Re: Watching Cheers and they just showed Sam Malone's Corvette (theandies)
The Coupe was on My Classic Car TV show with the owner. It is a 1967 red BB with C4 suspension and side pipes. Denis Gage went for a ride in it with the owner whom works in the film industry (not an actor). But he did do stage stuff for Cheers. When they were looking for a Vette to use as Sam's car he offered his. He did say his Vette was never seen on the show with Sam driving it.
One time it did show it being towed though.
If anyone is interested I can find the episode number of My Classic Car and post it and the owner's name.

Hmm ... there appears to be Yet Another Midyear. There's an episode where Woody drives Sam to Vermont and it's not a BB car. At least, it's not a BB hood :) Can't tell what year the car is, since they never pan out.
Re: Watching Cheers and they just showed Sam Malone's Corvette (kenmo)
Your right about the 67 BB.
There was a write up on it several yrs ago in
one of the Corvette rags. (got it in the huge pile somewhere)
It was parked in the lot, and they needed a car for a show,
so they used it. The owner has owned several nice Vettes.
& Just happened to drive the Red one to work that day.
Re: Watching Cheers and they just showed Sam Malone's Corvette (ronets)
There was an episode where his car was stolen and Sam held a support group in his bar for people who had ther muscle cars stolen. In that show he explained that his car was a fuel injected 64. I believe the car in the episode where Sam was teaching woody to drive his car was a 64 also.
If you click on the picture of the Red 67 (in the My Classic Cars web) and go to the bottom of the next screen - It talks about buying a Corvette L-89 which turned out to be one of the RARE L-89's... BONUS TIME FOLKS.... :eek:
Enjoy... Enjoy.... :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
