1980's Car Commercials

In the 1980’s we had Madonna, Ronald Reagan and perhaps one of the most memorable cars of all time, the Lamborghini Countach. We also had the likes of the Pontiac Fiero, the Yugo, as well as all manner of terrible transportation from the Chrysler Corporation. It was a dismal time for just about every automaker out there, so to combat their lack of producing quality products car companies relied on one simple thing – marketing. Sticker kits where thrown around like beads at Mardi Gras, as were window louvers and body kits. The advertisers, not knowing what to do simply relied on flashy ads that were packed full of pop music, big hair and catchy jingles. Watching these commercials now makes me wonder how these horrific ads ever got made in the first place. Click through for ten of the 1980’s most atrocious car commercials.
