Entries in AC Spark Plugs (1)

Patti Page... what a piston... er, I mean pistol!

Page-ing all drivers!

Perky Patti Page teamed up with AC Spark Plugs in 1958 in this campy cartoon ad. 

When you replace spark plugs, ask for AC... Used on more new cars than any other brand!

Well, that about sums it up. This must have been done during the Patti Page Oldsmobile Show Special that was presented in 1958. That's the only tie in I can imagine - otherwise this is more than a little random. Regardless, I'm sure she brought some much needed glamour to the spark plug industry. Sparky the stallion looks impressed!
