    I wonder how many Fieros caught fire during the filming of that ad?

    Andy: this is a little off-topic, but in an amazing coincidence of happenstance (hmm.. tautology?), I went from seeing the video below (which came from a post on Golfmk7.com) to viewing the 80s movies in your thread.

    What can I say? Car advertisements certainly have come a very long way since the early days! But, I guess that it's in the eye of the viewer as to whether the way that we advertise cars now can be called "progress"!

    Not sure that the "birth" of Audi's RS 3 can legitimately be likened to the procreation of a child - complete with birthing liquids, no less!! But perhaps Audi owners do see these metal objects as surrogate human beings. Disturbing, or enlightened....??

    How about a tasteful classic:

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    So cheesy. So 80's:



    Where we're going, we don't need (many) pixels.
