You may not know this being so young, but that was Ponch's car on the mega hit TV show CHIPs.

Oh, I see now, it's a 70 or 71 based on the grill.  Yeah, those Formulas suck screaming chicken balls. 

Ponch?  I guess you mean poncho.

SATB was a stinker. Reynold's funniest movie was W.W. And The Dixie Dance Kings. Still one of my favorite movies. Art Carney was also great in it.
