Fly HIGH Shiny! For those that read My Dog Spot will understand that nickname. Hearing Cal had passed on brought back bitter-sweet memories of my father passing some years back. My family started with Cal when he took over Ralph Williams Ford, the rest is history.
In 75 I started @ Dodge store in South Gate and then Huntington Beach helping with commercials for CW and redlining vehicles. My first car, 65 Mustang that was taken in on trade. My father Ivan Smith ran Fleet in LB, was GM Federal Way (Cheryl (Huwe) Hicks) you probably served my father also, Anchorage then back to LB shortly after my dad left the organization. I know Cal was saddened my father left and gave him sage advice. However they still kept in touch as I did going by the Ford Store seeing people I grew up around.
Fact is CW was a great man, I would rank him close to Henry Ford for ingenuity. Funny moments, first gift I got for Christmas @ Rochelles in LB, a bag of Nuts.. “Nuts to you from Cal and Sue”. Cal, now are flying hirer than you ever dreamed of with a different set of wings. I would also like to give tribute to others that had the privilege to work and learn from Cal. My father Ivan Smith, Richard Johnson, Eddy McAdams, L.D. Crabtree, Phil Love, Jerry Hansink, Larry Mann and many others. For those that have left us, no fighting over the next “up” Those still here with fond memories, tip your hat to the man that changed the car business."
