f you grew up glued to the tube in the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s, you know Hollywood was car crazy. While your television screen was full of Italian exotics and big, bad American muscle cars from the General Lee to KITT, there were plenty of prime time pickup trucks, as well.
Many of the most popular television shows of the era that were famous for their star cars—The Rockford Files, CHiPs, and The Dukes of Hazzard, to name a few—also featured star trucks. Some hit shows, like The Fall Guy, were all about the pickup.
