That photo sums it up well. Kitt and the A-Team van are top two favorites.

Do cartoons count? If so, I've been partial to the gullwing trans am from MASK, and the kid who turns into a trans am when he gets hot in Turbo teen!

Mr. T's (a.k.a. BA) van is not half silver.

Faceman's white 1984 Corvette is missing.

So is Al Bundy's Dodge.

Since we are in the subject of 80's shows and cars... I've been trying to find about this one 80s tv show but I haven't figured out the name they used for it here in the states.. back in my country they simply called it 'automan' it was about this computer geek cop who creates a 'hologram man' that can actually do stuff like normal people as long as his energy lasts.. this hologram dude had a 'partner' <a cursor, > which would create his car out of the nowhere, it was a lamborghini countach, black with blue neons on every single straight edge of it <keep in mind this is the 80's, it looked pretty bad ***> does anyone know this show?

I watched that show a few times when I was younger. It was pretty interesting although it did not last very long. It seemed more like Knight Rider and Airwolf type show. It was called Automan and I remember the black sports car he turned into but not sure if it was a Lambo. I remember an episode where he turned into a helicopter and another flying vehicle. If you look on imdb.com you can probrably find a little more info on the show.

The white Ferrari Testarossa in Miami Vice was a great car. I remember when I lived in North Carolina I would occasionally see Dukes or Hazard painted General Lee Chargers driving around. I even met the guys who played Boss Hog and Rosco at a car show. My mom met the lady who played Daisy a few years ago and got an autograph picture. The Smokey and the Bandit trans am was one of my favorite cars and movies from the 80's. Knight Rider is a classic.
