That Al Barnett did the damnedest things when he was working so loyally for Al Anthony all those years ago, didn't he???

Kudos to you, Al B., for all the great times you went out on-the-road for The California Tiger!

The bear promotion seems like it was part of a promotion to get folks to look at the 1967 models.

I remember going with my dad a few times in the early 1960's to follow the skylights in the skies and look at the new car models. Talk about cheap entertainment (as long as you didn't buy)!

And when was the last time you got interested enough to check out the new models the first week they came out? I betcha it was a long, long time ago in a car lot far, far away...
