Gloom Chaser: Buy a New Automobile

This postcard is "Gloom Chaser No. 1," published by E. C. Kropp during the depression era. Who was still buying new automobiles ?

"Well, they are the sort of people who are unshaken in spirit and who still have something in their purse. Not only buying automobiles and not necessarily fools, they refuse to live in a blue fog and gloom…Yes, reckless and improvident, the fools are still buying new automobiles, and some day, when enough of them get together, they'll tow America out of this mess."

With the economy in another big mess, and with car sales down so much that the American car manufacturers are begging for a bailout, we could use a lot of fools like these.
