J.J. Starbuck

Texas billionaire J.J. Starbuck drives around the country in a 1961 Lincoln convertible, with horns on the hood, acting as a private detective solving crimes. He charms the police and anyone else in his way and never charges the victims anything for solving the crime. In 1988, he acquired an assistant, "Tenspeed" Turner, a con man who helps him J.J. out, often in a disguise.
