Route 66 Corvair Commercial (1960)

Dig this, Route 66 fans! This is a commercial from Season 1 of Route 66. I love the elegance of these commercials. They're simple and beautifully made. This one is for the Chevrolet Corvair Lakewood Station Wagon and the 700 Corvair Coupe. Sure, the slogan "Greatest Show on Worth" is as corny as it gets. Sure, Ralph Nader later exposed the Corvair as a dangerous vehicle in his 1965 tome Unsafe at Any Speed. But I still love these commercials and I'm touched by their innocence and ethereal quality. Have a look, Route 66 fans, and see if you agree with me.
