Darth Vader wants to put you in a new Chevrolet!

Thomas Berry sent me this wonderful flashback to add to the Superhero Mall Appearance Gallery. It's the Lord of the Sith himself at Joe Romania Cherolet Dealership in Eugene, Oregon back in October 1978. Thomas also mentions a Jawa but he seems to be camera shy.

Thomas tells me he keeps these photos in a 1978 edition Vol 1 of the Funk & Wagnalls New Encyclopedia. Which he bought for $.09, at the old Safeway in Springfield OR, the same day he saw Darth.
