Commerical time: Italian lion in Germany

Obviously Subaru named the Leone after the Leo constellation in the Zodiac and it was their best selling car for 23 years (when it got replaced by the Impreza). The name Leone came from the Italian word for Lion but strangely enough the commercial on TV showed this Italian named car in a German environment:

Maybe the Lion likes German roads better?

Commerical time: Long drive Skyline GC10

I think I posted a few of these commercials sometime before, but most of the videos have been removed from Youtube in the meantime. Hopefully these won’t disappear since they are not ripped from the DVD.

Even before the famous Ken and Mary C110 commercials Nissan was marketing the Skyline to be the car for the young and sporty couples, including the G18 Skyline GC10 deluxe around 9:08. Funny how his beret changes into a hat within a few seconds…

Don’t be fooled by the first commercial: that’s a model from the previous S50 generation Skyline.

Mental note: If I ever buy a Skyline C10 I’ll definitely have to buy a beret as well!
