Elizabeth 'Beth' Davenport (Gretchen Corbett), Jim's lawyer and sometime girlfriend, drove a 1975 Porsche 914 during the first season, and a 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL (R107) for the second through fourth seasons. Angel Martin (Stuart Margolin), Jim's shifty best friend, drove a white 1965 Cadillac DeVille convertible he nicknamed "Lucille".
Does your mother know what you do for a living?
Throughout the series Rockford's trailer, parked in a parking lot, has electricity and running water, yet there is no evidence of a power line or plumbing attached to the unit. What's more,it often changed position, alternating with it sometimes being parked parallel to the beach and sometimes perpendicular to it.
The credits for guest stars, writers and other upper-level crew did not always appear right away, sometimes appearing as late as ten minutes into the episode.
