A.J. Simon is a polished fellow with a taste for classic cars and tailored suits. Rick Simon is his less refined (but still pleasant) older brother who has a taste for cowboy boots and four-wheel drive pickups. The two of them live in San Diego, where they own a private detective agency. The series chronicles their exploits.
Did You Know?
Rick's truck, a "Macho Power Wagon", was part of a series of specialty 4x4 trucks manufactured by Dodge from 1977 through 1981, part of the "Adult Toys" campaign to appeal to younger buyers. The main truck used in the show was a 1979 model long bed, in sierra red, with special Macho paint job and decals. Midway through the first season, the production added a 1980 Dodge long bed 4x4 cloned to look like the '79 Macho. The '79 Macho roll bar has padding and perfectly straight diagonal supports. The '80 Macho clone has an after-market roll bar that isn't padded. Also, the diagonal supports bend horizontally before adjoining the main bar. Shots often alternate between the two trucks in the same scenes. See more
Although the series is set in San Diego, California, it's abundantly clear during many of the outdoor scenes that it was filmed in the Los Angeles metro. In several episodes the San Gabriel Mountains, which are outside of Los Angeles, can be clearly seen in the distance. See more
