I found these old posters recently. Check out the Michelin Man's Grandpa! He's a smoking, drinking, bike riding fool.

i'm pretty sure he just smoked a rock on that last one....or maybe just downed the original Coca-Cola formula

And apparently some LSD on the third one.

I miss the days of hand painted/drawn advertising graphics.

I picked up this image awhile back when Bizutch originally posted it. Here it is scanned, and cleaned up in photo shop. If anyone would like to have it emailed, just PM. I already made some T-shirts out of this guy!
