The digitized Los Angeles Times is now up to mid-1968. No surprises so far.
About ten more years and I'll have what I want.

"Would you buy a used car from this man?" is not in the American Heritage
Dictionary of American Quotations. Fred Shapiro probably has this, from  both
the LA Times and NY Times.

For all these reasons, the Democrats in Los Angeles are full of doubts.  They
are unified in their dislike and distrust of Nixon. The most popular joke  of
the convention among the Democrats is one of those glowering pictures of
Nixon, with a caption reading: "Would you buy a used car from this man?"
