Aziz wrote Are there a lot of car chases in this series?

Yes, there are quite a few chases in this series.

I just added video screencaps from the made-for-TV movie, known as "Backlash of the Hunter," that served as the pilot episode. I forgot that IMDb has a separate page for this movie, and will transfer my screencaps to that page. I will also start adding caps from episodes to this page.

there is a nice car chase between the most seen '74 bronze metallic Pontiac Firebird and a nice blue '68 Chrysler 300 4 door hardtop, for instance...

I remember the following models in car chases:
1)a 1968 metallic blue Chrysler 300 4 door hardtop, with vinyl top.
2)a metallic red 1973 Buick Riviera.
3) a '75 or '76 Cadillac Eldorado convertible in red metallic.
4) an Ivory Mercedes-Benz 280 /8 with sunroof.
5) a metallic light green 1973 Buick Electra 4 door hardtop.

The sans chauffeur Peugeot 504 in the thumbnail is a US spec. model. The plate, like that of the Cooper S, is fake.

Swiss rear plates were always laid out on two lines until 1987. Since then, standard European size plates have been allowed as well. (And Swiss front plates are tiny.)

That part of the episode was clearly filmed on a backlot with US-spec. European cars. Are the plates based on an actual canton? I couldn't find one that uses LA, and the red and white crest appears to be the reverse of Soleure Canton.

Ddey65 wrote Is there any chance we'll get to see this tall woman and the red wagon she drives?

Rockford is hired to find the Charlotte-Anne Duskey (played by Susan Damante), the "tall woman in a red wagon." Unfortunately, we never see her wagon. When Rockford finds her she looks like this:
[Image: s1e05susandamante001.871.jpg][Image: s1e05susandamante002.3300.jpg]
She's hurt, not killed, and ends up in the hospital.

Rockford, of course, meets many women during his investigations. Here are a few from the episodes I've done so far:
From Ep. 1.00 (/movie_72093-The-Rockford-Files.html) Nita Talbot as Mildred Elias:

#111 is a '57 Buick.

#30 is a '52/'53 Lincoln.

I think #34½ is a '49 Chrysler.

#169 is a '53 Chevy.

#13 is a '55 Ford.

Why does Rockford keep getting a new Firebird every season instead of using the same car?

Anyone else ever spotted that right at the beginning of Episode 1 during the establishing shots there's a shot of a pier and as the camera pans left there's Columbo's grey Peugeot convertible parked?

Must have been a little libary footage used...

I recently bought a boxset of the sixth and final season. I don't know if or when I'm going to start uploading images from it or not.

I know I haven't posted any new images in about a year. I left off with "The Man Who Saw the Alligators" (Ep. 5.16). I would like to get back to it. I think the next episode is "The Return of the Black Shadow" which has a ton of motorcycles.
