*Note: Seasons 2 thru 8 his business address is 17 Paseo Verde.

Mike Connors real name is Krekor Ohanian, Nationality is Armenian, born Aug 15, 1925

In the first year of the show, when he worked for Intertech, Mannix, Joe drove a George Barris-customized convertible
Oldsmobile Toranado. AMT or MPC made a model of it. When he quit Intertech, he went downhill and drove various Dodge
Challengers and Darts for the rest of the series.

A little trivia about Mannix, CBS wanted to cancel the show into it's second season, but Lucille Ball pulled strings
because it was her favorite show and being CEO of Desilu she pulled it off, they did however ask her to tone down the
violence! (At that time Mannix was said to be the most violent show on TV!)

Tom Joyce says: (December 16, 2011)
"You list that Joe Mannix drove Challengers and Dodges. In truth he never drove a Challenger, it was Plymouth Barracuda's
70 and 71 model. The Dodge dart he drove was for real just modified a little. All were green with a black convertible top."
