 Toyota Corona

I'm going back pretty far, but as I recall the opening shot scanned along the top of the Monster as the commercial opened. I don't believe Art A. was actually shown, so I don't know who, exactly, was driving -- I assume it was Art.
The sound was the Corona (not a Corolla) putt-putted off, the Monster's roar is rising to a scream, then, BAM, it explodes off the line and disappears into the distance while the Corona crew claimed victory. I'd love to get my hands on a copy of that.

Good luck with the file and with your site,
