"This Case is Closed" Part 1 - at 08:03 as Rockford runs from the bad guys the clip shows what I believe is a '76-77-78 model Firebird (4 square headlights vs. 2 round in the '74), has to have been a scene added from a later season.

The original Air Date shows to be 10/18/74..too early for that model car. The menu also says that this originally aired as a single 90 minute episdode. Is this a case of getting what is probably the syndicated version a good thing?

Runtime for Part 1 - after the Universal logo disappears shows 50:07.

Runtime for Part 2 - after the Universal logo disappears shows 49:10.

So apparently almost 25 minutes have been added to the original telecast, yes the "Next on..." and "From last week..." will add a few minutes, but that's still a good bit of content added into the original show.
