I have seen pictures of some of Shane's other acquisitions. TK's spoof notwithstanding, it's obvious he has a
sharp eye for 'celebrity' vehicles and spares no expense on them.

Shane's 1st Celebrity car


After "Starsky and Hutch" ended its TV run in 1979, this '91 Tercel, complete with full documentation as a stand
in for the long shots, was snapped up by Shane for just under $30K. THAT'S haggling!


You really need something extra to win concours in East L.A.
Phatt!


Shane idolized David Hasselhoff as a kid (still does) and when the original K.I.T.T. came on the market,
he pounced. It was his earliest acquisition.


"I pity the fool who sold THIS national treasure.", Shane said when he scored this beauty.
It even sports Dwight Schultz' autograph on the tread of the left rear tire.


Thanks for sharing, Shane. You are doing a fine job in saving these historic vehicles.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Yee hah, Corrrrrrrrrrrrrrdobah!


Or, perhaps I've mis-remembered...I believe this beauty came with rich Appalachian pleather, from the Nauga region of the Tennessee Valley.
