULT 5 is the three-door car that suits the Seventies. The clothes are something else … frankly fun in Fifties style. Outfits £14 each by ST. HONORE.
…sometimes more. any girl with a license can play. That nifty little wardrobe-on-wheels … the NEW RENAULT 5 stocked to the sun-roof with ST. HONORE gear, £12.50, £12 and £9, is guaranteed to get any girl out of a traffic jam.
Advert for the Fiat Panda VIP Limited Edition.
