Favorite MTV video featuring an obscure car? | Video

https://www.youtube.com/embed/qbAab1hTxN4

Classic MTV featured plenty of cool cars, like the ones used in videos from ZZ Top, Whitesnake and Sammy Hagar. But we're not sure if we noticed this one back in the day: Chrissie Hynde escapes various pitfalls while wheeling a Reliant Scimitar SS1 in the video for The Pretenders’ “Don’t Get Me Wrong.”

So, whatcha got for other MTV videos featuring obscure cars?

In my mind the stars of this video are the cars

 

But I am not a depeche mode fan

The video was obviously based on The Avengers so you'd think they would have put her in one of the cars that Emma Peel drove, but I suppose they had to work in their budget and time schedule, and the Reliant was available.

The funny thing about this one is they try to pass off a very pedestrian car as some sort of exotic. Who can name the car? (I guess time has rendered them somewhat obscure.)

 

Great song/artist either way.

A stolen Rambler wagon to be percise.

Tough to beat Big Timers videos for sheer late 90s, early 00s "wanna be rich" rappers in their stock 97 Corvettes.  "Get Your Roll On" is a classic.
