    This is pretty cool... gets you thinking how old marketing really is, and I bet general concepts that worked very well hundreds of years ago still do today.

    I mean look at the layout! Classical advertorial with testimonials and a strong call to action, amazing!

    I dont think its a zip submit. They are asking the users to write ni the mailing ifo so that they can mail the kit or something like that. I might be wrong also.

    Hahaha oh god the glide-o-bike, why am I not surprised that never made it big. Maybe because of all the injuries.

    Yeah it's an ad for plans that cost 25c, there are still similar ads in the back of magazines like popular science and popular mechanics, although they're a lot more expensive than 25c, and not for glide-o-bikes. I remember wanting to buy plans to build an autogyro when I was 11 or 12.. :)
