Cal Worthington poses with his dog Spot - as he warmly referred to the tiger he used in his auto commercials - while being photographed in 1976 while serving as the Grand Marshall of the bicentennial parade in Orange County, Calif. Worthington, 92, made millions selling cars in California making a name for himself with his witty car commercials which were live on television starting in the 1950's.
