Awesome Old TV Ads for Cars + An Interesting Angle

by on October 29, 2012

in Entertainment - Consumer TV news, entertainment, sports and other opinions.Talk about a flashback! Check out this 1963 TV ad comparing a Chevrolet Impala versus a Ford Galaxie.

These are how ads were done in the day… serious, somber, informative. (Sounding) I think you’ll love this… (Thanks to Larry R. for the YouTube pointer)

And after Larry pointed me to that one, there were a few others that popped up in my field of view. (That, and I didn’t want to just put up one, solitary video.)

Check out this cuter ad… (IS THAT A CORVAIR in there???) Check out that uplifting, Disney-like thematic background music!

Wow… This is a car crash test of a 1959 Chevy Bel Air vs a 2009 Chevy Malibu. That must have hurt to put an old classic into a crash test. I would have been cringing.

It’s a scary look back at our “classic” passenger/driver protection! You would think with all that steel, versus one of today’s cars, it would survive a head on better than that. Good to know and see that today’s technology is doing the job they claim it to be doing.
