Trivia

The red sports car that Ponch and John chase is a Dino 246. Although built and sold by Ferrari, it was never given the Ferrari name, as it had a V-6 engine, and only cars with V-12 engines could be called a Ferrari. (This policy would change soon after that when they introduced the 308 model.) Also, a sky blue Maserati Merak can also be seen on the highway during the chase scene. See more »

Quotes

Officer Francis Llewellyn 'Ponch' Poncherello: Yeah, well, y'know, like they say in the oil fields, "That's Shah business!"

In The Sheik,Ponch and Jon are frustrated by diplomatic immunity protecting a reckless driver. Then,the son of the sheik offers a bribe. They save a yacht from destruction. They honor a request to show the the son of the sheik what CHiPs do.

Ponch and Jon pull over a speeder who gives Ponch a sore chin and claims that he has diplomatic immunity. Out on the highway, Ponch and Jon find an accident caused by spilled nails in the road. After hanging around, they chase the speeding sheik again. When they check his registration, they find it expired a year ago and impound the car.

When the sheik invites them to a party, Ponch and Jon show off their jet-skiing ability. On deck of the boat, Ponch enjoys caviar and cold beer while Jon speaks "lousy French" to some "foxy ladies". The sheik then tries to bribe Ponch and Jon. They're about to leave when they see a boating accident and chase after the runaway boat with jet-skis. Jon saves the unconscious captain while Ponch steers the boat away from the sheik's yacht. After jumping overboard, the boat explodes.

Later, Ponch shows off his new apartment (without any furniture) to the sheik's cousin. The next day, Ponch and Jon take sheik Barney out in a cruiser to a junk yard where they show him wrecked cars. Later, they arrive at an accident scene where Ponch has Barney hold an I.V.. After the briefing, Ponch and Jon find that the sheik was giving them each a new Mercedes. They give them back and take a handshake.
