CC TV: Car Chases – Daytona Versus Firenza In Hunter

This has to be one of the best car chases I’ve ever seen in a TV show. I say that not just because it’s filmed in some hilly Los Angeles neighborhoods, and not just because of the gorgeous Stepfanie Kramer, and not just because of the impressive driving and stunts. No, this has to be one of the best car chases I’ve ever seen because the villains are wringing the crap out of an Oldsmobile Firenza. A little baby blue J-Car sedan in a high-octane car chase. Brilliant.

I spent an afternoon trawling through TVSTUNTER UK’s huge collection of 80s action show scenes and this is far and away my favorite. Sure, there are some continuity errors, like the Firenza swapping its wire wheel covers for rally wheels, but I’ve seen more egregious errors in newer shows – I seem to recall Wayne Palmer getting run off the road in 24 and his Lexus LS430 became an LS400 and then finally a Toyota Avalon.

Sit back and enjoy the clip. I don’t know about y’all, but I love it when a car chase features something you wouldn’t expect to see featured in a car chase!
