My wife and I owned two Cordias back in the eighties. A 1984, and then we bought a new 1987. Nice handling car that gave us many miles trouble free.

Great little car in my opinion.

I was and still am more into jazz/R&B then I was into Mitsubishi commercials but do I recall the singer. Randy Crawford has a wonderful voice. She was somewhat popular in the aforementioned genre both here in the U.S. and in Europe beginning in the mid 70s. The song 'Street Life' which she sang with the jazz group 'The Crusaders' around 1979 or 1980 IIRC would probably be her most succesful release. She toured with them in Europe as well as being the 'Most Outstanding Performer' at the 1980 Tokyo Music Festival which is quite an achivement within her genre. That's likely how she caught the attention of whomever was responsible for the Mitsubishi commercial.
