SX4 in Prilosec OTC commercial?
« on: July 29, 2012, 08:45:37 PM »
There's a new commercial on TV for Prilosec OTC with Larry The Cable Guy and he's driving what looks like either an SX4 or a Maverick. Couldn't get a good look at the car as they didn't show the entire vehicle, just a side shot from midway up the door and up but the car is present thru the whole commercial.

Anybody else catch it? I did notice a big round reflector on the LR QP which got me thinking possibly SX4 and not a Concord.

Definitely not an AMC, it has no paddle door handle. I think it's a Pinto.

Good eyes! I've only seen that commercial once or twice, didn't even think of looking at the door handles.

I did a google image search and it was as close to the same color as the car in the ad

It's not an '80 because the rear hatch isn't all glass. I had 2 '80 Bobcats as well as some Pintos (including a '70 with 1.6L and 5 speed that was a blast to drive but was the exploding model so my ex made me get rid of it for the kid's sake)
FOR SALE
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.

I was going by the side of the front bumper at 16 seconds. It's black. The 79-80's had black plastic ends. However, now that I study it, the whole bumper may have been painted black or they have 2 different year Pintos at 16 seconds and 27 seconds. I learned to drive in my dad's 79 Pinto Wagon and briefly owned an 80 Pinto wagon. It doesn't show in the pic, but it was a total rust bucket.

I had a 77 wagon and i loved that car until the neighbor vandalized it.  i once won a bet with a guy down the block who bet me 50 bucks my pinto was more areodynamic in the back rather than the front and didn't realize it was a wagon till i pulled it out of the garage  :rotfl:
