Honda CR-Z Ad Glimpses Soichiro's Genius


The Honda CR-Z went on sale in Japan last week. It may not be the long-awaited reincarnation of the CR-X, but the accompanying commercial gives us glimpses of past greats like the Super Cub, T360, S600s both roadster and coupe, and Civic. There’s even a shot of the original bullet train, the 0 Series Shinkansen. The Impossible Dream it’s not, but the sequel is rarely as good as the original.

    P.S. LOL at catcha bot entry “stank affairs” – sums up the current atmosphere at Honda quite nicely.

    It’s really weird, I saw it here, it definitely posted.

    To paraphrase:

    “here’s an emotional montage of our glorious, engineering-lead history. It’s is significant because it played absolutely no role in the design ethos of this soulless, cynical marketing ploy.

    Looks pretty good on the road. The interior is a bit too fussy for my liking though.
