Did you guys think it was "Pussy Cow" instead of "Go See Cal?"
I thought that's what he was saying when I was a kid.

Met him once. I used to do some business with his son Rod. Cal was a great guy. Was a man's man.

Hell, I didn't even know he was still alive. Yeah and I always thought he said "pussy cow" too, lol.

Gotta love that name, doesn't get more manlier than "Cal Worthington". RIP.

Totally thought it said 'pussy cow'. Thought I was the only one.

Check out my occasionally updated travel thread - The Wroclaw Gambit II: Dzięki Bogu - as I prepare to emigrate to Poland.

I remember his corny commercials that aired as a child. He had a dealership on the other side of town and set up a fire breathing dinosaur as an advertising gimmick. At 5 or 6 years old I thought it was the coolest thing ever.
