Stars and cars

On The Rockford Files, private investigator Jim Rockford (James Garner) parked his gold Pontiac Firebird next to his mobile home on the beach in Malibu. Fourteen of the cars, models 1974 through 1978, were used over the series’ run, each modified and painted to look like the original 1974 model. In an interview, Garner said that his agent thought up the car’s license plate number of 853OKG. The “853” represents August 1953, when Garner got his first acting role; “OK” is his home state of Oklahoma; and “G” is for Garner.
