Re: RARA-AVIS: Private eyes without cars

Date: 30 Nov 2006

Juri asked:

"Has there ever been any fictional private eye who doesn't have a car to his/her own? I seem to remember a TV series, from the sixties, perhaps?"

You're probably thinking of Harry O, from the '70s, with David Jansen. Although Harry had a car, but it was always in the shop. His mechanic, who seldom gave him a loaner, was a recurring character. So Harry spent a lot of time on the bus.

Matt Scudder doesn't have a car, does he? There are probably other New York PIs who don't.
