This is a cool car ad.

I noticed a slight love affair with Ford.
Do they have any involvement with aviation?

RealHigh:
I am not sure if Ford has much involvement in aviation. Many of there adds makes reference to aviation. My brochure for my Lincoln indicates 'four turbine styled aluminum rims' like a 747.

I'm so old I remember all those ads. My favourite was the Continental ad at IAD. I'd forgotten that the T-Bird was that ugly in 1970 though.

The new Explorer-based Lincoln SUV is going to be called the "Aviator", I am not sure if a flight related name is very good though, after all the bad publicity the Exploder got for flying off the road  Big thumbs up.

Sheesh Superfly! One really has to dig into the archives to find these. It looks like the the 1960s (the jet age) was the best time to find car pics with an aviation theme. Here's a 1970 Monaco featured in a 1969 magazine ad. Incidentally, your Thunderbird ad features in the same magazine.

This ad was a bit big for the scanner, but here goes........ Now why would I think this dates back to 1982?

Now why would I think this dates back to 1982?

1. 'Countdown' song and video by RUSH which featured the Space Shuttle released Sept. 1982

2. First model year for that body style

3. Parachutte pants the guy is wearing was in style then

4. All of the above

Superfly,

I believe the BMW ad came out of a 1978 edition of National Geogeraphic - I can't remember the month off the top of my head.

How about this one for a Nissan Sabre - a hatchback derivative of the Sentra........



Well it would have been better if the two pages were side by side, but I can only do that in an html e-mail - it doesn't want to work here. This was a made for TV ad back in about 1995. The Hercules was hired from SAFAIR and the Nissan Sabre was shoved off the end of the ramp somewhere over the Namib Desert in Namibia. I think three cars were used for the shoot. The weight of the engine caused the first one to plunge straight down, which is not what the director had in mind. I think they eventually sent an engine-less vehicle off the ramp and that stayed pretty much straight and level, as you can see on the second page.
