They are running the whole Adam 12 series on the Me TV channel on our local cable network, so my wife has been recording them, and we have been watching them. I feel like I am a kid again watching them! We have been watching Mannix too!
Watch the vid Pete has about their car.
Cant beat a 68-69 383 belvedere for a squad car
I watch it occasionally on METV here too
I recall an AMC Madador also.
From the article...
In the process of laying rubber I see.
I just began binge watching the episodes in order from the first pilot (on youtube). The LAPD switched from 6" barrel to 4" barrel revolvers during the run of the show. Weapons: http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Adam-12
Comment from Season four, episode five when Malloy (alone in patrol car) drives off the road in Griffith Park and crashes: "I remember watching this episode when it originally aired. They used a 1971 Plymouth Satellite then as it went off the road it was a 1969 Plymouth Belvedere (my favorite car from the series). As it ended on the bottom of the hill, it became a 1970 Mercury Montego." crash at minute 4:20
if you pay attention to the show they will be driving around in a belvedere and when they go to a interior of car shot while they are driving the inside shot will be a matador I've caught it in a few episodes also it seems they only drive around the same block over and over as the same background cars appear many times... also a red 71 charger RT appears in the rear view as they were driving in one show..
Sounds like they had a very small patrol area. Lol
When they show them sitting in the car driving from the front, you can see that the windshield is missing except for the outer edges. You can see the reflection of a shade in those small edges. Talked about here: http://www.kentmccord.com/archives/adam12/pilot.htm
it might be weird but when ever I watch a show or movie from the 60's or 70's these days I'm mostly focused on the background Cars and what details I can spy in the shots. so if they are driving around, I'm paying attention to what they are passing by when normally you would never notice that stuff.
I watch the old , CHIPS episodes mainly for that reason.
after seeing that pic that's funny now its obvious what is going on they just tow that belvedere around the same block in circles!! LMAO thinking back, when I spied that 71 rt going behind them it looked like it was barely rolling at 10 mph in the shot makes perfect sense now..
I wonder if Mac always had to drive the wagon towing them?
Always liked the show. Watching them now when I'm able. Don't know if I have seen every episode. I have always considered it a more realistic cop show. As others have said I also enjoy the cars and the period. Remember it was made on a TV show budget !
I have a Mannix question (also on ME TV),What is the car Mannix drives in the first season ? it looks like a Toronado Convertible.
The wagon is super cool!
