Cars of Hogan's Heroes

Set in a prisoner-of-war camp, Hogan’s Heroes would seem an unlikely program in which to find interesting vehicles, but there were several cars and trucks featured on the hit sitcom that merit consideration.

Hogan’s Heroes, the zany WWII-themed sitcom that ran on CBS from 1965 to 1971, isn’t in the same league as shows like Batman, The Munsters, or The Beverly Hillbillies when it comes to memorable “star cars.” However, while chronicling the havoc wreaked on the Nazi war machine by the fictional U.S. Colonel Hogan (Bob Crane) and his Allied crew in a German prisoner-of-war camp, Hogan’s Heroes nevertheless paraded some interesting vehicles. Check out the cars of Hogan’s Heroes.

25 Late-Model Collectible Cars

1985 Buick Riviera Convertible

While styling, performance, and rarity have been the traditional tickets to collectibility, vehicles that offer features—styling or otherwise—that are monuments to their era or simply aren’t likely to reappear also have a shot. It’s why we believe cars of the Fifties are so treasured today; their chrome, tall fins, and sheer mass so perfectly characterized the jet-aged optimism of the time, and it’s almost certain their likes will ever be seen again.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the June 2019 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Since its debut at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, Mazda’s MX-5 Miata has become an enthusiast favorite. Three decades later, Mazda came to the 2019 Chicago show with the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary limited-edition special. We think it’s worth checking out as a future collectible.
