  1. “They greatly out wear their guarantee.” That being the case, one wonders why the company didn’t offer a longer guarantee. Anyway, I want that Fiat. You drive that car, you look like a boss.


  2. Wow, Bowser really pulls out all the stops–day AND night? Plus they served motorists everywhere, not just in some places.

    While car ads aren’t my first choice of viewing pleasure, you’ve made it entertaining, Kerbey 🙂 Pleasure as always.


  3. They actually ran an ad that listed the amount of deaths by automobile accidents. I do not care that it went down so much from the previous year. Whew boy on that one. Last year 25,000 kids died after eating our lead paint chips. This we we cut that in half! I just can’t see it in other industries, Kerbey.


    1. Nope, I guess not. Today we just have commercials about lawsuits for anyone who took last year’s new drug and now has 14 fingers and no hair.
