    Speaking of Herbie...... I just recently took my 11-year old twin daughters to see the brand new Herbie movie and there was a badly-faded yellow 280Z in the movie. The 280Z was in a demolition derby type of event of all things, trying to crush Herbie. There was also a '04 GT0 (without the hood scoops), a '05 Corvette (both of which were driven by Matt Dillon), a '66 or '67 GTO and a bunch of other cars. The movie had some NASCAR racing in it with a lot of special effects.

    Back in the early 80's, Benson & Hedges were giving away a 280ZX to the player of the series for a cricket series over here. I saw it in the background on a replay last year and nearly creamed myself.

    Nissan are also replaying a 350Z ad at the moment showing the history of the Zed with a few 240/260 photos followed by a side profile of the 280ZX, Z31 and Z32.

    Yeah I saw someone selling the Benson and Hedges 280zx in the trading post a couple of years back. I'd be interested in seeing some early 80's cricket footage with the ZX being given away .

    I don't know if it['s been mentioned yet, but there is an old 280z in the movie Friday after next, with Ice Cube. It's in the driveway of the delapidated house the thief is staying in.
    I drive a Z because there simply weren't enough station wagons to go around.

    Default No Eastwood fans, eh?

    Can't believe no one has posted this one yet....
    In "Every which way but loose", right before the truck chase scene w/ the cycles, there is a dark blue 240Z parked in the used car lot.

    Speaking of Herbie. Bullet was on the TV the other night, so I waited for the chase scene, which is pretty good, unless you pay any attention to it.

    They should have been driving the green VW beelte. It must have been pretty quick if both the black charger and the mustang had to over take it 3 or 4 times.

    Didn't spot any Z's though. I think the movie was made before the Z was released. There was a yellow porsche 356 in it though.

    Didn't go back to read entire thread again, so don't know if this Made for TV movie with a former Charlie's Angel was mentioned, but there is a DVD with a 240Z in it for sale on eBay right now at: http://cgi.ebay.com/Death-Car-on-the...QQcmdZViewItem

    Movie is probably about as good as the plot sounds, so I think I'll keep my money, but someone might be curious enough here to bid. Gary

    Has anyone mentioned the first "Back to the Future" movie. A red 240Z or maybe a 280Z is parked in front of the arobic center as "Marty" skates by on the back of the Jeep.

    there is a red one in the first back to the future movie, i think its the first one anyway, not to mention i'm biased to thinking a silver 280zx would have made a better time traveller, and it would've gotten to 88 mph quicker lol

    Theres a 280zx in the background of Top Gun. The part where Tom Cruise is getting chased his bike by the chick. When she pulls up and he starts yelling at her, focus on the background, youll see the beautiful outline of the car coming up the street with the sun in the background..

    Sweet.

    Watchin it on TV now.

    Its a red S30 of some sort. Its in the street. when Marty skates like you said, and you see it again later, when he's talking to his girlfriend, but they sit on a bench and block it out, then the woman comes up to them for a donation to the save the clock thing.

    I've watched BTTF probably 5 times and never seen it. I was watching Fletch the other day (Chevy Chase), and I believe there is a 280Z on the highway that Chevy roars past in an Alpha Romeo during a chase scene. Only on screen for a second, and it was on network so I couldn't rewind to confirm...

    One more for this thread - in the recent "Devil's Rejects", there is a nice silver S30Z parked outside the big black guy's strip joint, which you can see when the family arrives at night.

    Though, don't watch the movie if all you want to see is the Z. It's pretty messed up.

    Anyone remember the Herbie movie where he wins the Indianapolis 500 (I think). Prior to that he was in a demolition derby and there was a couple of scenes that showed a 240Z racing around that didn't seem to have any damage.

    Can you believe fair dinkum race cars being beaten by a flying fart ???.

    So she agreed to sell her soul to the devil as well as have sex with him for a ZX? Might have been worth it if the car was like a completed version of a car as early as 26thZ's cars.

