Dark Lord of the 8 Track

Part two of the stereo store visit pictures from Francis shows him getting into a sticky situation with customer service. This is a pretty brilliant Darth Vader and Chewbacca appearance, there was much more home made versions running around....

I thought you might enjoy these pics from 1978. Back story: It was announced (I think in a newspaper ad) that Darth Vader and Chewbacca were both making an appearance at a local stereo/audio shop in Sacramento, California. My friend and I took the bus to the store and encountered the faux-Star Wars characters. I believe we were the only ones there to see Vader and Chewie. It looks like I enjoyed it nonetheless. 

Thanks again to Francis for these awesome snaps!

Oh for the days when a complete stranger could lay hands upon you, much less faux strangle you. I'm surprised they still allow kids to sit on Santa's lap!
