  1. These are quite cool, I love vintage stuff. Where did you find them? I remember some of the older MI license plates said something like “Winter Wonderland” or “Water Wonderland” on them, too.

  2. I loved looking at old pamphlets. Matt’s aunt just let me browse through the fashions from 1980. Loved it!

  3. These are awesome pics and advertisements for Michigan. I am originally from Mi. and actually recognize seeing a couple from when I was young. It’s amazing you have all those. I got stuck on your site for a bit reading and remembering. It is so beautiful way up North Michigan. I loved it up there. I am now in Alabama but nothing like Michigan. The 4 seasons were my favorite. The beautiful trees and sparkly snow. The Blue Lakes with no gators. Lol. Thanks for sharing. I loved it.

  4. The first and the third ads caught my attention. Actually all the ads are awesome. Looks like 80-ish or 90-ish comic book illustrations. This will surely be a head-turner

  5. These ads are awesome! I love looking at vintage advertising; comparing the quality of the art work, the photographs, the lengthy text, it’s all so different now!

  6. Now that’s the kind of running atlrcie I can get my teeth into. For me, something light, but with a lot of character does the trick a nice IPA or something hoppy. Badger’s Hopping Hare was my post North Tyneside 10k tipple.Not sure you can beat a good from-the-hops home brew mind for running related brews, you can’t beat a good batch of Green Bullet hops for a light and tasty brew.
