'Starsky & Hutch' The movie was not the show. "Starsky & Hutch" was one of the most influential cop shows of all-time, and an iconic image of the 1970s. The hair, the clothes, the attitude ... and the car. The show brought a hipness to the genre that had never really been there before, and the Ford Gran Torino was as hip as they made 'em. The mismatched detective duo of Starsky and Hutch would drive the car through the streets at top speed to catch criminals and chat it up with the street info hub and resident pimp, Huggy Bear. It was the red car with the white stripe that became a symbol of '70s cool.
