Theme Songs

I am a bit short on time and my computer is acting messed up so an off topic post tonight. I did have some market stuff to go over, but maybe tomorrow night.

Theme Songs
For some reason I had a particular shows theme song jammed in my head first thing this morning, and now I have thought about a bunch of TV show theme songs hence this post.

Who does not love the intro from Miami Vice?:

Ever wonder what happened to Crockett's Ferrari Daytona? Well, here you go:

Then he got the Testarossa.

I loved the show Hunter:

Fred Dryer!

Del Shannon's classic "Runaway" was featured in the show Crime Story:


I admit it, I saw every Beverly Hills 90210 episode all the way to the end....:


On USA channel the best double header was watching Renegade before The Highlander came on!:


Ok, so what was the song I had stuck in my head? The theme from 21 Jump Street:

Holly Robinson performed the title song herself. Loved that show.

Have a good night.

I made it back, it was about an 800 mile round trip but it was worth it.
That road, highway 129, aka 'The Dragon' is one of the few things in life that exceeded my expectations.
318 curves in 11 miles = nirvana.

You know I'm loving that Crime Story opening (I really like the song too), what a visual feast.
I know, I know, I am supposed to say that about the Miami Vice opening, but the first thought that came to my mind was "I can't believe those girls don't have tattoos on their lower back".

If you get a free 5 minutes, would love a report on that drive, you are crazy my man!!!!

I'll try to condense it so here goes:

I drove over 6 hours in pouring rain to get there, I mean 'cow pissing on a flat rock' kind of rain.
But once we got there it started to let up (my wife and daughter came with me).
At the start of the 11 miles I let a Porsche 996 go by (because the fam was in the car) and I started to follow it.
It wasn't but about 7 - 8 minutes later that my wife told me to "pull over, I think I'm going to be sick".
So I pulled over at one of the many 'pull off' islands on the side of the road and she tossed her cookies.
Needless to say that I had to drive really, really slow to the Fontana lodge that we were staying at after that.
I let them off and I went back out and got a couple of good runs in that evening before it got dark.

Before the trip was over I seen two other people puking on the side of the Dragon, that is how curvy this road is.
Sheer awesomeness!

I'll send you a pic (it's low resolution though) that one of the photographers took of me and the Bullitt while on the Dragon.

Hey I checked out your smallmouth bass in the last post...nice!

Sounds gross and fun!

Ah, all favorites of mine too! Especially Renegade, 21 Jumpstreet, and yes . . . even Crime Story. But I love that kind of music, so no wonder.

And WT -- whoa! That was one helluva drive! You really *are* crazy like GYSC said. :)

Talk about blasts from the past!

Watchtower, I'd have barfed too. That road does not sound like fun (at least not for the passengers!)
