Yep - I was wondering when someone was going to mention the coolest car
Until the Flintstone's ride was mentioned, I thought maybe the OP was
excluding cartoon cars.
And since the Flintstone's car is in the "top 10", I should point out
that there were much cooler cars on that series than the one Fred drove.
Seriously - what next? Including the Brady's station wagon just because
it was a popular TV show?
And what about The Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo? Doesn't that
deserve an honorable mention at least?
And while I agree the Munster's family car should be on the list, what
about Grandpa's dragster?
Yeah, I was amazed they skipped Miami Vice; I figured they used up their
Ferrari quota on Magnum. And of course for (I think) most of the run it
was a GTSi. And I don't think Robin paid for gas. I mean, how could
he? Unless he gave Magnum a credit card. There isn't a gas pump to
steal from on the estate, and Higgins sure isn't gonna gas it up or
No, it doesn't. Another underpowered smogged-out 80s POS, not a real car
underneath. At least Rockford's firechicken could be had with a big-inch
v8. And I'm still trying to think of a Ford that's better than the
all-looks and no go 75 Torino on Starsky and Hutch.

Maybe the big block powered, luxo barge Mercurys from Hawaii Five-0? :)
Actually, I can't think of any cool Ford TV cars. Movie cars are a different
Bullitt, Gone in 60 Seconds, White Lightning, etc.
Well, given that I also like Chrysler 300s and drive a C-body Dodge,
YEAH, those would count :-)
But seriously, SOME TV show must have featuered a '66 to '70 Torino. Or
a Cougar, or a Mach 1...
More than half the cars on TV in the 60s and 70s were Fords, but like
you say all I remember are things like McGarrett's Mercs, Cannon's
Lincoln, and Hutch's beat-up LTD (and yeah, Starsky's Torino too), and
Uncle Jesse's pickup. But I'm sure I'm just forgetting something.
