    You can see a Zed in an old mythbusters episode. They drive to the abandoned naval base, probably to blow something up, the person is swerving around a whole lot; it's kinda dark, but there's no mistaking that front end. You see it later from the back near the storage container, white, with hatch louvers (240, right?). Maybe it was the chicken gun or the pigs ina vette' myth. Never seen it again after that and the toy car myth....
    On Saturdays and Sundays, if you watch the car shows on Spike, there is a Wyotech commercial with a brown 280ZX in a lot of cars inside a shop.

    I think the white 280Z belongs to one of the ladies on the show. They used the car in their HOT WHEELS show as well. They lifted the back of the car with a fork lift so they could wrap the drivers side wheel with tape, and see how many MPH the hot wheels cars could handle before they lost control.

    Same episode with the HOt Wheels racing a Viper, down hill. Scale racing or something.
    pretty funny stuff.

    How about the Mobil 1 commercial during the last few Nascar races. There is a minivan with a number on it and for a brief moment a 240Z goes by in the scene . Slotted mags and side molding is what I noticed.

    I just caught a glimpse of the rear end of a Z in the tv ad for OTIS.

    A Z is beautiful from any angle, I just happen to prefer to view from the drivers' seat!

    One of the "nowwhat.com" (Farmers Insurance) shows an orange one. A buddy wants to show his "mint condition" new car to him, only when they return to the parking lot it's totally stripped and up on blocks. BTW, the car totally wasn't mint before the stripping.

    I saw that one on TV the other day. The car appeared to be a stripped and gutted 2+2. My wife even commented that at least they didn't trash a coupe...

    How could you guys call yourself Z lovers and not mention the Wangan Midnight Live Action Movie. It stars a perfect replica of the "Devil Z" built by Speed Shop Shinohara. Since then the actual SSS 240z has vanished, no one on the internet really knows what happened to it. The movies pretty old, made in the early 90's if not late 80s, you would be hard pressed to find an actual copy of the film these days (I found one at a flea market for 50cents) but if im not mistaken there are a handful of full lengths posted on various sites. The original video tape I have is in pretty bad shape due to magnetic degration but its still viewable. Theres some mash ups of it as well, heres the only one I know of http://youtube.com/watch?v=Cp9_-QrnPws

    How can you call yourself a Z lover and think there was only one Live action movie? They made lots of them, and they are not hard to find, you just order the 11 DVD box set from Japan

    Then theres the new anime version....

    But did you notice that "they" left a perfect dash in place? Obviously the "thieves" didn't know the true value of that one part...

    The producers of the up coming Harvey Milk movie used my Z for backround (70s orange). I hope it makes it into the final cut.

    Default Ok, so it's an s130, but still

    You've got to have a quick eye for this one:

    Office Space.

    For those of you with the dvd, go to chapter 28 (they are discussing the software mistake while going down the freeway), and hit your slow button at 1:05 to 1:06, that's right ONE SECOND. There is a yellow s130 in the background behind the main character's head.
    This is what happens when you've seen a movie too many times...

    This wasn't in the movies, but on 8-17-08, the program "CBS News Sunday Morning", was doing a story on how China was importing everything. About half way through they said, "remember the early 70's when Japan started importing cars in great numbers?" They then showed photos and films of acres of Z-Cars sitting at the docks, Z-Cars at the dealership and some Z-Cars driving on the freeway. They were only on for about 20 seconds but great to see them. I thought it was unusual to show ONLY Z-Cars.

    Also not in the movies, but....

    On Saturday Night Live, in the 80's?? They did a "MR. Bill" skit where Mr. Bill is placed in his travel Trailer and Mr. Hand says "we're gonna go for a little ride" Much to Mr. Bills dismay. Mr. Hand ties a rope to the trailer and the next scene is a 280Z doing doughnuts in the parking lot with the trailer attached and the playdough dog is being drug behing the trailer as well.

    It was a short movie but it was a Z and on TV. so does it count? Of coarse it does.

    A few weeks ago i was watching cops and someone had stolen a z31 and i cant remember what the cops said but it was something along the lines of this guy has stolen a high performance Nissan. needless to say the cops completly destoryed the car by throwing out spike strips and then using the pit maneuver on it sending it flying off the road. at least it was a z31 and not a 240.

    In the pilot episode of the incredible hulk Dr Elaina marks is driving a gold Z or ZX and the car that Dr David banner trashes when he turns into the hulk for the first time is an early model (ta22?) toyota celica.My car has featured in a music clip for some unknown local band.it was quite rediculous really because they were cramming three people into the front of my poor little car!!! they then had to get out looking all cool...