    I searched this thread for a match for "Lords of Dogtown" and didnt find one. So anyway in this movie when the three main characters are skateboarding down the street between cars stopped at a light, they whiz past an S30 Z car. I paused on the frame but couldnt quite make out exactly which model it was.

    FWIW,

    Was watching "Without a trace". was the one where the FBI guys brother goes missing after a deal to buy a panel beaters shop goes pear shaped.

    In one of the flashbacks at the panel shop, some guys are pushing an orange car out of the shop, you only see the top half of the car, but i'm pretty sure its a S30 Z 2 seater.

    There's a dark brown 280Z (or 260, it has lights in the grille) in the 1985 movie "Fletch" with Chevy Chase. It's in the highway scene where he's running from the cops after stealing the Alfa roadster.

    You on'y see it for a couple seconds, but you can keep catching glimpses of it as the reuse the same footage over and over during the high speed chase.

    Saw the beginning of Quincy MD on late night TV, and thought I'd have a look out for a Z. It was an episode abut vigalanties driving around causing problems. Saw a TA22 celica, then there was a silver 240Z parked in the background a minute later. Then I stopped watching it.

    Default Here's what I remember

    Here's a few that I remember:

    Movies
    I'm gonna git you sucka - there's a scene where Keenan wayans is outside at night and two guys are shooting at him from the top of a building. The car parked in front of the building is a 260 or 280z. It has 280zx rims, a front and rear spoiler, it was bumperless, and was black (or some dark color - it was night time).

    E.T. - there's a 260 or 280z (i forget...its been awhile) that's parked in the street as the kids are walking or riding their bikes to or from school. I think it was brown or orange..but I forget.

    TV Shows
    Punked - the episode where they punk Kanye West. They were filming in a desert type area, and one of the cars parked (probably belonging to a crew member or extra) was a red 280zx.

    Songs
    Kanye West - that one gold digger song, he has a line where he says something like "turn the car into a Benz from a Datsun" or something like that.

    Gonna make it to a Benz outta that Datsun"

    Although neither the song or video refer to WHAT Datsun, it's nice to turn on the radio and hear someone say it.

    Default Quick one in Dr. Doolittle

    I was watching Dr. Dolittle with one of my kids, and just about 30 seconds from the end of the movie, they are walking down a street, and if you look down the street to the cross street at the end, parked along the cross street is a Z. It was a first-gen Z, but I couldn't tell if it was a 240 or 280 or what, since 1) I was too surprized, and 2) it is only on for a couple of seconds.

    Yes there is - and if you watch the out-takes at the end you'll see it close up. It looks like a clean 2+2.

    Not a movie, but in the game Command & Conquer: Generals there are civilian cars that I'm sure are based on the 240Z.

    It's a '75 or '76 280Z 2+2.

    As far as I remember, two or three robots from "Transformers" were based on 280Z's. I used to watch it as a kid - the police Z was the coolest one. ;-)

    just saw a commercial for nowwhat.com (insurance site) that features the stripped out shell of a Z. The car has a beuatiful dash, but the rest of it is missing.

    Some good places to catch glimpes of Z's are the 80's TV shows. I've spotted several in the Knight Rider show, first season.

    Just saw the original Gone in 60 Seconds and during the Mustang chase they drive by a Datsun office/factory building. It's right before they get to the Mazda dealership.

    Was watching an old Perry Mason and when it ended Matlock came on (hate to admit that I didn't turn it right away, I am not that old) and I looked up and someone drove up in what looked like a 280Z (yellow or mustard gold), it was night and it looked like it had the bigger bumpers. Now I have to watch the whole episode to see if it shows up again. Episode called "The Nurse" from 1987.

    Just rented Fast and the Furious 3, Tokyo Drift-no Z's were damaged in the making of that film, nor were any present. There were a couple of very nice Skylines (both old and new!) so that's ok. The rest of the movie wasn't, IMO.

