The car the group is seen driving around in is a 2010 or 2011 Camaro LT with a V6 engine, the RS performance package, and police lights added to the front end. McGarrett is seen numerous times driving the Camaro, although it's Danno's car. GM's Chevrolet Division is the motor vehicle provider. On Hawaii Five-O
(1968), Ford Motor Company was the provider, with Ford Division and Mercury Division vehicles being used by Five-O personnel. However, the lead vehicle was always Jack Lord
McGarrett's Mercury. For most of the first seven seasons of Hawaii Five-O (1968), Steve's car was a black on black (sometimes referred to as "triple black") 1968 Mercury Parklane Brougham four-door. The Park Lane was last used during the eleventh season of Hawaii Five-O (1968), where it sat in a warehouse for several years, the Park Lane sedan used in the early seasons was restored, and now is in the hands of a Chicago, Illinois resident. After season eight, McGarrett drove a 1974 Mercury Marquis Brougham hardtop sedan, and after Hawaii Five-O (1968) ended its run in 1980, Jack Lord gave the Marquis to his stunt double, John Boley Nordlum. On this show, that same car make, model, and color, 1974 Mercury, is shown being stored in the garage of Steve's house, and Steve explains to Danno that his father had been restoring the old Mercury before he was kidnapped. This is a tribute to the famous car McGarrett used in the later seasons of Hawaii Five-O (1968). See more
