    Great commercials, thanks for posting.

    Do you remember this high tech 1983 Pontiac Trans Am commercial?

    And how about this 1982 Toyota Celica commercial - remember when Toyota's jingle was "Oh what a feeling, Toyota"?

    Now is it just my ears, or does the ad suddenly change from promoting the 1982 Toyota Celica to the 1983 Toyota Celica.?

    Ken.
    Ken,

    The ad is not the best audio quality, but from what I can hear it sounds like it's talking about the 1982 Celica throughout the whole commercial.

    Here's a 1978 Mustang II Ghia ad (remember Ford's old slogan - "A better idea from Ford"):

    You know, this car - the Mustang II - grows on me more and more with every passing year.

    Notice how cars of that era boasted of their 0-50 times? By that standard, 7.1 seconds sounds pretty quick!

    The 1986 commercial told you virtually nothing (no, nothing) about the car. What a dumb ad.

    A great many car ads are guilty of that; they're just promoting an image and emotion, after all....

    Good observation about modern commercials, they don't really say anything. They are exactly like our politicans who make a speech/presentation and they don't say a darn thing. It's all fluff.

    You never hear any car commercials anymore talk about features or horsepower or other figures. Instead it's all fluff.
