Back in 1968, comedian and talk show host Dick Cavett underwent an experimental procedure where his consciousness was temporarily implanted into a 1961 Glas Isar while his body was being renovated in preparation for his new ABC talk show. The network scheduled a stand-up tour while he was a car, and plenty of live appearances, which this poster was promoting. He remains the only entertainer to have undergone the procedure.
