So with Knight Rider showing up on UniversalHD (and SciFi) and Dukes of Hazzard having been on CMT for a while now, it dawns on me that there haven't been any primetime shows that featured a sweet ride lately. In 1984, we had KR, DoH, and A-Team to choose from.

I seem to remember a show that tried to recreate Knight Rider. I think it was syndicated and had a team of 5 or 6 drivers. If memory serves, it was called Team Knight Rider.

Show sucked, though...

A-Team is a bit of a stretch. Yeah, they had that van, and Face had the 'Vette for a while, I believe, but neither were a big part of the show.

Anyway, most recent auto-centric show that I can think of was "Viper," a syndicated show that aired in '94, cancelled, then was brought back in a modified form in '96 and aired until '99.

We need more shows with truckers, chimps, and hot women...like BJ & the Bear.

Part of the storyline in "My Name Is Earl" is that Earl keeps his lottery winnings in his sweet ride...

I think he moved it to the safe deposit box. Why he keeps the cash in the box and not in an account earning interest, I dunno.

I take it that was in the episode where Joy was looking in his car...I forgot about that...just watch the first few episodes then if you're looking for car related storylines...

No more car shows because the demographic has shifted.
I'm expecting to see "Mi Tio El TiVo" any day now. ;)

A lot of the Private Eye shows had distinctive cars.

That one in Vegas with the T-bird, Magnum PI with his Ferrari, and whatever that Don Johnson one was with Cheech Marin and the Dodge Challenger convertible.

I never watched them, but I noticed the cars.

It was a 'cuda convertable on Nash Bridges. And the one in Vegas with the T-bird was Vega$.
