Hi, trying to identify an old TV series that a local NJ station would run once and a while in the early to mid 70í. As a kid I would watch this along with Combat anytime it came on

The opening credit for the shows would feature M8 Greyhounds driving down a road, that I know for sure. I know there was a series called The Gallant Men but I canít really place it.

If anyone has any recollections of that show let me know. Just one of those silly things Iím trying to remember.

Hi Chris,
I grew up watching Combat as well. I picked up the entire series on ebay a few years ago. There was also a show I watched called Rat Patrol. They used M8 ACs as well as M7 Priests and US half tracks to represent German armor Don't know if this helps you. If this is not it I'll be following to see what you find out.
Thanks
John

Iím familiar with all of those too. This looked to be much older and was in black & white. The M8 Greyhounds in the opening credits were definitely American, but the funny thing is they never appeared as part of any of the episodes that I can recall.
