Starsky & Hutch

TV, Movie, Comic & Character

Starsky & Hutch is an American action television series, which consisted of 92 episodes of 50 minutes each. The show was broadcast from 1975 to 1979. The series also inspired a movie in 2004 and a video game.

The series' protagonists were two Southern California police detectives: David Michael Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser), the dark-haired, Brooklyn transplant and U.S. Army veteran, with a street-wise manner and intense, sometimes childlike moodiness; and Kenneth Richard "Hutch" Hutchinson (David Soul), the divorced, blond, Duluth, Minnesota, native with a more reserved and intellectual approach. Under the radio call sign "Zebra Three", they were known for usually tearing around the streets of fictional Bay City, California. Much of the series was shot on location in the Los Angeles beach community of San Pedro.

The vehicle of choice was Starsky's two-door Ford Gran Torino, which was bright red, with a large white vector stripe on each side. In characteristic contrast, Hutch's vehicle was a battered tan 1973 Ford Galaxie 500.

The Gran Torino has been modelled many times, a selection of which are below.
