“Disappearing Trucks” starring John Callahan

A future star of All My Children, this was John Callahan’s first of several commercials for the Northern California Datsun Dealers. The group soon after changed its name to Northern California Nissan/Datsun Dealers to get viewers used to the brand name change. The spot was produced by Burlingame advertising executive Gene Bell. It was directed by Rich Yacco, staff producer/director for Bay Area Interconnect (BAI) Productions, San Jose. San Jose Datsun provided the location in the early 1980s.
