  1. A little research tells me that the '80s Stingray was shown in the UK, but I don't remember it (and I watched a fair number of US TV shows back then). Maybe it was shown at an odd time. Dukes, the A-Team, Knight Rider etc. all made it to primetime, but other '80s shows like The Highwayman and Tour of Duty were shown at around 11pm and possibly midweek (IIRC). Here's the intro for the '60s Stingray show that I know:

  2. Stingray was a product of Stephen J Cannell of A-Team fame. It would have been better if Ray would have done some hood slides over his Vette. Come to think of it, Charlie's Angels would have been better if Farrah would have done some hood slides over her Mustang.

  3. I don't think I've ever seen that show, Roger (I'm not sure if it made it to the UK). The 1965 Stingray was at #75 in that list of 100 Greatest Movie and TV Cars. When I think of a TV show called Stingray, it's the 1960s submarine-based puppet series that comes to mind. It was created by Gerry Anderson, who also gave us Thunderbirds and Space 1999.

    The Coke Zero 400 set the field for the playoffs. While Jimmie Johnson was making moves like an Earnhardt and looked like he might make it into the playoffs in his final season if not for a crash caused by Tyler Reddick blocking. Jimmie Johnson did what he needed to do finishing stage 1 & 2 ahead of his playoff spot competition and gaining much needed points but in the end it wasn't meant to be. Matt Dibenedetto clinched the final playoff spot finishing the race in 12th. William Byron clinched a spot in the playoffs by winning the race which quickly turned into a demolition derby in t

  5. Now, that is one super hot......automobile. The car would look a lot better if that girl would get out of the way and Emma Tisdale would hop on the hood.

  6. Here's another coincidence....I hadn't seen a Stingray episode in quite awhile and just got an itch to watch one last night. The TV series only lasted 2 years (1985 and 86) but I really liked it. It starred Nick Mancuso and he drove a black 1965 hardtop Stingray.

    A lot of what you see on the internet is a bunch of garbage so maybe that's not so bad. Since the HazzardNet is the best website on the internet, it's a good thing it didn't get affected. MM guards it as fiercely as Miz Tisdale guards the mail.

  8. What are the chances? This afternoon I was in a neighboring town when I passed a C5 Corvette. Two American cars in one day is very unusual outside of a car show over here. So there you have it, Roger: even I'm more likely to see an old Corvette than an XK-E!

  9. About an hour after I wrote this I was driving through town when a black 2017 Mustang passed me. I couldn't have planned it better!

  10. I can't remember the last time I saw one on the road, and none of the car shows are taking place this year. I'd say you're more likely to see an E-Type over in the UK, but they're still rare enough. By coincidence, as I write this I'm watching TV show about restoring a Corvette Stingray (a C3) in the UK. The guy it belongs to is a member of a local Corvette owners club, so there must be a few Corvettes around. Back around 1980 there was an early-70s C3 parked outside some apartments about half a mile from where I lived. It was quite an exotic sight back then, and probably the first I'd se

  11. Outside of the regular vehicles, one of my favorites is Jason Dollard's AC AutoKraft Cobra from 'The Dukes in Hollywood'. It actually belonged to Dukes producer Ralph Riskin. Being an English classic, I also like Gaylord Duke's Jaguar XK-E (or E-Type as it was over here).
