Greetings, readers. I was talking to Rebecca today trying to come up with a really good blog entry idea. I started to think about all the tv shows I’ve watched over the years and thought to myself what about my top ten favorite TV cars list? Breaking from my mini tradition, I am going to put them in order from least favorite to most favorite.
#10. The Monroe sister’s 1976 Ford Mustang Cobra in the series Charlie’s Angels. [Jill turned it over to her sister Kris after the first season when Farrah Fawcett left the show.
#9. Joe Friday’s Ford Fairlane from the second Dragnet series.
#8. Jim Rockford’s 1974 Pontiac Firebird Esprit from the Rockford Files series.
#7. Starsky’s Ford Torino from the show Starsky and Hutch.
#6. The Dukes of Hazzard General Lee. [From the tv show, not the movie.]
#5. Magnum P.I.‘s Ferrari 308 GTS.
#4. Burt Reynold’s black Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am. [This is the one car from a film, not a tv show, the 1977 movie Smokey and the Bandit.]
#3. The Green Hornet‘s Black Beauty, a 1965 Chrysler Imperial Crown.
#2. The Batmobile from the 1966 Batman series with Adam West. [The car, according to the internet, was listed as a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car; that model was never put into production as far as I know.]
#1. Steve McGarrett’s 1968 Mercury Parklane Brougham from the original Hawaii Five-O series. [In the pilot episode, a snazzy ’67 Mercury Marquis was used. The ’68 Parklane was reportedly damaged in a chase scene and was replaced with a newer Mercury model for start of the ’75 season.]
Rebecca and I will be doing more work on the new book tomorrow. I’m going to try my darndest to post another new entry on Sunday evening or Monday. Oh, by the way … Tuesday the 5th, MLB 13 The Show hits the stores. The countdown beginneth. I will be at our local GameStop at 9am.
