How do you advertise a foreign entry-level car in the country that practically invented the entry-level car? Make the campaign bright, modern, and above all: fun!

Chrysler’s motors were perhaps the most over-engineered of the Big Three, which made it attractive to several European brands from France, Switzerland, and the UK. Of the bunch, the most popular of these hybrids was the Jensen Interceptor—not only did it have 440 power, but it also was the only hybrid to ever utilize Six Pack carburetion.

After attending the inaugural Australian ROA (Riviera Owners Association) Meet in Coffs Harbour in 2010 I fell in love with the first gen Riviera.

My father cut out an ad in the local newspaper (I know right, not craigslist?) and advertising this 1000. I did a little research and knew it was something special, it had spent half its life in Steveston (about five minutes away from me).
