Last night, we suffered a bout of insomnia, and as such found ourselves caught up in the Beeb's excellent Johnny Got His Gun-meets-The Sweeney mashup, Life On Mars. DCI Gene Hunt's Cortina fits the character like a glove and got us thinking — what other television and/or film vehicle driven by a law enforcement official fits the character to a T? Marion Cobretti's '50 Merc? David Starsky's Gran Torino? Steve McGarrett's Park Lane? Go forth and pontificate, dear readers!
