Did Cal Worthington die, and someone forgot to tell him? Seriously? I had not seen any of his Worthington Dodge (or whatever) commercials for a while and I thought he died a long time ago, but tonight I've seen a few (they keep playing it over and over) and it looks like they're propping him up in front of the camera and moving his mouth with strings! Poor old Cal looks like he needs to be in a nursing home..Not selling used cars..
any of the southern california "old timers" probably remember back in the '70's when Cal Worthington would "beat any deal, or I'll eat a bug" ...
