Car commercials

Car commercials have always been entertaining to me, but watching old car commercials is something else. For instance, check out this old Ford minvan commercial

There have been some doozies in Australia over the years.

This one a generic one for Holden Cars from the 70's, complete with a song:
Holden cars - football, meat pies, kangaroos,
https://youtu.be/VGW-WX77zjY

Talking of groovy songs.... Holden Nova Australian Ad 1989
https://youtu.be/H5BVqS3QT60

One with a name you Muricans will recognise.... for the Holden Apollo with Buzz Aldrin in Australia 1991
https://youtu.be/37aQqgWGJbI

Ford Falcon Australian ad with half a dozen local race drivers....
https://youtu.be/9lb4sZJz2ww


Have You Driven a Ford Lately (Australia) - TV Commercial
https://youtu.be/qO7wDFGQB6w


One for boot skootin' cowboys with Ford American trucks and an Alan Jackson Song track. Oh and scenes of trucks with another truck in the tray, and one on a trailer. Going up a mountain.

Yes I find it moving. OK, I know that shome shay it's somewhat "devaluing" which is not my case, of course. A young guy pursueing his dream is refreshing.

If I write and send a letter to a woman sayin':"Yesterday, we passed in the street and I saw you looking at me with interest. I only have to be with you a few minutes and . . . I promise you won't forget our experience together." Your answer is? If you fail attempting to kill yourself, the car is?

I want to punch things every time this commercial comes on.

There's DNA, and then there is Heavy Duty DNA or HDNA. Sorry GM you left out a letter in your abbreviation.

Ford Aerostar? The little piece of crap looking like nothing on wheels? Was so much a handful that it was restricted at 90 mph max here. The only hotel I know of using one as an airport shuttle was Le Touquet Westminster. They kept it for decades, the value being less than nothing after a single ride!
