Top 10 TV car ads of the past 25 years
New York-based ad organization The One Show picks the best of the best.
In general, they're annoying, but a really good car commercial can get a car nut's heart racing, office drones talking at the water cooler and Facebook folks "liking" it by the thousands. At the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, an advertising competition known as The One Show presented its top 10 TV car commercials of the past 25 years. The winners were chosen from a list of One Show winners of the past 25 years, plus ads nominated by a panel of 75 judges composed mainly of ad-agency creative directors. Here we present those winners in order from No. 10 to No. 1, plus a Public Choice Winner determined by online voting. To see all 60 nominees, visit oneclub.org.

I told you so!
Can't get the JEEP ad to work. It just shows the VW ad.....
Without the Nissan Maxima Top Gun pigeon commercial, this list is bogus.
WTH? No Joe Isuzu? My favorite of all time has been the Crysler Cordoba, with Corintian Leather.
Also, what about that superbowl ad where they were going through time and the Myan temple!
