Few model names evoke as much zeal as “Supra.” Last week, Toyota finally made it clear that it will revive the name for a new sports car that it unveiled in racing guise at the Geneva Motor Show. It even wore number 90 on the doors, a nod to the A90 chassis code that would succeed the fourth-generation JZA80. That car, its predecessor, achieved mythical status among enthusiasts, one that is almost impossible to live up to.
How excited are you about the new Supra?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What was your favorite JNC commercial as a kid?”
There were so many good comments this week it was hard to arrive at a winner. Many classics were put forth, like Chris Tonn‘s suggestion of Black Gold and Keith Measures‘ nomination of the synchronized stunt driving of the Isuzu Gemini. We also enjoyed commercials from other countries we never saw in the States, like banpei‘s recommendation of a scandalous Dutch Mazda Xedos 6 ad, or Jason Ward‘s pick for an Australian Mitsubishi Galant spot with a Beach Boys rewrite.
In the end, we enjoyed xs10shl‘s comment the most, and the commercial was a hoot as well:
Aside from jumping out of my seat and cheering after seeing the Barbie and Ken Z commercial for the first time during the Super Bowl, I’m impartial to Joe Isuzu on the Autobahn. I’m a sucker for advertising which starts with misdirection, and ends with a big reveal.
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
