Since there seems to be some hoopla going on about the new "Car carrier" ad by Chevy right now - i'm reminded of the other "major" commerical chevy did.


The year is 1983 - and Chevy has to hold off the next Corvette until 1984. Since this will be a new Corvette - Chevy really needs to make it popular in order to keep the nameplate alive in these difficult times. Chevy pools it's creative marketing tallents to make a first ever TV commercial for the Corvette. Estimated at a cost of over $1 million US and a running time of 1:30s (unheard of at the time) - Chevy cranked out C4 wth style.

That's a great ad! They make the car to be like Kitt from Knight Rider.
