Did You Know?


While in the Sergeant's office, Sgt. Getraer tells Jon and Ponch that the Auburn they were chasing or one like it was stolen in Santa Barbara. As later revealed, the owner had died and the person making the theft report (his nephew) had no legal standing to do so since he was not the owner or executor. The Santa Barbara police would not have listed it as stolen. See more »

7 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Concours d'Elegance,a wealthy young man named Anthony Chadway isn't content with his trust fund.That makes leads him to a decision to run a scam by skimming money from a charity car auction. This leads Jon and Ponch to do an investigation on the scam designed to skim profits from auction sales of rare antique motor cars.

When they visit to investigate a hit-and-run involving a car registered to him, Jon becomes attracted to his sister,Felicia and Ponch falls for Anthony's lifestyle.Claudette Nevins,Gary Graham,Joan Prather and Linda McCullough make guest appearances.John Patterson directs.

This marks the final episode that Bruce Jenner appears as CHP Officer Steve McLeish and Erik Estrada's return to the show.

What makes this episode entertaining is the fact that charity cars auction scams was the violations committed by the criminals involved in illegal activities.This is the first time that the show used this after having bank robberies and insurance scams in the past episodes.Also,Joan Prather is a delight in the small screen.
