The Coyote: "Hardcastle & McCormick" was a cool show; a
light-hearted mystery/adventure series. The Coyote is certainly a
TV supercar, although it doesn't boast weaponry or any other
were actually two
different Coyote cars used in the "Hardcastle & McCormick" TV
series that ran from 1983-1986.
Season 1 (1983-1984): The first Coyote was built from Manta
Montage; it's a
kit car. The base chassis is from Volkswagen. The engine is
VW-Porsche 914. Although the engine is small, it makes this
lightweight car go very fast. After Season 1, the Coyote car was
changed. Why? Actor Brian Keith, who played the judge
Milton Hardcastle, found it incredibly hard to get in and out of this
car. So a second car was made in which Keith could maneuver much
easier. It's also been said that Daniel Hugh Kelly (McCormick)
didn't find the car too handy.
Seasons 2 & 3: The second Coyote was based on
car, the DMC-12. It kind of looks the same as the first, but it's
square. This Coyote isn't as sleek as the
first. Both Coyotes are good, but I like the looks of the first
