I bought a 1967 GTA mustang convertible in Monrovia California in 1982 it was in a showroom, it drew me in. I wish I could remember the name of the place,it was on Foothill drive. The Mustang was in company with RR’s, Bentley’s etc. I just had to have it, so I bought it.
They told me that it was owned by a comedian that worked in Las. Vegas. I took all the papers that came with the car and the paper that he signed and left with the car and drove it back to Windsor Ontario Canada.
Fast forward to just a few years ago I was going thru the papers for the car and saw his name so I got on Facebook put his name in and his name popped up.
Turns out he was Discovered by Cary Grant at the Magic Castle in Hollywood California who got him a act on the Ed Sullivan show, from there he spent the biggest portion of his career in Las Vegas, about 20 years.
I found that he retired and lives in Florida. I found out were he lives, did some more work, got his phone, gave him a call, and because I was in Florida at the time, called him and I drove to his place and had lunch.
The people he meet like Lucille Ball, Sammy Davis Jr. etc, and the stories he can tell.
As a side note I got the Mati Report on the car. Turns out the Mustang was a Marketing car for Ford Motor Co.
