With the news of Andy's passing, for which I too shed a few tears this morning, I'm back to an old quest that's haunted me for years.
We all know about the infamous JL-327 tag number for the squad car for all episodes but one, however there was another vehicle at some point that had that tag. It wasn't "Aunt Bee learns to drive" or Barney's car he bought from Mrs. Lesh........but I know I saw it somewhere.
Can anybody help?
Uh, don't think it was the tow truck.
How about the glaring discrepancy regarding the Courthouse all thru Season 1 ?
Anybody? Or am I in the wrong place?
Was it on Mr. Tuckers's Lincoln?
Your glaring discrepancy from Season One was the fact that from the outside, the courthouse had a window over by the barber shop, but from the inside there was no window. This was obviously corrected for Season Two.
Maybe I've been looking in the wrong place all these years, but you're the first person to be able to explain that window issue. Thanks.
Still looking for the JL-327 answer. My youtube guy that had so well listed all episodes got shut down by CBS, copyright issues. So I'm back to square one.
I could have sworn I saw the tag on one of Aunt Bee's driving episodes. But can't find it.
For some reason, the phone number to the Foster's Furniture Polish guy's mobile car phone comes to mind...
Maybe they used JL-327 on a different vehicle in the early part of season one since DC-269 was used on the squad car in three different episodes around that time. Ellie Comes to Town (4), Andy the Matchmaker (7) and Opie's Charity (8). They seemed to switch plates back and forth early but then stuck with JL-327. I also know DC-269 was used on different cars later on too.
You beat all, Al, you know that? I'm still laughing.
I found all 3 showing the DC-269....you are correct....good eye.
But no sign of the JL-327 in any of those episodes.
