My friend said to me the other day that the 80s was the last time anyone on tv drove in a real car; meaning that in movies and tv shows afterwards regular people were portrayed more and more as driving glamourous and completely unrealistic vehicles. I couldn’t agree more- in the 80s if you were on tv you were hauling your Walmart bags in he family Station Wagon just like the rest of us! Here are some memorable ads from the 80s from the mundane to the marvelous as well as some unforgettable ad slogans. Saturn 1989: A different kind of company, a different kind of car. Isuzu: Lying Joe Isuzu Chevrolet: Like a rock Jaguar: A blending of art and machine Vauxhall: Once driven, forever smitten. Renault: Renault built a better car. Volvo: Tested by dummies, driven by the intelligent. Toyota: Today, tomorrow, Toyota. Toyota: The best built cars in the world. Toyota: Oh, what a feeling. Honda: The power of dreams. Ford: Built Ford tough. Ford: Have you driven a Ford lately? BMW: The ultimate driving machine.
