1970’s: Cars from The Rockford Files
Of course, the Firebird Esprit. The main character’s car. And almost a character itself.
The car used in the show always looks treat. Like if Rockford had it detailed twice a day, every day.
I just wonder if sales actually went up with the popularity of the show….
Od course, the Ford LTD is everywhere. Both cops and bad guys are driving it.
This was one of the most popular cars back then anyway.
Lots of gangsters and mafia types in the show (Which was also produced by Sopranos creator David Chase).
Their favorite cars seemed to be dark Lincolns. These cars looked like they could just glide over anything…
Very popular with the various ladies in the show was the Mercedes SL.
What surprises me is how many of these I still see today in L.A. A few every day!
Pretty amazing for a car that was really expensive back then…
Finally, I went to see where Rockford’s trailer was. At least in the 1st season of the show.
The parking lot is still there, which is amazing after all these years….

Nicely done, Vince, I watch this show on the regular and it is always entertaining to watch.
Vince, I am a fan of Rockford Files. Thanks for sharing that visual.
Love these kind of posts, Vince!
What pier is that in the background of the shot with Rockford's trailer?
I'm Australian, and I'm wondering exactly where on the Californian coast it is.
The Malibu Pier.
