Derron Wright @dragnut's 32 from a Valvoline commercial
Maxwell Smarts Sunbeam Tiger
Columbo's ratty, Borgward Isabella convertible.

Thanks to @40two for spoting the error!
Can't forget the......
James Dean in Giant.
Paul Newman's Caddy convertible from the film HUD.
Life of Riley……..
One of my all time favorites.
From Longmire TV series, it's a Jimmy.
How in the hell did I not know this! Very cool!
One of my favorites, no surprise since I'm so crazy about '46-'48 Ford, is Phil Silvers' aka, Otto Meyer's convertible. They used two different year of cars for his scenes.
No photo from me but the local Stater Bros Markets used a few nice hot rods in there commercials in the LA area.
Used to include a red 40/41 pickup. IIRC one of the Stater Bros. big wigs ended up buying the truck used in the commercials.
Thought Columbo drove a Peugeot. O/T for here, but still unusual they used that car in the series, except to show how eccentric he was. Only car i've ever ridden in with a 4 speed column shifter.
Leave it to Beaver with Fords, then the latest and greatest Mopars. Highway Patrol, too, equal opportunity car placement, Buicks, Fords, Mopars, etc.
Wow Danny @HOTRODPRIMER ...You outdid yourself this time (At least for me anyway)!
Most all of the ones I would have posted have already been done & MANY on this thread shaped my idea of what I love in the cars I want! In fact two are still on my bucket list to this day ( The Saint'sP1800 Volvo & the late 50's Chrysler/Desoto Christine)
Question as I cannot find it anywhere! Mid/Late 60's (I was probably 6-8 years old) a detective show that featured a woman detective ( I thought it was Ann Margret, but can't find anything linking her to it) she had a male sidekick & drove some type of roadster..Maybe Jag, MG. Again memories from that far back are fuzzy! Any help with the name of the show & what car she drove???
I know the Batmobile was already mentioned, but being a transporter, I get to be around & move a bunch of cool sh!t. This is me a few years back in one of the 4 original ones built by George!
James Dean's Mercury in, "Rebel without a Cause". HRP
"Honey West" Honey West (TV Series 1965–1966) - IMDb
Yeah, Honey West featuring Anne Francis and a 289 powered 1964 AC Cobra , the show lasted one season. HRP
Thank You @Just Gary & @HOTRODPRIMER !
I got my "Ann's" mixed up! I recognize the mole
1940 Ford DeLuxe convertible used on "Leave it to Beaver". HRP
Eddie and the Beave liked cool cars.
How about Greg Brady's first car? 1956 Chevy convertible
Jack Benny's Maxwell
I agreed with Greg's old man... That car is a piece of junk!.. And I like tri 5 chevys..
Two pages in and no one has mentioned The California Kid?
I don't know if it was on TV or not but it should have been!