    Cool site, found two in one shot-
    converted 240 in the foreground, and I'm pretty sure that's a 280 zx in the upper left corner (look at the front bumper and the 3/4)

    Default Found 280Z in movie...

    I was thumbing thru the channels the other day. On ESPN Classic, a movie called "One on One" with non other than Robbie Benson (remember him). He was a midwest high school basketball player recruited by a Los Angeles college basketball team. Recruiter promises him whatever car he wanted. Next scene shows him pulling out of his driveway in a red 280Z. The scenes of him driving to LA must have lasted at least a couple of minutes. Pretty awesome.

    All the President's Men had several, though I think they were the same, just filmed from different angles, mostly overhead shots down into a parking lot, or head angle shots for city driving-one each-green, red, brown (or blue).

    Commando-several of differing years (i.e. 240-260-280z, 280zx, plus some other nice cars)

    Smile

    In the new movie remake of The Italian Job staring Mark Walhberg and Hot Chic Charlize Theron
    Through out the whole movie there are classic Datsun 240Z's and Mazda RX-7's all over the place.
    Other Old school imports too!

    Rented the DVD and I didn't notice at first untill after I watched it the 2nd time around when a sceen showing the outside of a crooked guys pawn shop had a white 240 roll right in front of the camera. I rewinded and sho nuff it was a Z!

    So I kept watching the flick and noticed many more Z's and 1st gen RX-7's making appearences.
    At the end of the flick during a traffic jam sequence it shows a sky shot of an intersection where pretty much every car that was either in the background or parked some where making one last Grande Finale!

    Also if you look closer during the whole movie you'll see some new school rides too
    It's an awesome flick that was really made by some car guys like us who paid
    extra special attention to details like that. And like I said theres a HOT CHIC TOO ^_^

    There was a white Z in traffic at the end of Blazing Saddles when Cleavon Little comes out of the movie house on his horse. It is 2 or 3 cars back.

    Didn't re-read this whole thread to see if anyone mentioned it (did a search though), but there was a gold 280ZX in 'The Office' tonight. It looked in good shape. Parked next to Pam's car if your familiar with the show.

    (Corrections):
    -The film "Boogie Nights" features a red 280ZX. Not a 240Z. sorry!
    -The Z in "Back To The Future" parked outside the aeroybics gym is an orange 240Z.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++


    -There are a clutch of red 240Z's however in some Chinese Jackie Chan movie, where the Z's are the bad guys' rides.

    -In the Woodie Allen film "Annie Hall" the title character drives a gold 280Z.

    -There are actually 4 Z Cars that I am aware of from the Transformers:
    Prowl 280ZX
    Bluestreak 280ZX
    Smokescreen 280ZX racer
    and a Protectobot (can't remember his name) 300ZX (Z31) police car

    -In Knight Rider 2000 K.I.T. is converted from a Trans-Am to a 300ZX.

    ...............just kidding.

    "Invasion of the body snatchers" (1978? version) - Donald Sutherland and his love interest are driving downtown early in the film, talking about Erwin Rummell (?) - They pass a Z on the left side of the street. I went back and zoomed - pretty blurry and the kids gave me greif, so I dropped it. Couldn't tell which year.

    Alpha Dog, during the street fair (?), around the time when they go into the store for drinks...
    The screen goes so quickly, I couldn't see what model, but it is an S30, not an S130.

    One good place to see Z's (I see at least one in most every episode) is 'Rockford Files'. It's on the Sleuth Channel, every morning I think.

    Just caught part of what I believe was an insurance commercial - see how much attention I pay to TV ads - in it is what appears to be a red or reddish-orange 260/280Z that has been stripped. No doors. Car is in a back lot with what looks like a For Sale sign on the windshield. I think one guy was showing the other guy the car. He says something like "They didn't get the stereo." Seems to make him happy. Funny, I had just flashed on thinking of Z's in commercials and this one comes up. It shows the car for such a short period I hope they run it again so I can check it out better and find out what the commercial actually is. The car looked like a 2+2 from the little I saw of it.

