1986: Nissan Auster will stand by you

1 min read

The Japanese car industry — in fact, just about all Japanese industry — was riding high in 1986, when the soon-to-be-infamous Japanese Asset Price Bubble began to inflate more and more quickly. The 1986-1990 Nissan Violet line (which gave us the North American-market Stanza sedan) was split into several similar models for home-market consumption, with the Auster positioned as sportier than the Stanza.

This Japanese-market ad features Ben E. King's Stand By Me with shots of the new Auster intercut with images of a very mid-1980s-fashionable model. Is the ad suggesting that the Auster will impress the model, or is it suggesting that the Auster owner will become the model? We cannot say.
