I remember my parents watching that show. It ended in the USA before i started infant school but it may have been shown years later in the UK. I think there were some repeats on TV in the 80s? I'm pretty sure I caught a couple of episodes at some point during those "hazy" days.

Re: Films with Corvettes in?


Its nice to see a Corvette in a tv production just looking quite ordinary, but you couldn't do that with newer Corvettes today as no matter what setting they are in, they still look like someone attending a cocktail party wearing a gorilla suit..

First Corvette I ever saw was outside my primary school in Kilmarnock back in the mid '60's. It was a blue C2 and a female teacher was getting out of it. The driver was wearing a military uniform so it probably came from the USAF base at Prestwick. A few of us knew what it was as we had seen them in our Corgi catalogues.

Yeah - remember watching that on a two channel B & W t/v as a kid!
