      He is (or was now that he's almost 80) quite a tough guy.

      Jim Davis was a customer of my fatyer-in-law's business back in the day...along with another old cowboy actor named Reagan.
      Davis also starred in a late 50s TV show called Rescue 8....a pre-Emergency rescue show that was before my time.
      Not really, he had small man complex, a friend build his home in the California mountains and Conrad took him for over $100,000.00 on the deal friend lost his house paying off the lumber bill and extras, I was in the house just after he finished it and hanging on the large stone fireplace was his own picture of him in Centennial, picture also made him look like a big man but he wasn't then and still is not. tough guy ? he wanted every one to think he was. SOB is what is was and is.

            YOU are funny, Frank. In 1956, I was ten years old....but was involved with a new 1956 Hawk....this very 1956 Golden Hawk in which I sat and smelled the new leather at my Dad's dealership before it was delivered to the original owner:

                  Well, Carl, I hope not too many bricks fell on the Rambler when that building was razed about five years ago.

                  'Sorry to say, here is a 2011 photograph taken from exactly the same vantage point as the earlier photo with the Cross Country along side. In this photo, you see the north end of the curb cut for the drive to the used car lot that was on the north side of the building. (In the earlier photo, you see the south side of that same curb cut):

                    yep, no doubt it's Jim Davis.

                    i watched "Rescue 8" in the early '60's (reruns, i think). i have also watched all of the "Dallas" episodes, TV movies and the reboot on TNT. the only "soap opera" type of show i'll admit to watching...

                      I watched an episode of Bonanza yesterday. Jim was in Virginia City playing a crooked Horse trader trying to beat Ben and Hoss out of a string of Horses.

                        I also had a driver's license in August 1955, but I have no interest in owning that Cross Country.

                          Solid 'Cambridge Grey' probably isn't the most flattering color for a 56J...but it IS always nice to see a car brought back to 'as built' (or at least 'as delivered'!)

                            I first saw Jim Davis in the TV series, Stories of the Century, which was the first western to win an Emmy. He could play both good and bad guys very well.
