Chiseled abs and bikinis can sell just about anything, right? According to the minds behind those Carl’s Jr. ads—and countless others—you’d think that’d be true.

This idea that “sex sells” has hung around for more than a century, and by this point it’s almost accepted as a doctrine. And those are exactly the types of claims researchers love putting to the test.

John Wirtz, an advertising professor at the University of Illinois, conducted a meta-analysis of 78 peer-reviewed studies that examined the efficacy of sex appeals in ads. The results: participants weren’t any more likely to remember a brand name or purchase a product, and, in fact, they were more likely to view the brand negatively.

No, it’s not a car, but it sure has some car features, doesn’t it? This seriously cool looking 1958 Lone Star Meteor speedboat is being auctioned  here on eBay  is already up above $15,000, but based on the rarity and style might just be worth it!

Lone Star Boats was founded in 1945 by a pair of brothers. The company went through several ownership variations before branching out into fiberglass boats in 1952. Bob Hammond, the founder of Glastron, was hired to run the fiberglass boat division. In 1956, the division brought out this very unusual boat that has a lot of car in it’s styling.

This is an ad for the Meteor dating from 1957, but it doesn’t look like Lone Star changed much in a year. As a side note, original list price for the 15′ boat in 1957 was $1,295. These folks look pretty happy maybe you would be too!
