Since the first T.V. commercials, the automobile has been one of the most advertised items of all time. Early on, famous cartoon characters were popular to use on car commercials. For the last few decades, auto manufacturers have outspent more than any other industry in the television commercial market.
These are some of my favorite commercials selected for historical reasons listed, mainly sticking through the 1960's through 1980's. Sure, there have been some pretty funny commercials lately, but I have tried sticking with some of the older historical models, ones that you may have seen yourself decades ago.
