TV Cars of the 1960’s – Mannix

Alrighty—

You probably already
figured out this post
is part two of our
TV Cars series that
we started a
couple weeks ago.

Yep.

If you missed
Part One, well <— .

Today, we’re looking
at more ‘ action cars ‘ –
– you know, the cars
the tough guys like
‘Mannix’ drove.

Actually, Mannix
was on TV quite
a while, from 1967
to 1975 –

– and they used different
models for most seasons,
although overwhelmingly
Mopar for most of the
show’s run.

But, the first year
used a 1967 Oldsmobile
Toronado Convertible.

And no, GM didn’t
produce a 67 Toronado
drop-top –
– it was a one of a kind,
customized by George
Barris for the show.

Another Barris
customization job
was done for season
two and three :

1968/69 Dodge Dart
340 GTS rag-tops –
in a non-stock color,
British Racing Green.

The functional hood
scoop, rear spoiler,
mag wheels,
and a lot of other stuff
wasn’t stock, either .

But it was a hot
looking car, right ?

Season four and five’s car
was a 1970/1971 Plymouth
Cuda 340 in dark green.

(In season five, the 340
was alternated with
another Cuda with a
383 c.i.)

Season six was
still a Cuda –
the 1971’s updated
with ’73(?) trim –
since the car had
been discontinued by then.

Season seven:
1974 Dodge
Challenger 360
Rallye’s,
with added
mag wheels
and tires was used –

— and the car was mainly
stock (although it was
equipped with every
possible option including
the factory sunroof ).

The last year, 1975, brought
a change in the car brand
used by the TV production
company, so the show
rotated a 1974 blue
Chevy Camaro LT hardtop
with a 1975 Caprice
Convertible.

(HUH?)

(That was the last year
for the rag-top Caprice.)

But, there are also
traces of a green
1974 Gran Torino
in several episodes
in season eight.

By far- the Toronado
and the Dart GTS
were the coolest, man.

And Now For Something Completely German

Dear Fellow Fan
of Monty Python:

You’re probably
not going to
believe it
when I tell you this,
but there really was
a Monty Python series
done for German TV :

It was called :
” Monty Python’s
Fliegender Zirkus ” .

Now, I know you
might be thinking
this is one of my
sick jokes —

— that it could be
possible that you
may not have seen
every Monty Python
episode ever made —

( hey,
that’s what I thought ) –

well, it’s impossible ,
right?

Hey,
I feel ya, man.

The fact that now,
you have 90 minutes
of material to
memorize at rote –
– IN GERMAN –
in order for you to
keep your
Python Fanatic
status once all your
friends find out ..

.. I guess we don’t
really need to tell em,
but we’ll have to keep
this between us.

Well,
us and YouTube,
that is.

You might want to
bring along your
naughty Hungarian
to English phrasebook,
even though it’ll be of
very little help.

Still, better
underhung
than overwhelmed.

Umm… yes.

Anyhoo……
Here,
meine lieben
Damen und Herren,
is the first
and second
shows of : 

“Monty Python’s
Fliegender Zirkus “

— brought to you
through the miracle
of the internet.

Ich hoffe du
genießt es !!
