1985: Driving the new Toyota MR2 is like being the ball in a pinball machine

In 1985, American car shoppers could choose between three affordable mid-engined two-seaters: the Pontiac Fiero, the Bertone X1/9 (imported by Malcolm Bricklin with Bertone badging after Fiat gave up on North America in 1982), and the Toyota MR2. Of the three, the MR2 was the one that made the most sense as an everyday commuter car… which must be why Toyota created ads like this one, emphasizing the fun of the car. Watch the 1970s-esque driver, in his aviator shades and discostache, navigate the playfield of the MR2 pinball machine in his MR2, avoiding the pop bumpers and flippers on the way to the drain.

Meanwhile, in Japan, the MR2 provided “The Most Innovatory Value” in its homeland.
