Z Cars On TV And In Movies

    Recommended Posts

    I thought that there was a forum for this though did not see it nor could I find a related thread so I'm starting one.

     

    I recently saw an S30 Z car on Miami Vice season 3 episode 11 about 30-33 minutes in (on the TV version with commercials, a DVD version it will be earlier that this of course).  In this video it is about 27-28 minutes in:  https://www.nbc.com/classic-tv/miami-vice/video/forgive-us-our-debts/n30591

    Actually there is a search option on IMBD that has a big list, here is the link!

    There are 1st gen Zs in Top Gun, Mission Impossible, Herbie, Criminal Minds, etc...

    There's like 7 pages there of Zs!

    In Cars 2 there are at least 5 S30's in the background When they go to the Japan Grand Prix. The gongs in the opening ceremony are Datsun hubcaps.

    "Ok GOOGLE 240Z in the movie "TOP GUN". My link doesn't work and "DANNO" in the television series Hawaii Five O" drove an anniversary edition ZX Black & Gold. A sweet machine

    This is resurrecting  a semi-old thread, but I was watching The Rookie TV show tonight and was glad to see that S30s (in this case a 280Z) are still alive in new TV shows!

    And I'm glad to see that the captain of a Firefly class starship can appreciate riding in an S30!  🙂

    Iv'e been watching first season (1977 I think) CHiP's episodes on Amazon and there's so many awesome cars on the freeways and general traffic. So far Iv'e seen at least five S30's. One thing I thought was funny was that gasoline stations had prices of 57 cents per gallon. I remember when my dad was furious when it hit $1.00.

    I can remember paying 27¢ when I was in high school. I could cruise the whole weekend for less than $5.

    Not to play "Can You Top This", but 1972, Topeka Kansas, gas wars, 23¢ a gallon.  When the gas stations weren't trying to put each other out of business by selling at rock bottom prices, the price would go back up to about 32¢ per gallon.

    I might take a 2+2 if it had that feature...
