Original Chevette TV advert

Postby jbowman » 02 Mar 2008, 00:49

Thought it might be of interest to everyone, I'd never seen it before & loved the Chevette slogan, lol.

How do I put a message in this space under each of my posts?

I did think the opening shot of the Chevette drifting across the beach perfectly sums up what the car is all about. Small, nimble, rear wheel drive - I'd like to see a mk1 Fiesta trying the same thing. The Chevette, the Triumph Toledo, and to a lesser extent the Toyota Starlet, were the last of a dying breed of small rear wheel drive cars. However, the rest of the advert was utter pap.

playing Iron Maiden in the background made a really interesting counterpoint to that advert, I must say...
