I just found a Life magazine from September 27, 1969, that was loaded with new car advertisements (which is to be expected in a September issue). Car manufacturers introduced their new model cars typically in the early fall. Here are some “land yachts” from Detroit.
In 1970 I worked with a guy who had this vehicle and in the small shopping center where we worked, he could never find a spot to park his monster.
Here is the issue of Life magazine that these cars ads are from.

I like the Camaro. My first car was a Ford 1967 LTD in bronze.

Awesome! Yeah, the Camaro RS first caught my eye but then it had to be the 1971 Chevelle that I fell for. LTD’s were big, really big but cool.
