The 1976 Striped Tomato
It roared through the alley and out onto the main street, spinning completely to pin a perpetrator's car against the curb - it was the four-wheeled, 400 cubic-inch co-star of "Starsky & Hutch." The Ford Gran Torino, affectionately nick named, "The Striped Tomato" by Paul Michael Glaser.
During the course of the 1970s there were many versions of the Gran Torino made, most notably the Corgi version pictured above.
