Go see Cal, in heaven

Cal Worthington was an American legend, a car dealer, country music promoter and friend of critters large and small.

He bought Key Chevrolet in Cupertino, in 1988, then sold it to Jerry Davidson in the early nineties. It was his first Bay Area dealership, but reportedly one of his few disappointments in that business.

The video above is from his Sacramento store from the same era.

The New York Times reported his passing Sunday at age 92.

As someone who has worked in advertising, music and the car business, I must surely acknowledge the anxiety of his influence.
