I sold cars for a living for over forty years. My very Pig riding hippie car peace love and cure shirt first sale happened on my second day at the Chrysler/Plymouth dealership that I worked at in Tacoma, Washington in 1971. There were two desks near the front door of the showroom and the salesperson who was”up” sat at the first desk and the salesperson who was “up” next sat at the second desk. If we got up to so much as get a cup of coffee or use the restroom, we lost our spot in the rotation and it might take another day to get to the “up” position again. The salesman ahead of me was a crusty sixty year old guy named Frank Gillahan who was on the Tacoma School Board and sold a lot of cars to teachers. I was twenty-two years old and had just returned from two years service in the U.S. Army with a tour in South East Asia.

Best Pig riding hippie car peace love and cure shirt
Outside a car pulled up in the Pig riding hippie car peace love and cure shirt parking lot of the dealership and out stepped three young hippie looking people with bell-bottom pants, Beatle boots, flowered shirts and long hair. The woman among them wore a leather jacket with long leather fringe hanging from the sleeves. They definitely looked the part of the hippie community of the early 1970′s. Frank turned to me and said “Hippies, I hate hippies. They are a waste of time. They are more your age. You take ‘em.” My heart began to race. Not only was I about to take my very first up as a car salesperson, but I also knew who these people were.
