As many times I have seen Used Cars, I never noticed the cameo of
Dick Miller (who is in bed with woman), who went on to appear in many

due to its continuous airing on cable television in the 1980s when that was
a new medium. All these years later, it hasn't lost one lick of its entertainment value.
This is a worthy Twilight Time purchase.
