Everything's Coming Up Color

I just came across this while looking for something else today and thought people here would enjoy it. Hopefully it's something nobody has seen before.

1966 TV Set Buyers' Guide to new models from the publishers of TV Guide. The text is interesting enough, and clearly written to push sales of the advertisers' sets, but the pics and ads are great, including some stuff I've never seen before. And there are some real lookers in there (and also not): The Motorola, Olympic and Packard Bell color combos, the GE console with the flappy garage-door front, the Admiral Concord combo, that Magnavox Roundie Combo.

The less said about that homely Early American Zenith and pretty much everything in the RCA ad, the better.

The Harper and the Whitby are not bad looking RCA sets...

Somehow I have (or was it had) the GE play anywhere portable, a portacolor, the Zenith 12" transistor portable (the white cabinet version), and had a Cutlass (wasn't an olds so I sold it :P).

Wish I had the Westinghouse Jetset.

Very intresting!
Anyway, I thought where just a few models per manufacturer... but it seems they where more than I thought.
And I thought that "G.E." Portacolor was at least 4 pounds heavier.
About that stupid tax, in Romania, after we entered E.U. (1st of January 2007) the import taxes and luxury taxes (even some cheaper electronics had an luxury tax!) prices droped... at least 15%.
