Thank you Ted. Actually I can't take credit for spotting the car ,I just posted that it would be interesting to see Columbo work with Reed & Malloy and it was you actually Ted, who remembered Headache's post and put up the picture.
FYI MeTv here in the US are showing two episodes of Adam-12 every night. I think there on season 2 right now.
I know it's crazy, but it occurs to me that, since the woman was driving Columbo's car, right down to the license plate, logically she must be his wife. (She gave a different name, presumably her maiden name.) Clearly she is, like Columbo, a transplant from New York. Mrs Columbo, revealed! Although, admittedly, she isn't much like we imagined.
