I saw Get Smart this evening. Acording to TVLand it was episode 118. I have one question: When Max pulled up in front of the Control building, was that an Opal GT he was driving?
Don’t know if they’ve got the answer (haven’t found it yet), but you might try here: http://www.wouldyoubelieve.com/
ISTR him driving an Opal GT (I always called them “baby Corvettes” back then); but it was a long time ago, so I am quite foggy on it.
Hah! Scroll down this page to 5th Season: a gold Opel GT it is.
What the hell are you doing in my refridgerator???
Oh, and thanks for the info!
I always thought it was strange how Max started out drivng a Sunbeam Tiger - one of the screamingest British sports cars ever made (they crammed a Ford 260 V-8 into that thing!!!), then got downgraded to a Kharman-Ghia in later seasons. In the last season he got the Opal GT, which wasn’t a whole lot faster than the VW. It must have been the result of product placement deals.
DW, there’s a reason they look so similar.
