The Cars Of The O.C.: Trey and Ryan's Get Away Car Mystery Revealed!


Here it is, the first glorious minute of one of the greatest shows of all time, the famous Trey and Ryan car jacking cop chase from season 1 episode 1. I've been wanting to know for awhile now what kind of car they stole, although I never really tried looking until now...Through hours and hours of research, the staff at All Things The O.C. finally reached a conclusion - the stolen car that Trey incessantly steals is in fact a 1978 Chevy Camaro! Right off the bat, the car looked like something straight out of the 70's which helped during our research. The smaller square turn signals (near the headlights) gave it away as well as the grill...Ironically Benjamin Mckenzie (Ryan Atwood) was born in 1978 which makes him and the car the exact same age.

Furthermore check out the Camaro's licence plate as he races away nearly throwing Ryan out of the car! The license plate reads 2CON654
.

Interestingly the license plate numbers 2CON654 has been known to be attached to other productions including Axel Foley's convertible in the Beverly Hills Cop movies. It would be cool to figure out if the letters and numbers mean anything! 




So there we have it solved the mystery just like I promised! Makes you wonder what would have happened if the boy's never got caught by the police, for our sake i'm glad they did!

Where to find it: Season 1 Episode 1
