A low-budget ad like this one- which seems to have been filmed on a budget that even Cal Worthington would have found unacceptably restrictive- makes the '88 Subarus seem somehow endearing , especially when compared to the super-slick Subaru ads we get nowadays. Of course, it's hard to beat the "Cheap Ugly Su-BAR-u" ads of '69 in the cheapness department, but you need to step up the production values when your engines go from two strokes to four.
