Can you identify all these cool vintage cars on Adam-12?

See if you know these beautiful muscle cars and European imports.

Adam-12 was about two cops on patrol in the streets of L.A. Obviously, that involved a lot of driving and car chases.

Malloy and Reed came across just about every possible kind of vehicle on the road in the early 1970s. We gathered some of our favorites.

See if you can identify these gorgeous vintage automobiles. If you can, you're ready to work dispatch!

  1. This iconic car was small enough to bring indoors.
  2. Who made this fancy import?
  3. This 1969 model had iconic curves. Good luck keeping up with it in a chase.
  4. This 1970s car had a familiar — and notorious — rear end.
  5. You might not recognize it from the front, but the back half was unique.
  6. VW made this red car with a rather generic name.
  7. Who made this beautiful red sports car?
  8. This American icon had a front that was hard to mistake.
  9. This European car with the hood up — Columbo drove one like it. Who made it?
  10. This yellow speedster led a great chase in season four.
  11. This red 1969 convertible is a real beauty. Nash Bridges drove a yellow later model.

#8: This American icon had a front that was hard to mistake. Image was a red car with black hood and a mustang on the front grill. I selected Ford Mustang. The quiz said I was wrong. Said it was a Pontiac Trans Am. With a Mustang emblem on the grill?!?

#11 was a Plymouth Barracuda. I'll never forget the local Plymouth dealer's ads (South Florida) at that time. Two middle-aged men talking. One with a cracker-ish accent calling the car a Baccaruda. Back and forth: Baccaruda; Barracuda; etc. etc. LOL!

I knew the Plymouth Barracuda right off, as I am a huge Mopar fan, and I knew of that "Baccaruda" ad, at least as a radio ad, from a "Cruisin' 1965" CD of a rock radio program from 1965 that I have, which included that commercial!
As for the problem you had with #8, with the red Ford Mustang Mach 1, I don't know what would have caused that, as yes, it WAS a Ford Mustang, and when I clicked on "Ford Mustang", it was marked correct (just as it should have). I did not say that the correct answer was "Pontiac Trans Am".

I mean, "IT did not say that the correct answer was 'Pontiac Trans Am'"!

l'm not into foreign cars, & that "thing" that Columbo drove is an 0dd-Ball anyway! needless to say, l missed that 1.
l have heard before what it was, & who made it, but l forgot.

How old are you? You got more than that wrong. The Q&A's are clear. Columbo drove a Peugeot. Volkswagon made the Thing.
