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!

Watch Adam-12 on MeTV!

  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.

Perfect Score. I originally started watching these classic reruns just to see the cars. But the show is is so good, I have a reminder set now. Police used to be there to serve & protect. Malloy & Reed are a class act. ~S

I'm not sure I would have gotten #9 if they hadn't mentioned that Columbo drove one.

Is there anyone alive on this forum besides me?

This quiz was child's play. I see many cars on the street in Adam 12 that you folks are most likely clueless about.

I missed the Peugot! Never a fan of the French cars...LOL

The French, like the Germans made the very first automobiles at about the same time. They were innovators than...and now. They make the Mirage jet fighters and sell more weapons to warring small countries than anyone except the US.
Renault (pronounced ree-no) has Formula One race cars and collaborates with Hyundai and Kia on engines. Peugeot and Citroen are two of the oldest car makers in the world.

Been a long time since I aced one... must be all the Scotty Kilmer videos I've been watching...

It's all been in my head since I was a kid. I learned the names of all the cars on the road at 3 years old, thank to Dad. As I got older, I had a keen interest in them. When I was hired as a police officer at 22, I found my knowledge of them to be a real asset in making traffic stops. Out of a 120 man department, no one else could give a detailed description of year, make and model on every stop.

#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'"!
