Dad, Can I Borrow the Rod?: Cars of Famous TV Fathers

NADAguides.com is celebrating Father's Day by examining the cars of some famous TV fathers. While we'd always been partial to Mike Brady's seemingly endless selection of Mopar convertibles, we hadn't considered Ward Cleaver's similar proclivities, of the Plymouth sedan variety, or Al Bundy's '72 Dart (what else would he drive?). Still, even with Tony Soprano's SUV's and Hulk Hogan's Viper, there are at least two TV-dad rides they failed to mention. Check 'em out after the jump, and include your own candidates in the comments.

Darrin Stevens, "Bewitched": 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS/RS
Poor Darrin. The awkward sod had a wife with magic powers, a mother-in-law with a vindictive streak you could drive a team of Clydesdales through and a boss who accepted credit for all his best advertising ideas and drove a hot Corvette Singray. But don't shed a single tear for big D. Parked in front of his suburban saltbox was a fully loaded '67 Camaro SS/RS, with an MSRP of around $4,000. Possessing such a fine daily driver was surely worth being turned into a goat or chimpanzee now and again.

Herman Munster, "The Munsters": George Barris Munster Koach
Herman Munster may have been the most henpecked of all Frankenstein's monsters, but when the family went picnicking, they piled into the Kustom Koach, designed by the King of Kustomizers, George Barris. Barris derived the Koach from three Model T bodies and slapped on a Ford 289 Cobra engine, with chrome-plated Stromberg carbs across the top, to tug at the reins. It cost $18,000 to build (in 1964 dollars), making it off limits for any funeral parlor janitor whose father wasn't a doctor.
