Real-Life Wacky Racers

Do you remember the Wacky Races cartoon show? If not, here’s the opening, that shows all the various drivers and their odd concept cars.

Now, check out this ad for the Peugeot 208, with real-life versions of a lot of the same vehicles. We didn’t get the lumberjack and the beaver or the hillbilly and the bear — animals are hard to work with — but I’m astounded at all the others.

That’s not my favorite recent nostalgia car ad, though. That title goes to AutoTrader reuniting the Duke boys (John Schneider and Tom Wopat) and the General Lee with plenty of car chases and jumps.
