P-51D/GT-350(?) ad

I have a recollection of what I think may have been a series of ads or
set-up photos with aircraft and matched autos. The one I remember was
an immaculate P-51D posed with a Ford Mustang, possibly a Shelby GT350.
It might have been a Ford ad, a Shelby ad, or just some photographer's
idea of fun. And there might have been others. Anyone remember
this/these, and know where they were published? Or a way to see
online? Now with the Trumpeter 1:24 P-51D a diorama suggests itself .

Plus a Supermarine & Triumph combo. I seem to recall seeing that ad, too.

Now all we need is a 1/24th F-86D and all the '56 Chrysler lineup....

Or a 1/24 F-102A to go with the various XKE kits out there. Not referring to an ad of course, but the stunning Aurora box art.
Come to think of it, Renwal did an XKE in 1/48. Hmmm.....

It may have been either a poster or a calendar for a Roush Mustang. We had a photo shoot on our ramp about three or four years ago with 3 of his Roush Mustangs, and either one or both of his P-51D Mustangs.

Used to park my Pyro 1/32 Mercedes-Benz SSK around a Revell 1/32 Bf 109G.

Nope - sorry, e.
The Mercedes SSK was a sportscar. Designed by Herr Doktor Porsche, no less. The G35 was the 6 wheeler. And somehow, I really doubt if Alessandra ever even saw Benito's old one.
Oh, and Triumph never used the "Tr" designation on Spitfires. The Tr-2, Tr-3, Tr-4, Tr-5(Tr-250 in the States) Tr-6, Tr-7 & Tr-8 were a couple of different lines of sportscars.....the Spitfire never had a "Tr" number, that I'm aware of. The hardtop/fastback version was known as the GT-6, however.

No; a Spitfire was a Spitfire. The Triumph TRs were distinctly different cars, from the TR-2 to the TR-7/8. Some of them were produced alongside the Spitfire, but the two only ever shared some running gear parts and very minor trim items. Not bodies. -- C.R. Krieger (Been there; done that)

How about a 1978 Ford Thunderbird with a Nieuport 28?

I do remember seeing the Spitfire/Spitfire photo. Very nice, that would make another dio I'd enjoy. But is there a good Triumph Spitfire model in any scale?

Aurora did a 1963 Triumph Spitfire in 1/32 - as well as a lot of other British "sporty cars" of that era - TR 3, MG TD etc.
I've no idea how "good" they might have been.