    I can't beleive nobody has wrote about the 240Z on the new sitcom "TESTIES" The main guys are in a hurry to get out of town and all of a sudden you see tires squeeling and the camera backs around the corner to see a 240Z sliding around a corner, no swaybar, body roll and twisting as it slides, burning tires and takes off down the road. Then the camera focuses on the two main characters in a P.O.S. Ford Fiesta?

    Channel 53 on Comcast FX-West tonight at 10:30. Not the episode with the 240Z but a Dumb/Funny show none the less. Here's a link to the 15 second seen.

    I think that's what I said? I also put in a link to the exact 15:45 time frame. I was wrong on the correct spelling at first, though.

    I'm guessing that the way film crews take forever to take "the Shot" The Z probably did that shot a few times before they got it right and in the process, the coolant was ready to "swap out" at the time they hit the corner.

    Questions is how many times they shot that and how long did they amke him wait to do the stunt and how hot was it.

    Or maybe he lost the lid on his overflow bottle with all the jerking around.

    Was watching a show on PBS last night and they had a documentary-type program on about the Swinomish Native American reservation around Anacortes, WA. At one point they talk about all the cars that are left to rust away on the res, and the first car they pan to is a Z. It was pretty quick but I'm pretty sure it was an S130 (280ZX).

    Slap shot, aka: the world's greatest hockey movie.

    The team is sitting in a bar (in the middle of the day), drinking beer and watching soap operas. If you listen to the soap opera, it's about a guy who has just recovered from amnesia... the conversation...

    Guy: You SOLD my car?

    Girl: Don't you remember? You gave me power of attorney when you had amnesia.

    Guy: You SOLD my 260z?!?!?! But... but.. that was MY car!

    There is a white 280z following a red 240z in Leathel Weapon where Riggs and Roger are sitting on the car eating. You see them driving past.

    Default 280Z in movie from 1978

    I don't know if any one has mentioned this movie. I was watching this movie on Sunday and woke up just in time to see the car.

    Capricorn One with Elliott Gould and Karen Black from 1978. It is about a manned mars mission that goes bad. Towards the end of the movie Elliott Gould borrows Karen Blacks car and it's looks like a 1976 or 77 red 280Z. It does not have the 240 or the 79 bumpers so it has to be a 75 through 78. It is in the last scene in the background.

    Testees??? I'm not touching that one.

    Watched the original version (UK) of Life on Mars, no Zeds in that. US might be different, but after watching the pilot US version, didn't want to watch any more of them.

    Capricorn one, yep thats been mentioned before, so has the back to the future one.

    Theres a yellow 260Z in the movie Chopper, staring Eric Bana, before he became known in the US. Probably been said before too.

    The new videogame Midnight Club: Los Angeles has a playable 1975 280Z.

    It's available for the PS3 and 360.

    There are a couple 240s in the original "Gone In 60 Seconds" (none were damaged in the making of the movie...) and as an added bonus, the main character drives past Datsun HQ during the big chase scene.

    My car made it into a movie. recently released on DVD, "Milk". Its a little over 14 min into the movie. Its the scene where one of the guys is dancing. He passes by in front of the window. You can see my orange Z in the backround parked across the street. If you blink youll miss it (0.5 seconds of onscreen time).

    I just saw TERMINATOR SALVATION which I thought was a pretty good flick. There is a scene in the streets around Los Angeles after 'Judgement Day' where there are a lot of abandoned, destroyed cars strewn along the street. Among them was a blue 280ZX. My wife and I were too excited seeing it that we forgot exactly which scene it was.

    I saw three s30's the other night on ONE episode of Cops.

    It was on and I hit the pause on our DVR. I cought the wheel well and wondered what it was. Then I saw a wide shot of some dumpy guy face down on the front lawn and it was parked in his driveway behind him.

    The 2nd one was some dark colored 280z that the driver and passenger bailed from at low speed to continue fleeing on foot...

    The third one was a white 240 used as a frisking table for a drunk driver. I don't know if it was his vehicle or if he was just wondering the streets, but it was in the parking lot of a Seven Eleven. hahaha...

