Cop shows… I love them. As a kid we’d sit in front of the television and watch every type of cop and P.I. show that we could affix our adolescent eyeballs on. Shows like Magnum P.I., Starsky and Hutch and Simon and Simon made us, as kids want to be private investigators. Not only did these shows fill our TV sets with action, but the late 1970s and 1980s were the heyday for the hero car on television. Hell, there’s even a show on this list that’s on TV right now. The Ferrari Testarossa from Miami Vice, the 1976 Ford Torino from Starsky and Hutch and the 1982 Trans Am from Knight Rider all helped set this guy on a lifelong path that would be filled with automobiles. Below is a list of 10 amazing TV shows whose main star was of the four wheeled kind. Obviously some of you out there may be a little young to remember these, but after reading this, do yourselves a favor and look them up. You’ll be glad you did!

    How did ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ get omitted from this list? While I may disagree with the rebel flag emblem on the top, the show is a classic as is the 1969 Dodge Charger it featured.

  2. I think each of these feature on my installation. There’s even a General Lee on their as well as plenty of film cars.

    1995 dodge ram extended cab with roll bar. Walker Texas Ranger always needed a good truck. GMC before that I think

  4. Scott says:

    Wait a minute! The BMW from Moonlighting gets in the list but not the General Lee??? How about the Manta Montage from Hardcastle and McCormick? Maybe the Mustang from Spencer for Hire?

    What about Ray’s black ’65 Stingray Corvette from “Stingray”?

  6. Don says:

    Definitely the “coyote” from Hardcastle and Mccormick.

  7. al says:

    Don’t forget the ’57 T Bird from Vegas

  8. Scott says:

    Let us not forget “Scarecrow, and Mrs. King”, which brought us the newly restyled 1984 Corvette being flogged on the streets of Northern VA, and Washington, DC…..
