I am adding screen captures for episodes 1 and 2 but the quality of the pictures could be better.

If anyone is intending to add theirs please let me know or replace them where necessary.

I saw the series premier last week, and I was wondering where the 1970's NYPD cars were. It looks like they were saving them for the second episode, because I saw a 1972 Fury back then. Sorry, I don't have screencaps.

Is that Jeep involved in any car chase?

The Jeep is not used in a car chase. Most car chases will take place in the past, back in the 1970s, I guess.

It is used in a scene in which Sam (the driver) and Maya (his partner) are responding to a crime scene but, as said above, not a chase.

1973 Sam drives a '71/'72 Chevelle SS or Malibu SS. Gene Hunt has a Dodge Coronet, can't remember if it's a '72 or '73.

I think it's a '72. I know IMDb was running ads for it that showed the car. Maybe ABC's official website has episodes.


UPDATE: I was wrong. It's a 1971:

And that's a '72 Dodge. Thought so.

Episodes one and two completed.

1.01 "Out Here in the Fields"

1.02 "The Real Adventures of the Unreal Sam Tyler"

More but smaller, background vehicles.

Including a Ford? pick-up, sedan and scooter. Did the NYPD actually use scooters? It looks to be implied that it was used for patrol.

The Ford F-350 could be from anywhere between 1973 and 1977. I can't see enough of the grille to know if it's a true '73 or not. The sedan is a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle.

I don´t understand why in that kind of series set in the 70s doesn´t appear the real best selling cars of that era, like Impalas, LTD, Pintos, Vegas, etc.

Unless I'm mistaken, Sam is shown exiting a '71 Ford Custom in tonight's episode. They only showed a brief glimpse of the passenger side headlights.

Edit: I got a screencap from the online video at abc.go.com and there's a lot more of that Ford front end than I thought. It just went by so fast on the TV that I only caught the passenger side headlights.

I don't know about Impalas and LTDs, but there aren't that many restored Pintos and Vegas running around in 2008!

Well, the '72 Impala that was used in "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" was in decent shape for a movie made in 2004, and that movie wasn't exactly a period piece.

BTW, I missed last weeks episode, but I'm not missing this one.

Vehicular anachronism tonight: there was a television commercial for the AMC Pacer, which didn't debut until 1975. I didn't get a very good look, but the ad may even have been for a redesigned 1978 model.

It was. Not only that, the Police truck (which was probably a Gerstenslager) had square headlights, something which wasn't even added by GM until 1975, and certaily wasn't added on trucks until later on in the decade.

UPDATE: I just submitted the goof to IMDb.

Hello to all the Fans of LOM (Life on Mars) & My 1971 Lincoln Mark III

The First Lincoln Mark III was actually introduced in 1957-58?? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Continental_Mark_III
This Series of Mark's Started out as a 1967 Thunderbird when Iacocca (then a top Ford exec) directed design VP Gene Bordinat to "put a Rolls Royce grille on a Thunderbird."
The First Mark III's were sold as 1968 1/2. This Year & the 1969 Had Exposed Windshield Wipers. Starting in 1970 They were Hidden under the Hood & Stayed that way from then on. That is the only Way to tell the 1969 Mark from the 70 & 71's
If you want to learn more the Wikipedia Link above is a great place to start.

I am the Proud owner of this Lincoln, which looks just like the French Connection Car & also Very Proud to be Part of LOM.
The Cast & Crew, the BG Extras & All the other Car owners are the Greatest Group of People it's been my Pleasure to Work with.
I almost forgot to Include the Craft Service People :king:
My car & I have also worked on
Taking Woodstock http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1127896/
Last of the Ninth http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1174038/

I would be Happy to answer any Questions about the Cars & show that I can So feel free to ask
Just give me a day or two to get back to you.
Don't forget to Watch Life On Mars Starting up again on 1/28/09 Wednesday @ 10:00 PM EST. on ABC

Hi Don, welcome to IMCDb.

I guess the question of most interest currently is about Sam Tyler's Chevelle. Is it really a genuine Chevelle SS or a standard Chevelle made to look like an SS?

Since there's a lot of interest in Sam Tyler's car, here are some clear shots of it. To the best of my knowledge, it's a nicely done SS clone. I don't know how to decode GM VINs of that era off the top of my head - I'll try and grab the VIN and clear up any confusion

Here's a NYPD officer in prone position with his arms steadied by a scooter in 1971. Caption says it's on 44th Street so I'd guess it got called away from Central Park.

Appears to be late '70s or early '80s Chevy/GMC. Anybody able to pin the model year?

An anachronism, anyway, with the rectangular headlights.