    That vehicle in Vanilla Sky was a black Ferrari 250... although I didn't pay close attention to the side window frame and windshield. It could have been a Z conversion. I'll have to look at the movie and see, but I doubt it. That movie production actually shut down and vacated Times Square for the first time in history for the scene with that car in it, so if the producer could afford to pay those businesses, I wouldn't doubt the legitimacy of the use of a real Ferrari from a private collection, museum or high end rental lot.

    Unfortunately, I saw a 240Z get smashed by Sam Worthington in the new Terminator movie. It happens kind of quick, you got be paying attention. In the theater, I was freak'n out when I saw it. I was like,"YO, look out for that Z!"

    In the early 80's Charlie Sheen made a movie about being a Porsche thief, called (No Mans Land). There are several Z's in varying shots around the L.A. area as "they" the thieves are out and about. And to boot you get to see Brad Pitt as an extra.. he plays the roll of a waiter and he has a mulet...
    I dunno how fast I was going.... the speedo quit at 160.
    I knew it was out of oil.... it quit smoking

    Just spotted one.

    'The Cannonball Run' - After the Chevelle crashes into the pool, a Z can be seen through the wood fence when the police car drives by.

    It's white w/black louvers. I believe it's a 280 but can't be sure.

    I can't remember the name of that stupid cheerleader movie with Kristen Dunst but there was a great scene with some hotties in bikini's washing a 240z. I think it was red. been a long time but I do remember that scene

    Edit:

    The coolest Datsun cameo is in the movie "American Psycho II" In the first 20 minutes, the teacher (first victim) drives away in a perfect orange 510!!! I was blown away why they would have chosen that car. Must be one of the producers cars. I couldn't watch the movie anymore though b/c it was so terrible.

    While not in the movies, my son and I witnessed a Z31 the other night running at high speed with lights off from 6 cops and CHPs on local city streets. I wonder if he got away or wrecked it....

    In the latest mobile one commercial, a minivan with nascar style numbers on the side is driving left across the screen for the first 10 seconds or so.

    About 5-7 seconds in, when the camera gets closest to the van, a green Z speed by in the opposite direction between the camera and the van.

    Yup, been covered about 100 times. I don't seriously expect anyone to read all 26 pages but I promise, it's been mentioned to death. That commercial is about 2 or 3 years old. JFYI.

    "Just saw a beautiful 908 240Z with Rewinds on Crimiinal Minds-the opening was a pretty redhead looking through the want ads, finding a 240Z and going for her last testdrive!
    Will"

    Not the wrong thread Will. I just literally saw the exact scene you mentioned and was telling my wife "Hunny, look at the 240Z" She's all "Where?" as she's looking outside. No sill on TV. If she did'nt love the show so much, I never would have caught it.

    Also, it's a series 1 with hatch vents and shaved quarter emblems. Beautiful car though and has Washington State Plates.

    That was the first episode of that series. Someone posted this thread when it first aired in 2005.

    There have been a couple of posts on this thread regarding 'That '70s Show'. Well, here's a picture of a 240Z taken from one of the episodes:

    Default 240z in movies

    I tried searching but couldn't find the thread about seeing z cars in movies. I recently had the pleasure of watching the movie Black Dynamite. It is a spoof of the blaxploitation movies of the 70's and pretty funny. I highly recommend it. Anyway, there is a scene where the main character is talking with two young girls and they both say that their moms told them their dad is named Black Dynamite (funny). In the background, there is what looks like a brown 240z.

    I searched for the word "movies" and found the previous thread easy enough. I'll merge this thread into the old one, as there's no need for two threads on this, especially when they have the exact same title...

    While not actually seen, it is mentioned on the television sitcom "Two and a Half Men" that Evelyn Harper, Charlie & Alan's mother, once owned a Datsun 280Z.


    Charlie: Hey.
    Alan: Hey, what are you doing home?
    Charlie: Linda's spending time with her son tonight.
    Apparently she's one of those single moms that puts her kid first.
    Alan: The bitch.
    Charlie: You're just saying that because our mom put us third.
    Alan: Fourth after she got the Datsun 280Z.

    I haven't read all the posts on this thread, and I think I actually remember seeing it posted SOMEWHERE (might have its own thread, or even in the barn finds thread, not sure).

    I was watching a "Chasing Classic Cars" episode, where wayne is invited to check out an old vintage motorcycle collection. After checking out the motorcycles, Wayne was on his way up to another room in the shop to check out a vintage Ferrari race car, when the camera glimpsed what looked to be an early 240Z. This guy DEFINATELY had good taste!!!

