And yet, Kookie's Kar seldom appeared as part of the screenplay of any episodes, almost always limited (in my memory, and I religiously watched very episode, save for perhaps 2 or 3) of "77 Sunset Strip, on Friday nights.

Isn't Norm Grabowski credited with being 'The father of the T bucket" because of th 'Kookie' car?

It was in episode of Peter Gunn too.

Of course, to be truly accurate, Kookie's Kar (Norm Grabowski build) isn't quite a true "T-bucket"----that term being very much standard in referring to Model T roadsters.

Grabowski built his T using the forward half of a T touring car body--you can see the straight panels on the sides, on which the rear doors of the touring body were hinged.
