Question for you all..
What is your favorite automotive saying? (or slogan)
Given the opportunity to make up a new “catch phrase” or slogan for any auto maker, what would yours be? What is your current favorite? Why? This question was recently asked by Jaguar North America with the winner receiving a new Jag. Sorry, no car this time… Lets see those ideas!

"Porsche - There is No Substitute". Not really memorable from commercials or anything, but it was a great Tom Cruise line from "Risky Business"! ::

The current Cadillac commercials (Been a Long Time Since I Rock n Rolled) are the BEST!

My uncle moved to Australia and got a job at the Ford Factory.
His first day, he goes in, and his boss shows him where he'll be working (basic assembly line stuff). He gets to work.
About 5 minutes of working, and the break bell rings.
~~Everyone in the factory, leaves their post, walks out of the factory. My uncle is perplexed, and goes out to see what is happening. He sees all the employees walk out into the nearby forest, picking up koala bear hairs, and bring them back into the plant, and make tea of their collection.
This lasts for about 25 minutes.
Break bell rings again. Everyone goes back to work.
5 minutes later, break bell rings again.
Then the same thing happens.
~~Everyone in the factory, leaves their post, walks out of the factory. All the employees walk out into the nearby forest, picking up koala bear hairs, and bring them back into the plant, and make tea of their collection.
Again, this lasts for about 25 minutes.
Break bell rings again. Everyone goes back to work.
5 minutes later!, break bell rings ~~again!.
~~Everyone in the factory, leaves their post, walks out of the factory. All the employees walk out into the nearby forest, pick up koala bear hairs, bring them back into the plant, and make tea of their collection.

My uncle is just as confused as he can be. He finally goes up to his boss and asks:
"Hey Bossman, why does everyone only work for 5 minutes, then spend 25 minutes going out into the forest to pick up koala bear hairs, and then make tea out of them.".

The bossman looks at him with just about the same perplexed look as my uncle had, and says:
"Because..... at Ford , Koala-Tea is Job One ! "


....

Thus my favorite automotive slogan.

Porsche - Kills bugs fast.

"WTF is that noise?" uttered by an associate seconds before his VW motor seized after dropping a valve.

Music's great in the Cadillac ads, but the cars, particularly the Excrementalade, are butt fugly! Ford has changed their slogan many times. At one time "There'a A Ford In Your Future." The classic Packard Ad: "Ask The Man Who Owns Once". Many of the current ads are quite clever but also easy to parody. Like a Slug! Like the Mazda kid, whispering Ca Ca! ::

Anyone remember this one from a Ford ad in 1968?

"Cobras eat Roadrunners for breakfast" ::

Due to complaints from the dark side, the ad was pulled off the air after about a month. It was a takeoff on the old roadrunner-coyote cartoons.
