Oh, more on topic, about any of the cars from "Bewitched" over its run could be cool.I know Darren drove a convertible, either Camaro or Chevelle, and I believe Larry Tate drove an Impala convertible.

Larry Tate drove Corvettes in a lot of episodes.

"My sister and I get each other prank presents.  One year she gave me a pair of Barbie size man dolls that she got at the Dollar Store.  One was white, the other black... but they had faces like mean felons.  Little kids would be afraid of these dolls. We couldn't stop laughing.   Figure that this was some Chinese designer's idea of what Americans looked like."  

 

 

Sounds hilarious - my friends and I enjoy browsing places like that for the misfit toys! C'mon - pictures, man!!

 

 

Sorry to say these are long gone.  Otherwise I would've included photos....  they'd make good Barbie community mug shots!

Don't know if this has been mentioned yet but how about a Volvo P1800 from The Saint?

That would be cool!  How about Patrick Jane's Citroen from "The Mentalist"?  Quirky, non?

I would love to see some models of the cars the guys drive on british top gear greatest show ever

Its popular all over the world, had been filmed in my local city for some parts.

Anyway whats that about the Revell Crown Vic snap tite?  seems a total waste of time, esp as the Lindberg is still around


a 74 Monaco like seen on CHiPs etc would be nice

The Winchester boys Chevy would be nice.


+10 on this! Dean Winchester's 1967 Impala from Supernatural would be killer. Just make sure it's 4 door, has the correct wheels, and a false trunk full of weapons!
Also, I'd like to see Jon Voight's LeBaron from Seinfelt, complete with teeth marks. Or maybe Krammer's Caprice with the... ahem..."buttman" license plate on it. Lol.
See ya at the finish line,
Jeff

How about a Checker cab like those seen in Taxi and so many other TV shows? Naturally, I'd want one that could be built as a stock non taxi/Maraton version also.

Scott

I'd seriously buy a fleet of those.

In an old episode of "Secret Agent" with Patrick McGoohan he was being driven in an early 50s SAAB 92. I would love a kit of that. I expect the silence to be deafening regarding that wish!

I'd buy one just because it's weird. I like the 96s, too, I'd love to see a 96 wagon.

Great news to hear that we will be getting a Starsky and Hutch Torino eventually, I thought that we would have had one years ago!!
On the subject of cars we would like to see released, I remember watching a series called 'Due South' and the one character drove a green '71Buick Boattail Riviera. That one would probably sell I think. And what about any 80's four door sedan, Ford LTD, Chevrolet Caprice/Impala, Dodge St Regis/Diplomat? Most were used in police series in one form or another so a few of them would be nice.

All of the above.

 

And I'd like a P1800, too. Beautiful car.

Krammer had a 73 Impala not a Caprice, until later episodes then he had a 87-90 Caprice.

If anyone remembers a show called "Ironside" with Raymond Burr, he was in a wheelchair & had an old '40's paddy wagon set up for him to travel around in.  I don't recall the make but it was pretty cool.  If we're talking movie cars; "Jeepers Creepers" '41 (?) chevy cabover straight truck or "The Car" custom Lincoln Continental by Barris.

The only vehicle I remember from Ironside was the Ford van, which was offered as a kit by MPC back in the day.

I agree, the paddy wagon would be pretty cool, especially with options to build either an as-intended vehicle or modified into Ironside's rolling office with the phone, desk, lift and what I remember seeing in the premier movie as the mechanic describing as a "supercharged" V8- quite possible a Y-block or FE with a blower ended up being installed.

 

It was wrecked about season 2 or 3, and then he got the Econoline.
