      I remember that from our Chevy Celebrity growing up too.

      I believe those pedals said "disc brakes" or "4 wheels disc brakes"

      Japanese advertisements loooove to use CA license plates. They usually don't use actual used plates but replicas that are usually out of sequence.

      Has anybody mentioned the Mexican market Chevrolet Century SS?
      Nope?



      or the better-known Chevrolet Cutlass Eurosport:


      AN interesting thing about these & all of the Mexican Celebrities....a ton of them were manual transmission cars....a very rare option here in the states
      You can see the shifter in this picture from the brochure:

      I was actually thinking of starting a thread on "celebrities in JDM car commercials" after posting that. You're welcome to do it, though .

      Here in the US we only got a 5-speed v-6 A-bodies in 1987 & 88. They are VERY rare. In Mexico a lot of the Cutlass Eurosports were 5-speed v-6's. I am not sure about the earlier cars though.

      We already covered all these a couple of pages back... and no, those are not 1st and 2nd gen Ford Laser. They are 4th and 5th gen Laser. But thanks for bumping the thread

      The VW Polo Playa, a South African straight rebadge of the Ibiza.

      Not exactly a looker...
