I don't get it, Doug. Is this a current Chevy ad campaign?

Who are they trying to sell cars to? The old geezers who remember the tanks Chevy used to sell?

Let me lay some reality on this. They gave the '59 Chevy wings and it flew? Damn straight it did...it was banned from some bridges for a while because drivers claimed the wind picked the car right off the pavement. People didn't flock to the showroom, either. Back in the day, the '59 Chevy was considered one of the ugliest Chevies of all time.

Yeah, I remember carbs. I remember them flooding out, their chokes sticking, their incessant need of mixture adjustment, linkage adjustment, and Gumout cleaning. Thank the holy Earth they sorted the bugs out of fuel injection.

The Granddaddy of Bling? Come on...all cars in the late Fifties could be had with tons of shiny shit. If you wanted something flashy, a Buick or Mercury would be more the ticket. I know the '57 Chevy is an icon, but it wasn't all that in it's day. Ford outsold Chevy that year, and the Forward Look Chryslers were by far the most exciting items in the showrooms that year.

Don't get me wrong...Chevy has plenty to be proud of. The new Camaro is wonderful...but let's face it, it's just like the original Camaro...a years-late response to the Mustang.

I don't know...the ads seem a little plastic to me. We tend to look back fondly, but those old cars were junk at 100,000 miles. Of course, they were easier to buy, but hitting a tree would kill you for sure.

It's like my Dad said once. "General Motors has been fooling the general public for years".

He also said, "If you ever buy anything but a Ford, or maybe a Chrysler, I'll kill you..."

They're from an e-mail I recieved, from a friend. Part of a post-bailout ad-campaign.

Now, see? Who's parents are they talking about? They're talking about my parents, who are both long dead. I'm 52. Are they trying to sell a Chevy to me? It ain't working, because the lingo they are using is applicable to people younger than me.

...and nobody who bought a new '57 Bel Air took it home and had their kids say "Hey, mom and dad, you sure are cool!"

'57 Chryslers were much more fantastic.

Sheesh.
