Truth in advertising ?.
All car manufacturers have been guilty at one
time or another of making exagerated claims about their products. While
Nissan were fairly honest with the public when it came to providing descriptions
and specifications for their vehicles, some of their advertising artwork
was a little less honest. In fact some of the drawings they used were nothing
short of being outragously of of scale. Below are some of the artworks
used for the 30 and 31 series Cedrics, deliberately drawn way out of scale,
or featuring people closer to midgets than average height humans, that
make the car look positively huge.
