    This brings back and memories for me as I was relatively new to Los Angeles and these Earl Sheib commercials for getting your car painted for less than it would cost to buy the paint and do it yourself were all over local TV. I bought a used 1963 gold Caddilac for $150 and drove it straight to Scheib to see if they could hit it with gold sparkle paint. But, alas, Earl Scheib’s $49.95 deals, later escalated to the still bargain $99.99, only covered standard colors. But I still love guys like Sheib and Cal Worthington for being exceptionally early in the independent-entrepreneur-turned-TV-spokesman days of commercial television.

    I absolutely remember your voice because I loved those talking lips.
