PETER FALK'S "SLIGHT"
Now if you owned a Jaguar sports-car, you wouldn't forget it, now would you?
Of course not, but then you're not Peter Falk, who now earns at least $100,000-per-segment
as TV's Columbo Seems a secretary dropped Peter's red Jaguar at a Beverly Hills shop for
repairs When six months went by-with nary
a word from Peter or his secretary - the manager of the garage called Falk's

A little trivia from the Site:
We first see a E-type Jaguar in Etude In Black
owned by Maestro Alex Benedict,
John Cassavetes. Columbo checks the mileage "There are 9 miles extra on the
speedometer, it's exactly 9 miles to the victims house"
Another E-type Jaguar, yellow in colour appears in The
Greenhouse Jungle owned by Tony Goodland, Bradford Dillman to create the

the path of the bullet it should have passed through the driver.
In Requiem For A Falling Star former movie
queen Nora Chandler, Anne Baxter pours a can of gasoline on the car port and splashes a
trail of fuel to the hill behind the house. Jerry's car pulls up she strickes the fatal
We then see another E-type Jaguar, Red this time in Murder
In Malibu Owned by
Wayne Jennings, Andrew Stevens. Columbo say's "I've never sat in one of these
before!" well not entirely true. Columbo check the speedometer once more.
