If you watch old re-runs of "CHiPs" you sometimes see the Z.

You see a small glimpse of a 280ZX in "The Postman" with Kevin Costner; near the beginning when he's in the service station.:cross-eye

A 240z features very prominately in the movie Capricorn One, about How the USA faked a mission to Mars, and planned to kill the astronaults and say they got killed during re-entry to Earths atmosphere. Based on the conspiracy theory about man never really landing on the moon.

It's stars Elliot Gould, and at the end of the movie he's rushing around in a 240z. (might be a 260 or a 280, but its the 240z shape, not a 2+2)

Inner space, features a wicked mustang, but in the background of one fo the scenes you see a 240z going by.

and I saw an episode of sliders, and I'm pretty sure they blew up a dastun roadster. Bad people, that they are.

I think there is a 280 in a movie called something summer or summer something. It's about a highschool kid that makes a hot rod corvette in shop class I think it was gold. And it gets stolen. So he goes on and adventure to find his car in Las Vegas where someone saw it. But it ends up being a hot rod 280z. Still can't remember the name of the movie.

"Corvette Summer" I believe. Starring Mark Hamil (sp) AKA "Luke Skywalker."

P.S. That was one of the ugliest Corvettes I've ever seen. :sick:

In Speed Starring Keanu Reaves and Sandra Bullock there's 2 Z's a 240z and a 280zx.

The 240z is seen around the start of the movie when there's lots of highway action and keanu first get's on the bus. The 280zx is on a tow truck and the bus actually knocks it off and over the truck and it smashes hard on the ground shame really as it was in good condition and would have bent the chassis like a banana.

I forget which Corey, and which flick.. i think it was "License to Drive" - Corey Feldmans(?) "mum" drove a 240.. A sweet silver one and his Dad says "Are you still driving this japanese piece of crap?" and then she realises she left the iron on and absolutely fangs all the way home! Thats all I can remember, but its stuck in my mind since I was a kid!!

I saw one in "Commando" with Arnold. It's the scene where that yellow Porche drives into the Galleria mall parking lot. When he gets it parked there is a red 240 that drives by.

I remember the 280ZX in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The sleazy electronics salesman who takes Jennifer Jason Leigh out for a "date". It's that copper color if I recall it correctly.
