Photograph caption dated March 19, 1963 reads, "J. Eddie Bryan (center) of Sherman Oaks is ready to drive away the eighth new Buick purchased from 'Bones' Hamilton Buick in Van Nuys. With him are 'Bones' Hamilton (left) and Bob Stevenson, general sales manager. Bryan, who is a sales executive for Campbell Soups, says he has found Bruicks ideally suited for his transportation problems and that he is sold on both Buick as a car and 'Bones' Hamilton as a dealer. In turn, both Hamilton and Stevenson say they love the flavor of Campbell soups."
