    Default I spy a Z car.

    Looks like the lead actor on the new TV show Scorpion on CBS is driving an orange or red (110 red) 77 or 78 280. It even had what looks like duct tape on the passengers seat. The rest of the car looked very good.

    FYI

    Noticed that also. Too bad it was the only good part of the show.

    I was watching the movie "Constantine" the other day. When he goes to Hell, he is walking across the top of a row of cars. One of them looked like a battered S30 Z.

    "God I hate this part..."

    Everything is on youtube! constantine visits hell - YouTube

    Is this the car you're talking about?



    I'm thinking it looks maybe more like a Triumph?

    That's what I was thinking as well, but I'm not sure if that's the car Julio was talking about. He said Constantine was walking across the top of a row of cars and that happens later in the scene.

    But this car (that you and I think looks like a spitfire?) is the only thing I saw that looked even remotely like a Z. I'm not sure if that's the car he meant.

    Yep that's the car I saw. Being able to look at it several times over, I agree it does look like a Triumph Spitfire.

    I like that movie. I don't think I ever saw it uncut though. I've only ever seen it on regular TV so I'm sure there are parts I've never seen.

    It was fun hunting for a Z. Thanks Julio!
