Pickup trucks are usually the featured vehicles of hard luck tales put to music, but in this case of this vintage commercial it's a 1973 Mazda RX3 wagon.


Things seem great for this Mazda owner when he is happily cruising down the road with his lady friend enjoying the pogo stick sounds of his rotary engine. It isn't long however before disaster strikes and his lady friend turns into a lady car thief mid-picnic. Worst of all, even after they are both gone the pogo stick sound of his RX3 continues to haunt this former Mazda owner.

We've seen more than our share of bizarre vintage automotive advertising, but this one definitely wins the title of strangest message to send to potential customers—


"Buy our car, it's so good your girlfriend will leave and take it with her"
