Been on a Rockford Files kick lately and came across this footage of Jim driving by a BMW dealership. Strictly for us nerds 😁 (That's my wife saying "hit it" telling me when to capture, we were both e

Also a longtime Rockford Files/James Garner fan.  That was a really special show in its day, and it still holds up IMO.  I also remember some NBC promo or special with Garner back in the day, demonstrating how to do a high speed J turn in his trusty Sierra Gold Firebird.  I may or may not have exercised typically sound teenage judgement by practicing the technique on a quiet street the next day.

 

@fastricky, love your wife's voiceover.  When combined with the background tune the overall effect is like a music video.  Count me as the first fan for her new original composition, "Hit It Hit It Hit It!"   😜

Good eye!  It rolled right in to your next video (‘76 912E), great road.  I like how the bikers could hear you coming and moved over! Tom

 

Thanks! I got that video shoot in right before the first snow, my first attempt. I'll be doing a vid with my tii once Spring arrives 👍. Here's some pics of my setup... (mic tucked in the backseat facing the engine)

I went on a binge when covid first hit watching the Rockford files....I have taken a short video of each 2002 that popped up on it.  Rockford Files is great as there are a ton of driving scenes.  I think that dealership appears on another episode, if I remember correctly..."

 

Here are just a few....

 

"Claire" Season 1, Ep 20

"Say Goodbye to Jennifer" S1,E21 (you can see the top of a mintgrun car)

Big fan of Garner. But loved the character as well. Still my fantasy of telling people of "Yeah I have a place in Malibu, right on the beach.... you should come by some time" and have a Rockford type home waiting for them.....

 

Also used to love how he would break his hand when he would punch someone.....

One of my all-time favorite shows.  Rockford was one of the first TV "heroes with feet of clay"--a good guy but not always on the up-and-up. 

 

Oddly enough, even though I owned a 2002 the whole time the show was on the air, I don't remember seeing any in the episodes--nor the dealerships.  But I especially enjoyed the episodes when his lawyer (played by Gretchen Corbett) made an appearance...
