Anyone looking for, as Ken “Hutch” Hutchinson would say, a “big red tomato with a white stripe”?

Throughout the popular 1970s TV show Starsky & Hutch, David Soul, in his role as Ken “Hutch” Hutchinson, repeatedly referred to his partner’s 1976 Ford Gran Torino as a “big red tomato with a white stripe.” One of the original “tomatoes” from the series, along with documentation of the authenticity of the car’s use in the show, is available to purchase through an eBay listing by the Cheswick, Pennsylvania owner.

TV Cars Can Be More Popular Than Their Shows

Often cars become so intertwined with the TV shows they appear in, that viewers often remember the cars more than they do the story. Knight Rider had K.I.T.T., the Dukes of Hazzard had General Lee, and Spenser had his Mustang GT Fastback. One of the more distinctive cars from TV lore is the 1976 Ford Gran Torino that found its fame with Starsky & Hutch.

While Popular With Viewers, The Stars Weren’t Fans

Truth be told, Paul Michael Glaser, who played the car’s owner David Starsky, never really liked the car. From the start, Glaser took a dislike to the red & white striped, mag-wheeled Torino. In several interviews, Glaser let it be known he felt the car was childish looking and felt the idea of two undercover cops riding around is such an outlandish car was absurd.

Only around 1,000 special examples of the 1976 Gran Torino were produced by Ford in this paint scheme and today, there are about 300 units still in existence today. Only two units were used during the filming of the show, which ran from 1976 until 1979, and this example is a documented model that was used in the production.

The “Tomato” Is In Pristine Condition, And Comes With The Light

We finally have some good news about Nvidia graphics card restocks

Home News Computing (Image credit: Nvidia) Nvidia has announced its plans to increase production and supply for the GeForce RTX 3060 series graphics card in July 2021, following the news that older RTX 2000 series GPUs would have their supply cut to meet the demands of the newer Ampere hardware. We’re also seeing prices for GPUs finally starting to come down after months of inflation thanks to China implementing a crackdown on mining activity in a fresh blow to crypto-miners in the country. Given the RTX 3060 was coveted by Cryptominers for its affordable price (after the anti-mining hash rate limiter had been circumvented, which didn’t take long to crack), this could mean the budget-friendly GPU will finally become more accessible to gamers.Here’s where to buy the Nvidia RTX 3080 TiAMD vs Nvidia: which is best?Here’s our list of the best crypto wallets aroundThe light at the end of the tunnel?It’s been reported…
