Falcon TV Commercials

Ok, this is a bit of a silly question, but me and a couple of mates have remembered an old Ford commercial slogan

"Have you driven a Ford.....lately?"

can any one remember what model (and years) Falcon this slogan was based on?

A mate thinks it was ED, but I'm thinking EF/L as I'm sure the AU's "Live It" was the next one. It only feels like yesterday, so if it's ED, I'm gonna feel really old...........

Cheers.

Re: Falcon TV Commercials

Yeah, definatley one of the E series. AU was "live it". BA was "no boundaries" and the BF seems to be "new territory".

If it were Holden I'd say it was childish crap, but it's Ford, so it's good

Started with the EB falcon in 1992 if my memory serves me correctly. In fact I still have some of the original promo stickers somewhere.
