Get Yer Motor Runnin'...
Some Hot (and not-so-hot) Wheels
Okay, so some of these aren't exactly "hot wheels," but they have become rather intrinsically linked with their drivers.
It's weird. You would assume private eyes would drive bland, inconspicuous cars that blend into the background, and for most of them, that is indeed the case. But a few of them, particularly on television, seem to have strange ideas about what the word "inconspicuous" actually means.
Like, I mean, come on, Thomas. A bright red Ferrari?
But regardless of their appropriateness, some of these cars were so jaw-droppingly cool (or goofy) that they received perhaps the highest accolade of the cool car world: they were made into model car kits.
Preliminary list compiled by Kevin Burton Smith, with a really, really big and heart-felt shout-out to John Boyle. Anyone who has info, photos or illustrations of any of these cars (or of the possible models or toys they inspired) are urged to contact Kevin.
