This is non-technical but... Has anyone seen the auto parts TV commercial where a dog steals a radiator hose from under a car? The car in the garage looks like a frost lime (light green) 69 Chevelle. Its unusual to see a 30 year old Chevelle on TV so I thought I would post it.

I have seen the commercial, but never paid much attention to the car the guy was under, I thought it was red, I will pay more attention to the car next time I view that commercial.

Have you seen the commercial with the lady trying to start her car, the car cranks over but never starts and they are trying to sell batteries...remind me never to buy that brand! I hate the batteries that crank the motor and wont start the car!

I've seen that commercial for Advanced Auto Parts. I'll bet you they don't carry the lower hose, in any configuration, for a '69 Chevelle. AutoZone laughed at me when I wanted one for my '70 Chevelle.

your right,they probably dont have a lower hose for a 69,but I bet they have dog toys hanging right next to the fuzzy dice and back off floor mats!these stores never have what you need.maybe they should spend more money stocking older car parts,rather than these whitty commercials.have a good one all.67rat member #199

Don't know about where you live, but here in So. Ohio the Advance Auto store is about the best around. Best prices, name brands, some hi-perf parts, counter people that know something and if they don't they'll get a guy that does. I buy a lot off them, too much lately. Wouldn't be surprised if they did have that hose. tom

It is a 69 Malibu or El Camino. Not an SS. Can tell by the chrome strip that down the front of the fender.
Noticed it right away.

ps. I own a dog just like that one.

here in central p.a. the advance closest to me is bad! they did not have a water pump for a 86 grand prix,did not have brake lining for my 62 chev 1 ton 4x4,did not have axle bearings for a thunderchicken I worked on,did not have redline water wetter,did not have vacumm advance for a 73 olds 350.and so on.1bads72,you must manage one of the better advance autos,the one here is lame,they are not all bad,guess the one here ticked me off,after standing in line for 35 min-the guy at the counter fought with me over a part fitting,told him just sell it to me,if it dont fit ,I wont be back. well it did fit,and I did not go back,ever.which is sad,Ill drive past them to go to napa now.this does not mean all advance autos suck,I just live near a bad example.good day 67rat member #199

Around here we used to have a rear good place for regular parts at good prices place called keyline. Carquest bought them out and now i will not go there unless i need somthing real bad and no one else is open cuz I was there to buy some tranny fluid one day and they wouldn't serve me i was only one in the store they were to buizzy talking on the phone. We had to finally say "Can I please get served????" so finally someone came and rung it all up but we were sitting at the cash for a while waiting. For high performance parts i go to Witrack that place is the cat's ass. My dad knows the owner so he will honestly tell us good things and bad things about a product. I have gotten my holley 650 double pumper, B&M shifter, wires oil pan..... and the list goes on from there
Semms like when big company took over the keyline store everyone got stupid about car parts. I think to sell the parts you should have good knowledge about cars. well just wanted to say that

Its been a while since I have seen the commercial but I seem to remember seeing just the very bottom edge of the side marker which would make it a 68, but I am not at all positive about this. I have a 68 so it might have just been wishful thinking.

Anybody seen the commercial for "WebMD"..?? The one where two old muscle cars go off a cliff and basically JUMP the grand canyon. The one on the left I believe to be a GTO convert, the white on on the right is either a 71/72 Chevelle Convert. Watch for it.
