Cool Classic TV Cars Of The Day

A lineup of famous TV cars. Many of these are from 70s' shows, so you youngun's may not recognize as many as us old folks.

A car has always been an easy way to help define a show's hero, but for many of these series, the cars became characters themselves in a sense. Try to imagine the A-Team with their van, or Crockett & Tubbs without their Ferrari, or Starsky & Hutch without the "Striped Tomato." It just isn't the same.
