A huge thumbs up to Taco Bell for ptting an early Chevy in their latest ad. Look for the ad with the 5 guys doing a very lame rap for the Enchirito. At the end of the ad there is a closeup of a Taco Bell sticker in the back window of a vehicle, that as it speeds away, you can see is an early Chevy! Way Cool!

I'M GLAD TO HEAR SOME ONE ELSE NOTICED THE VINTAGE VAN INN THE ADD. MY KIDS ALL THINK ITS A JEEP WAGONER OR AN EARLY SUBURBAN, BUT I KNOW ITS A 67-70 CHEVY/GMC VAN, WITH A BIG DENT IN THE BACK LEFT DOOR AND A CARGO RACK ON THE ROOF. DO ANY OF YOU REMEMBER THE ADDS FOR THE NEW CHEVY ADVENTURE VANS?IT HAD AN OLD CHEVY CORVAIR VAN IN ITS ADD. ITS BECAUSE THE GENERATION THAT GREW UP WITH THESE OLD VANS AND THE GOOD ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC ARE THE ONES MAKING THESE NEW ADDS.

A few weeks ago, I added a new page with pics from both Taco Bell commercials featuring the van. Here's the page: www.vcvc.org/taco.html (http://www.vcvc.org/taco.html) As soon as I saw the commercial, I knew it was an early, so I waited up all night with the VCR ready to catch it again. In the process, I caught the second commercial too. http://www.vcvc.org/ubb/biggrin.gif

Hey smiley, get the VCR ready. There are 2 more taco bell commercials now and both show more of the van. One shows the guys at the drive-in window. The other shows them driving down the highway and stopping for a hitchiker.
Later,
Andy.

Bummer news! Taco Bell fired their ad agency, yes the ome that came up with the dog and more importantly, put an early Chevy in the ads. How this will affect the use of the van is unclear, but let's hope the van is the new direction T.B. is after!
