World War II print ads.
These ads abounded during World War II and were used reinforce brand awareness while a company was supporting the war effort instead of being able to provide consumer goods.
Nearly all these images are from the collection of Benoit De Mulder. Thank you Benoit for sharing these with us.

There was a guy who made t-shirts of several B-17/Cyclone ads for Studebaker fans.

I don't know if he's still active, he used to advertise in the Studebaker Drivers Club magazine.
