    Default Rocket powered 240z (Fall Guy episode)

    For all those who loved the 80's show "The Fall Guy" starring Lee Majors, check out episode 3 in season 2, at 02:40 minutes a series I 240z makes an appearance and then they jump it...I still don't know how Heather Thomas fit in the trunk! Its also interesting that its painted black, I didn't think that color was an option until the 280z Black Pearl edition came out. Enjoy!!

    Great stuff. Thanks Dave! Nice memories.

    But man, were people more gullible back then about what was acceptable levels of out right fakery and totally impossible stunts? There were about 150 obvious fake or really bad things that were just wrong with that whole sequence. Heck we could make a game our of counting the mistakes and fakes. Mind you we have Bachlorette and "America's got Talent" now, maybe nothing has improved after all....

    At 4.16 they go to small scale. I don't recall seeing that before. Good one.

    Haha. The front bumper comes off when the car nose dives, and then when they drive back the front bumper is attached again.

    Ahem the dukes of hazard proved you can make a 100ft jump and while the chassis LOOKED like it bent 30 degrees, in fact it was not and the car was freshly washed and waxed when it comes to a stop.

    It is all just simple physics really.

    I have to be honest, I watched for the blond longer than I care to admit.

    The only technical innovation of the time was the proliferation of spandex apparently. One of my favorite inventions. Thank you Dupont or whoever...

    Thanks for the reminder of how terrible 1970's TV was.

    At the 5:56 mark you can spot a silver 240Z in the background. Some other nice cars back there too.
