The Love Bandit - A 1952 Ford sedan (license F-7193) seen on the sitcom HAPPY DAYS/ABC/1974-84. 'The Love Bandit' was owned by Richard "Richie" Cunningham (Ron Howard), who attended Jefferson High School in Milwaukee during the late 1950s.

On episode No. 18 "Richie's Car" Arthur Fonzarelli (Henry Winkler) sold Richie a hot rod car for $200 (dubbed 'The Love Bandit' by it former owner Rock Beruffi) but later heard the car was stolen.

Fearful of the law, Fonzie altered the license plate so it now read F-7498. Soon after, Richie discovered that his car was the spoils in a drag racing competition.

When Rock Beruffi gave his pink slip to the dragstrip winner, he then called his insurance company and reported the car stolen. Richie's friend, Fonzie cleared up the whole mess at the police station.

Richie was then free to go cruising for babes in 'The Love Bandit' and  listening to his favorite song lyrics like Fats Domino's "I found my thrill on blueberry hill."
