Part of my childhood in Twin Falls was filled with my mom, my grandma, even my babysitter yelling at the TV when the one and only Dave Campo would promote Latham Motors. If you grew up in the 80's, I am sure that you can relate.

Dave Campo left a mark on everyone as a television pitchman. He was featured in numerous cities and was a guest on The David Letterman Show.

Campo was known as the Car Sales Evangelist. He encouraged potential customers to "come on down" and somehow made us all remember a Twin Falls phone number.

Sadly, Dave Campo passed away in Twin Falls on September 9th 2011. KMVT featured an honorable YouTube tribute video after his death. The tribute includes his famous commercials and his visit on the Letterman show. It's worth the watch!

While Dave Campo lived in Twin Falls he was a  television pitchman for many different cities. This YouTube video features Campo in his true form in Fridley, MN.
