...Speed Racer in a Nissan 350ZX or a Supra if Toyota still made it. He was in a commercial for the VW GTi a few years ago.
How about Tony Soprano for the Escalade? He drives one in the HBO show. Silvio Dante has a Seville STS and Paulie Walnuts is alternately seen in an Eldorado and a DeVille. Phil Leotardo has a very tacky Lincoln Town Car. Tony B. was seen in a big 1975-76 Eldorado convertible.

Was one of the last episodes that neighbor "Steve" was in.
Was that Marcy's first or second husband? Every character and casted actor, including dog, was excellent. Writing was superb. Think they started running out of steam in last year. Wonder if anybody is selling DVD sets by year.
To keep this message on-topic, think that Marcy Darcy could do Mercedes commercials. Kelly could do Mustang convertible (with white interior) commercials. Thunderbird would be better, but not in production now.

Yep, you can get the show in season DVDs now.
And it was a fantastic show, it still just cracks me up.
I think Steve Rhodes had a MB named 'Klaus' - I am pretty sure I remember something about 3 series BMWs, and by the time Jefferson D'Arcy was around, they might have had a MB SL.
In an early episode, Peggy has her own car - a Pinto. There was an episode with the Bundys and a new ca. 1988 Mustang convert, too.
I remember Kelly doing an ad for the Allante.

How about Dr Evil doing a counter-ad to the VW "depimp your ride" ads where he crushes VW's

How about Sanford and Son doing ads for Ford Trucks?
#52 of 74 Bugatti Veyron

Any James Bond villain who owned large yacht and had good accent. He would appreciate the finer things.
For real people, Jay Leno or Michael Jordan would be fantastic spokespersons for Bugatti. Both could afford and like cars.
But, Bugatti really doesn't need hyping. There are people lined up to get one and Bugatti is supposedly (according to WSJ) very choosy about who they will "let" buy the car. Has to be a car guy (person).
