Because they were Portuguese border guards.

Yes, I realize that my post was short, but I didn't think I had to explain that I was offering to assist the OTHER people, the ones you said would not get it. I kinda thought it was obvious that you didn't need to get the reference.

That would be difficult unless they completely recast Mr. Roarke & Tattoo.

I was just thinking that same thing.

In series format... I dunno

If it were a movie... totally Sean Connery.

Yep... He was the only one I could think of that could fill the shoes of Hervé Villechaize, so to speak..

Actually.. If it were a series ...

Jonathan Goldsmith would be PERFECT.

I don't always grant fantasies, but when I do... they come with life lessons... and Dos Equis.

Already been done, in 1998.

Malcolm McDowell was Mr. Roarke.

It was a damn good show, but had the misfortune of being on ABC at 10 PM on Saturday Night. Lasted about 13 episodes.

Corinth is famous for its leather!
 
2012-09-27 07:56:38 AM  
Actually the "Corinthian" leather thing was just a marketing concept by Chrysler. Most of the leather used in their luxury vehicles came from a supplier in Newark, NJ.

Is it just me or does the headline seem like a repeat?

I like what they've done to my car

I bet he gave his ID card to the border guard
which said he was Captain Jean-Luc Picard
from the United Federation of Planets
but he didn't speak English anyway..

Gas guzzling aside, I'd love to have a brand new one of these. It'd definitely turn some heads on the roads today.

Just a few years and a few hundred miles north and the story would have get a hero tag.

Police only realised there was a third man inside the Moroccan-plated Renault 7 when they started examining the seat - and touched flesh instead of foam.

If I'd been the one checking that would have freaked me the hell out.

When I was a kid, we had one that was purchased brand new off the lot. Looked like the one in the pic, except it was a shade of green that was somewhere between the Forest and Kelly (not to be confused with DeForest Kelley) with a white pleather landau top and yes, soft Corinthian Leather interior in white. Pops was a big believer in "biggest engine available", so that would have made it the 400.

It was the biggest POS on the road. When it wasn't in the shop, it needed to go back to the shop. My pops swore off Chrysler products for the rest of his life as a result.

//I currently drive a late model Chrysler product, and I can tell you that pops may have been correct!

Es 'Coreentian' -- no habla Ricardo Montalban.

That commercial is funny as hell where they show the car WALLOWING along a mountain road. Scary that was a pretty cool car back then.

They shouldn't call him illegal! He's an undocumented sitting apparatus and should be granted asylum.

LL Cool J's penchant for camouflaging himself as furniture was the only think I liked about TOYS.
