The nation’s love affair with automobiles is well over a hundred years old, and our obsession can be traced through the years by looking at advertising as cars progressed from romantic plaything to daily necessity.

The first known national ad about a car appeared this week 113 years ago in the Scientific American, for the Winton Motor Carriage with the headline “Dispense with a horse.” As millions of Americans did just that, competing car companies increased their spending on advertising.
