Plymouth Colt Vista Advertisement: Was its mother really a sportscar?

I remember seeing this advertisement in 1992 right after we bought our '92 Mitsubishi Expo LRV (the Plymouth Colt Vista's mechanical twin). I think it must've been a short-lived ad campaign, because I only remember seeing this ad a couple of times. However, I always remembered this slogan and always thought it was pretty cool.

The slogan was pretty appropriate, too. The Vista, one of Diamond Star Motors' (DSM, e.g. Mitsubishi and Chrysler) "tall wagon triplets," had a fully independent suspension, was fun to drive, yet could haul a bunch of stuff. See the link below (or any of the ones in the above text) to see more about the Plymouth Colt Vista.

Given the market that car was originally meant for, that ad could just as easily have simply stated;

"It's Mother"
