Trivia[edit]

  • This vehicle is yet another reference to Starsky & Hutch (see Carkey & Clutch). This vehicle partially resembles their famous ride, a 1974 Ford Gran Torino, but the colours are swapped, and the original doesn't have 76 on the front.
  • The name is an amalgamation of Starsky and Hutch, but a husky is also breed of dog used for pulling sleds.
  • Flares were those nifty seventies trousers.
  • Abe L (short name "Linc") could be turned into Abel, but he must be named after US President Abraham "Honest Abe" Lincoln. It's also a homonym of "able."
  • In addition to the Gran Torino, Husky also resembles the seventies and eighties design of the Ford Lincoln town car. A Lincoln appeared in the original Carmageddon driven by Agent Orange.
