Victory in search for Auto Wreckers

Written by Adrian Holovaty on September 20, 2005

In my writeup about the Eagle Man commercial, I mentioned wanting a digitized version of the classic Victory Auto Wreckers commercial that has aired on Chicago TV since the early '80s. Well, whaddya know: It's available online!

And there's an excellent Sun-Times article all about the commercial.

Thanks to my friend Rob for these two treasures.
