  • Kojack Buick

    Always a bit of a surprise casting even back in the 70's. I welcome the chrome chassis and bumpers- but am never a fan of the chrome seats. If I find a decent duplicate, it might be worth customizing with real riders and a tan painted interior

        I wasn't the biggest fan of the show, but I did watch it, and of course how could we forget his famous quote.

          This is a perfect subject for Greenlight. They could really do the Buick justice. I still watch Kojak sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night.The plots seem far-fetched today but typical 70's crime plots.

              Corgi casting probably based on one of the later Regals/Centurys used in the Kojak series, based on the color and grille design. They used a few different models over the years, just like Jim Rockford's Firebirds. The dark brown was first, but the Corgi is based on the later models.

                Seaching the different Kojak Buicks is interesting. Several colors and tire/wheel cover variations. Sometimes the tires change from BSW to white in the same episode.

                      I was a fan of Kojak and his lollipops - still carry those "Kojak sticks" in my car when I am on road trips. Corgi Jr. was big on TV/movie related cars in their lineup so wasn't to surprised that they offered this one. It would be neat to see GreenLight offer an updated version with the technology that exists today. Meantime - make sure you behave when you are in the jurisdiction of Manhattan South,

                        This Kojak Buick (and a carded MB38 Chevy Pro Stocker) bought on a whim were the first two models in what later became my adult collection. These were the only two cars I had for at least 10 years. When I bought them I had no idea what it would start. The Kojak card got wet in a nasty flood, so this was the last photo before the car was liberated.

                            the Dukes of Hazzard cop cars are 1974 AMC Matador 1970 Dodge Polara 1978 Plymouth Fury and a 1975 Dodge Monaco
                            but Ertl used a 1980 Pontiac Bonneville instead
                            that car may have been used in the last 2 seasons of DOH

                            same toy car was used for Smokey & the Bandit 2
                            the 1st movie it was a 77 Pontiac Bonneville

                              Back in the '80s it was common to see used cars like these handed down to High School kids, who would do things to make them look faster... like jacking up the rear, Hot Wheels style.

                              Those of us of a certain age have plenty of memories of the once ubiquitous GM Colannade cars.
