1970 Chevrolet Impala

Robert De Niro was cruising the Boroughs of New York City long before he played a mentally ill cabbie in the 1976 Martin Scorsese classic Taxi Driver–six years before, to be exact. Taxi Driver hit theaters in 1976. De Niro, however, shows off an AMC Ambassador in this forgotten ad from way back in 1970.

1969 Oldsmobile Vista Cruise

1969 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser

Sometimes hindsight plays tricks on us. I have always been uncomfortable that the Talking Heads’ seminal album More Songs about Buildings and Food was available on 8-Track tape.

I associate the 1978 album with a progressive musical movement that endured through the Eighties. That fact that that same music could be purchased in a lousy, short-lived format known for premature failure is difficult for me to square.

1969 Thunderbird Landau

With a base price of $4949, the Ford Thunderbird Landau was the 6th most-expensive American coupe of 1969.

Topping the Billboard charts for 1969 was “Sugar, Sugar,” a painfully catchy pop ditty released by the Archies in May of that year. You can listen to the song by watching the YouTube video below:

1980 Lincoln Versailles

With a base price of $14,169, the Lincoln Versailles was the fourth most-expensive American sedan of 1980.

Though they are sometimes derided as “Yank Tanks,” traditional full-size American sedans are as much a part of U.S. car culture as the V8 engine and Interstate travel.

For the ABC television network, 1966 was a big year. The network elected to introduce 16 new programs that season–more than half of its prime-time lineup up. You can watch the intros from all of ABC’s new-for-’66 programs below.

Having been born in 1965, I can’t claim to have been very aware of the vehicles of 1970 when they were new, nor can I claim to have experienced them from behind the wheel.

1964 Rambler Ad

1964 Rambler Ad

The big car news for 1964 was the Ford Mustang. Ford launched the ‘Stang with a massive wave of promotion which, for a period of time, dominated television and print advertising. The strange part was that Ford’s pony car was actually an early 1965 model, launched early for maximum effect.

1984 Mercedes-Benz 240D Ad

1984 Mercedes-Benz 240D Ad

If you were paying attention to marketing in 1984, you likely remember Apple’s landmark television advertisement “1984.” The computer maker’s ad portrayed a dystopian world chillingly similar to the one conceived by George Orwell in his horrifying 1949 novel of the same name.