    FYI, I forget what model and year the Ferrari was, but i think I remember the guys widow saying that he had purchased it in the '70's for something like $15,000.00 and it is now estimated to be worth millions!!!!

    There was a Z on Chasing Classic Cars last night, which was a new episode. Wayne went to look at an old Mercedes 300SL and they mentioned the guy had a car collection and they zoomed in a on 240z(I think) and there was a ZX next to it.

    The Bionic Woman drove a 280Z. Lindsay is the best. I have to get her autograph my Zs.

    A red 280z in Capricorn One, circa 1978. OJ Simpson was in it (the movie) among others.

    I watched that episode last night too,,,I even had to rewind to get a second look. It was most likely a 70 or 71 Series I. And the other was def. a 280ZX.

    OK not a 240Z but a 280Z. Anyone watching Dateline tonight heard about the two brutal murderers, Ake and Hatch, that stole a Datsun 280Z from one of their home raid victims, and eventually used it to outrun Colorado police. Eventually, the car got stuck in the driveway to a Farmhouse, in the snow I think, where they were apprehended.

    There is a movie coming out about one of the families that was victimized. I am not sure if they will re-enact the 280Z scenes, as that crime was committed years later.

    Very sad story.

    Smile Wangan Midnight

    Wangan Midnight is a Japanese manga (anime) series featuring the 'Devil Z' that is a Datsun 240z. It was also made into a non-anime movie in 2010 but doesn't appear to be available in the USA yet. The anime episodes are fun to watch too

    I went to see "Cars 2" in 3D with my wife and 3 of our 4 kids last night and saw several 240Zs or perhaps they were Fairladys (since they were in Japan during this part of the movie), it was tough to tell especially wearing the 3D glasses!

    Yeah man I saw them too! My wife thought I was going nuts because I pointed out every one I saw... pretty sure there were 5 seperate ones. I assumed they were Fairlady Z's as well

    In the movie Slapshot, there is a scene where the team is sitting aroung drinking, in the afternoon, at the local bar. Some of the guys are watching a soap opera on T.V. in the bar and in the soap opera, one of the characters mentions that some evil broad sold her boyfriends' 260Z (apparantly without his knowledge or permission.)

    I recently rented "Grand Prix" on DVD. I obviously did not expect to see any z cars since the movie takes place in 1966. However, on disk 2 there are bonus features about the making of the movie. There is an interview with Bob Bondurant and he's sitting in front of a 240z!

    He said "but that was my....car" The funny part is he was wearing a straight jacket when he said it. And if you are a true Z freak you know that Slap Shot is a Paul Newman classic and we know how Paul felt about Z-cars, RIP Paul.

    I just watched Hall Pass last night. It was marginally entertaining, but there wasn't much to choose from at the local Kiosk that I hadn't already viewed. Near the end when Owen Wilson is leaving a party to tend to an injured wife, a DJ in the movie who is out for revenge hops into a what looks like a blue '72 240z with white interior. You don't quite see the whole car, but enough obviously. The car is only seen for a few seconds and that's it.

    In a movie called Dreamscape (one of my fav's) there was a Z car. I was watching it a few months ago, and for the first time I saw a z go driving by. I was like..wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwhatt....rewind that for a second.

    If you have netflix, you can stream it. Its towards the beginning of the movie after Dennis Quaid is running away from some thugs....and there the Z car goes driving right thru the middle of the movie screen. nice!

    The picture below was taken from Dreamscape. Is this the 280Z you were referring to?

    Morphing Z in The Fury (1978).

    Starts out as a 280Z but changes to a 240Z and then back to a 280Z as the actors run past!

    And they thought no one would notice...

    Not sure if it's been said before.... We were watching "Blazing Saddles" and when they all come running out of the studio and onto the streets, there is a 240Z driving towards them in the traffic.

    1974??? Film...

    Saw what appeared to be an orange 240z in Back to the Future Part 1 last night in the beginning when Marty is skateboarding through the town square.

    Do you know where my Grandpa's 240z is? He sold it around 1994. I think it was a 72. It was orange with black interior and some sort of scissors style aftermarket crank up sunroof. I think it was sold to a fellow pharmacist and I think he was from Egg Harbor Wisconsin. At the time the car had between 32-36k original miles. He sold it for the lowly sum of $3000-$3500. My grandpa passed away a few years ago and I would like to know its whereabouts.

    Dunno if someone has already said this but i found a old TV movie called Death Car on the freeway and the main character drives a 240Z. You can watch the whole movie on Youtube. There is lot of old Japs in this film.
