Everyone who has seen THE MUNSTERS remembers their unique family car, THE MUNSTER
KOACH. During the May 27, 1965 episode Grandpa's new car, DRAG U LA, was introduced.
Vampires need a coffin, so the car was designed with a Gothic theme including a grill that resembles
a tombstone and exhaust pipes that look like organ pipes. The car appeared in only one episode,
"Hot Rod Herman,” where Grandpa and Herman drag race. The fan reaction was so great that
DRAG U LA was added to the end credits the following year.
George Barris designed and created both of the cars used in THE MUNSTERS. The cars appeared
in all of their movies including MUNSTER: GO HOME, THE MUNSTERS REVENGE and the FOX
HERE COME THE MUNSTERS.
