1976 magazine ad for Winston cigarettes
1976 magazine ad for Winston cigarettes

Bone shards:

Winston sponsored NASCAR’s elite division with the Winston Cup series from 1971 to 2003. 

Winston was once the world’s best selling cigarette until it was bumped by Marlboro in the 1970s.

Fred and Barney used to smoke Winstons.

Some science about chest hair.

The ad copy:

When your taste grows up, so should your cigarette.

What you want from a cigarette changes. Once I smoked just to be like everybody else. Now I know what smoking’s all about. I smoke for taste. And Winston’s real taste is what I want. Winston is for real.

Warning: The Surgeon General Has Determined That Cigarette Smoking Is Dangerous To Your Health.

19 mg. ‘tar”, 1.3 mg. nicotine av. per cigarette, FTC Report APR. ’76.
