Marietta Dodge: “VAN-O-MANIA ’89!” (circa 1989)

Before Toyotathon, Atlanta car buyers will probably remember this shrill voice touting VANOOOOOOMAYNIA!!!!! Anyone remember who this was?

Georgia Federal: “Putting Real Life Into Banking” (circa 1988)

Remember Georgia Federal before it was bought up by wave after wave of consolidations in the late 1990s?

Whatever happened to the small, local bank?

Clayton County: Robert Kern (circa 1988)

Remember when Clayton County was mostly a bunch of open land just outside Atlanta? Remember when they extended the airport across the county line?

Carpets of Dalton: “Under the Big Sign” (late 1980s-early 1990s)

North Georgia never had to worry about affordable flooring when one could buy factory-direct from Carpets of Dalton. Remember when the CoD sign was the ONLY “big sign” on I-75 North? It was a sort of waypoint signifying more-or-less halfway to Chattanooga, from my childhood memory.

Then there’s Atlanta¬†Braves announcer Don Sutton walking us through the unbelievable Seven Football Fields of Savings, under the Big Sign in Dalton, Georgia.

Coast To Coast In Ten Minutes

Just a quick video concept project I threw together this week.¬† It’s comprised of recycled footage from The Great American Road Trip and set to some great road rock.
