great show...great cars...those 2 Firebirds
29 July 2015 | by claytonmooreSee all my reviews

In this episode Rockford is driving a two round headlight gold Pontiac Firebird at the first of the show. Later he is shown driving a 4 square headlight gold Pontiac Firebird. This second car shown in the second half of the show is a newer model year. Ooops! Did Jimmy have two Firebirds at the same time? Also, the fleeing student being chased by the hoods in the convertible Buick Wildcat had a nifty MG B car that we all would like to have had in high school. The actress portraying Leslie the hollow headed tenure seeking professor needs to go to some courses at the Ava Garner School for new actresses in Smithfield NC as her acting was rather flat. Rockford usually has better co-stars in his shows.
