I think this may be old, but new for me.

The History Channel did a series of 3 on the Automobiles that made America.

Corvair got some air time, with some decent press and no negativity.

Lots of other good cars and scenes as well.

If you have search on your TV, look it up, I think it is archived.

An old Adam 12 episode (Season 1 Episode 19) was on the Television this evening and I happened to look up from the computer for a moment.
I saw a 1968 Convertible being pulled over with the character "Otis" (Hal Smith) from the Andy Griffith Show behind the wheel.
He portrayed an Drunk Driver without a License in the show. It was about 20 minutes into the 30 minute program.

I guess that is one of the nice things about watching old reruns on "MeTV". grinning smiley

The episode of Perry Mason that has Leonard Nimoy, also has an Early Model go across the screen in the opening traffic shot.

Of course the movie Forest Gump has an early convertible showing Jenny arriving back at college in the rain with her boyfriend before Forrest beats him up.

As you mentioned that, how could I forget that the best friend in Queens Gambit drives a pretty nice looking 65 in a couple of the later episodes.
