I did a little checking into this, and I sort of convinced myself that there was ANOTHER Jack Webb (not of Dragnet fame) that was at one time a relatively high ranking person in POCA.
While I wanted it to be true, I could never make the "Dragnet" connection.
I would be happy to be proven wrong...
"Jack Webb?" I asked. To which he replied, "just the facts, ma'am."
So I assumed it was the actor. I never heard of him as a famous Pantera owner before and was curious if anyone knew of this.

Your story is way better than mine! Hopefully someone who knows will chime in here!
The name has changed, to protect the innocent!"

12 and Emergency fame owned a yellow Pantera, does any know anything more, serial #?
Just the facts, please.

quote:Sorry - no. Mr. Webb, like a lot of Hollywood types that own or once owned Panteras, are not joiners. The only Webb in POCA was Larry who once lived in San Jose but he was never Club President. FWIW_ J DeRyke
So this still leaves open the possibility that Jack Webb, of Dragnet Fame, Badge No. 714 owned a Pantera.
Hopefully someone has more hard evidence. I can't get a conviction on this flimsy testimony - it's hearsay.

I just saw this post, but if anyone is still interested.
I worked at “Ford Auto Body” on Sepulveda Blvd about 1974.
Jack Webb brought in a yellow Pantera that we custom painted Black for a birthday present for his daughter. He was there many times and was a perfectionist.
We repainted it three times until every inch was prefect.
He was always a nice guy!
Thanks for that. Pantera mysteries are timeless.
Sounds like this case is closed!
This is very cool because Jerry is able to tie the black and yellow cars together with his testimony!
It would be cool to see a picture of Joe Friday and Bill Gannon roaring down the streets of the city in a Pantera!
