David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser return as Starsky and Hutch for special fan event
UK Daily Mail ^ | Emma Gritt

As the stars of Starsky and Hutch, Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul became international icons, their characters a byword for cool.

And the veteran actors showed that they are still as suave today as in their 1970s heyday when they appeared at a special fan event in Venice Beach.

Detective Dave Starsky's iconic 1976 Ford Gran Torino - who some might say was the real star of the show - still managed to turn plenty of heads.

By the looks of it, I’m guessing Starsky didn’t do his slide across the hood of the Torino one more time for old time’s sake...

Only Kojak could make an old Buick look cool.

Last night, on an episode of Pawn Stars, someone sold a '69 green Buick Skylark. Off it went to Danny's shop and he refurbished the interior and painted the exterior a sleek black. Very chic.

Both of them look like their chests dropped down to their waists. Pretty must inevitable by the time one is 70.

David said, "Don't Give Up On Us Baby."

His song from 1977 for those too young to know.

Or as Mad Magazine called him, Buggy Hair.

As a fan of British mysteries, I have noted David Soul in several of their offerings and I’d have to say he’s a pretty darn good actor. Haven’t seen much of Glaser since the Starsky and Hutch days.

Is the Torino going to have handicap plates and a backup beeper?

Starsky and Hutch was a favorite in our household.

Of course, there was one episode where a homeless bum referred to them as Starpy and Huck, so we refer to them that way more often than not.

We were deeply saddened to learn of Glaser's wife contracting AIDS through a blood transfusion.

And most deeply saddened when, for purely political reasons, Paul Michael Glaser refused/returned a donation in honor of his wife for AIDS research from President and Mrs. Reagan.

What if he married Manfred Manns rare earth band?

Would he be "blinded by the light"?

What about Kojak's Buick Century.

That Kojak TV show cost me a pair of shoes and some sore feet once. Was visiting New York City for the first time. We parked in the WTC basement. Took the subway up to the Empire State building area. Well it was getting a little late in the evening and we had a mixed crowd. A corn raised lad from Iowa, a South African, an Englishmen who was ex-military and an Indian from England. This was all our first time in New York city.

Well the ex-military Englishman refused to ride in the subway back. He said he had watched Kojak and he knows what happens in the NY subways at night. So we had to walk the whole way. From the Empire State building to the WTC.

At least I got to appreciate just how big those WTC buildings were. Think it took us close to 4 hours.

Glaser played a young Bolshevik in the movie “Fiddler on the Roof”, looks like he wasn’t acting.
