240Z in movies

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.

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.

Watching "Back to the Future" (1st one). In the begining scenes where Marty is skateboarding behind cars, there ia s red 240Z (with louvers) on the street shown twice.

Did a search of the archives but did not get any hits for "Back to the Future"

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.

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 <a href=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0480687/>Hall Pass</a> 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?

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.

Here is the final (7/7) part
