Default Re: More old Commercials anyone remember these?

I hated those old Loyal Garner Cutter Ford ads.

From around the same time in the early 1980s were the Russ Francis and Melveen Leed ad series done for American Savings & Loan. They parodied "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in one of them. Could not stand any of those.

Getting back to car ads.... Ron Jacobs was the pitchman for Honolulu Ford at Ala Moana Blvd. in the early 80s...

And Pat Morita did a stint as pitchman for Rainbow Chevrolet around the time of the "Karate Kid" movie.

Anyone remember the ad series the U.H. basketball team and coach did for Pflueger Lincoln Mercury in the 1970s. I think the BB coach at that time was Bruce O'Neil; some of the players got paid or something for the ads; NCAA found out and I think the UH BB program was put under probation or something... was long ago, so if I am wrong on the details, somone please correct them.
