This ones pretty good - BA GT. The ending is great too

It's crazy how they can go from this, to not a single thing for the FG GT

Lol! Bloody brilliant ad. This is what Ford needs to go back too. IMHO the current suite of ad's I see on pay and free to air media outlets are just rubbish. Thanks for finding and sharing this one!

Cheers, Brent

It's a pity that the product at the time was a dud (EA Falcon).
It's ironic that it's now the complete opposite - Ford makes a good product but their advertising is absolutely disgraceful.
Right in the feels. Childhood memories. I remember riding in an EB2 Falcon , brand new and putting a cassette that had this song in the automatic tape deck. . Then a common sight would be a big blue truck transporting New Ford Vehicles around Melbourne, sporting "Have you driven a Ford... Lately?" in huge white letters across the side. Screw the future, someone build a time machine and repeat the late 80s to mid 90s in Australia for eternity, that would be heaven

One of the best Falcon Ads was the history of the Falcon GT going though the years. And ends with the BF 40th Anniversary GT in Black and Gold.

Some here might be able to find the Ad.

Can't seem to see it on youtube though?
Bit of a thread bump, but came across this ad on YT:

The “Can’t get enough of this” advert for the BA is definitely one of the best, but I’ve always loved the BF Fairmont Ghia advert.

https://youtu.be/9ml82n46oT8

The extended version is a little tacky, but the imagery is beautiful.

The best of Australian car ads:
https://www.whichcar.com.au/car-styl...ralian-car-ads

There's a couple of Ford ads in their list, but not a Falcon ad as such.
