Cal Worthington net worth: Cal Worthington is an American car dealer who has a net worth of $20 million dollars. Cal Worthington was born in Shidler, Oklahoma, and grew up very poor. He dropped out of school to work in his early teens, and then went on to enlist in the Army Air Corps. His military service is widely documented, as he trained some of the first astronauts. He began selling used cars after returning to Texas, and subsequently moved to California, where he opened his first Hudson Motor car dealership. He became one of the first businesses to advertise on television, and bought huge blocks of advertising during nighttime movie airings.

He became somewhat of a pop culture icon. He passed away September 8, 2013.
Calvin Coolidge "Cal" Worthington (November 27, 1920 ??? September 8, 2013) was an American car dealer, best known on the West Coast of the United States, and to a more limited extent elsewhere, from minor appearances and parodies in a number of movies. He was best known for his unique radio and television advertisements for the Worthington Dealership Group. In these advertisements, he was usually joined by "his dog Spot," except that "Spot" was never a dog. Often, Spot was either a tiger, a seal, an elephant, a chimpanzee, or a bear. In one ad, "Spot" was a hippopotamus, which Worthington rode in the commercial. On some occasions, "Spot" was a vehicle, such as an airplane that Worthington would be seen standing atop the wings of while airborne. "Spot" was officially retired in the mid-1980s; however he was mentioned occasionally in his later commercials.
According to a profile published in the Sacramento Bee in 1990, Worthington grossed $316.8 million in 1988, making him at the time the largest single owner of a car dealership chain. His advertising agency, named Spot Advertising, had Worthington as its only client and spent $15 million on commercials, the most of any auto dealer at the time. He sold automobiles from 1945 until his death and owned a 24,000-acre (9,700 ha; 37 sq mi) ranch located in Orland, California, north of Sacramento.
Calvin Coolidge Worthington was born on November 27, 1920 in Shidler, Oklahoma (one source names the defunct town of Bly, Oklahoma), three weeks after his namesake, Calvin Coolidge, had been elected Vice President of the United States. Worthington grew up in grinding poverty, one of nine children, and dropped out of school at the age of 13. His first job was as a water boy on a road construction crew for 15 cents an hour. He joined the Civilian Conservation Corps at age 15.
At the beginning of World War II, Worthington enlisted in the Army Air Corps. Commissioned a Second Lieutenant, he was the aerobatics champion at Good
