YAK Car Pic of the Day

Hugh Downs’ 1955 MGA

That’s NBC announcer Hugh Downs, on his way to do The Jack Paar Show, who’s just been pulled over in his 1955 MGA by Officers Toody and Muldoon (in their 1961 Plymouth patrol car). This was in Episode 11 of the first season of Car 54 Where You? which first aired November 26, 1961. Somehow Toody manages to finagle an appearance on the show. Of course, disaster ensues.