    It wasn't a movie, but on the History Chanel, Modern Marvels, "Cemeterys", the portion explaining headstones and how just about anything could be put on a stone. The narrator asks, "Care for a Datsun 280Z on your headstone?" Then the camera shows a 280Z carved in profile on the stone.

    YEP, it's an insurance commercial and a 2+2. Jus check the
    bumpers nex time to see if it is a 260Z or 280Z

Didn't watch the whole movie. Also thought I'd include an image of the poster/VHS cover from the 1979 B Movie starring one-time Charlie's Angel Shelley Hack called Death Car on the Freeway that's supposed to have a Z in it. Found the image on eBay. Wish I'd had a 240Z back in 1979 when I was a senior in high school.

    Just as Ricky Bobby is leaving the hotel where his father is (Bobby delivered pizzas there), you can see a Z31 in the parking lot with its T tops out.

    Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
    There are a couple Z cars in this on, but you've got to be quick to see them
    The first is visible as the helicopter (opening sequence) is setting down.
    The second is seen later on, but I don't recall just where.

    I just watched the original gone in 60 seconds too. Was cool to see the Datsun office and Mazda dealership with the RX-3's in the showroom.

    There was a green 1200 coupe at carwash when they stole the tv stars car (I forget his name, I'd never heard of him anyway), and I spotted a few 240z's in the street driving scenes, most of them parked.

    But more interesting to me was, why was there a blue 240Z in their warehouse of stolen cars? It's not on the list of cars they were supposed to steal in the movie. Maybe it was originally but never made it into the movie, apart from being parked in the warehouse. Or maybe it belonged to someone associated with the movie, or was just a customers car that was in the guys shop at the time they made the movie. (The guy that made the movie ran a repair shop, and thats where the shop scenes were filmed).

    You only see it for a second after the mustang drives past it, when they are going to dump the mustang.

    On mythbusters the blonde chick has a 260 or 280. You get a good view when they test out the myth of a toy car vs a viper. Dunno if anyone mentioned that one already.

    Saw another one in the intro for Spike Tv's Worlds Most Amazing Videos. Was racing a rally and looked like it was going out of control. Was a 260 or 280 i believe.

    Yeah, I saw it a couple of days ago. It was a commercial for Allstate Insurance Co. for their website, Nowwhat.com. I think it was about a guy showing off his car ( 260 or 280 2+2) to a friend and finding it completely stripped and on blocks. It's funny,I had just finished reading this thread earlier when I saw it.

    I remember a few years ago my younger two kids were watching either TV Land or Cartoon Network or one of these channels and an old forgotten show called "Sigmund and the Sea Monsters" from the early-to-mid '70's was on. I vaguely remember this show as a kid. It had Johnny Whitaker from the old "Family Affair" TV show and some other blond kid. Anyways, the episode I saw a few moments of had Johnny and the blond kid secretly escorting a green sea monster across the street in what looked like a small California coastal town. They walked by a 240Z that was parked on the street.

    Default 240Z / 250 GTO replica in Delirious with John Candy

    I'm still watching "DILIRIOUS" with John Candy and Merial Hemmingway. Comedy Central (Ch 60) Made in 1991. 1 hour? into the movie, John Candy offers his Ferreri 250 GTO for a fund raising auction.

    It's a 240Z / 250 GTO Replica, but it's a beautiful one. Just look at the door to fender lines. They drive the car for about five minutes of the movies, some of the driving is done blind folded, thru curvy twisting mountain roads, with a lot of sliding around corners. Thought I'd share and did'nt want to read thru 195? pages to see if it was mentioned already.

    In Friday after Next there's a broken down completely rusted 280z sitting in a front yard when they are chasing the bad santa. Also in the first episode of Knight Rider (Part 1) you can see i think a white 240z in the backround.
