VINTAGE AD - JOHNSON MOTORS
Check out this old Johnson Motors Triumph ad found on the Flat Track Thunder website. It features legend Dick Dorresteyn getting some air time on his Bonneville. Johnson Motors used flat track racing and success at the Bonneville Salt Flats (as demonstrated in this ad) to move hundreds of thousands of Triumphs from post-WWII to the early '70s. It's too bad Triumph USA is still using those old exploits to market the new Bonneville line without investing in modern U.S. racing. Perhaps in the future.
