    Very cool. The Don loves his new present. That key is for a 430 though and there is no auto trunk release on a 308! LOL. Only us 308 nerds will know that though. Skip to 1:24.

    I thought I recognised the back drop... it's the Brands Hatch circuit in Kent. The couple standing with the car are on the main straight of the GP loop where it heads out into the woods.
    The film was shot in New York & London.

    While not on t.v. didn't know where else to post this so, I was leafing through a magazine yesterday and saw an ad for a cosmetic co. which iirc may of been estee lauder that had a picture of a woman sitting in a 308. It was a close up shot at the driver and I could clearly side the drivers side vent so i new it was an si and could make out part of the vent on the rear hood and it didn't look like it connected so I'm thinking maybe a euro. Couldn't tell if it had the QV wing.

    Saw a couple of episode's of the show Hunter and in one episode there was a 2valve red 308 parked on the street in the background with no plates on it. Another episode had the villianess, who was played by Lydia Cornell, driving a 328 throughout the episode.

    Some stagehand spend the day stuffed into the driver's footwell of the 308, pulling the release lever at the right time. It's great to be in showbiz!

    I also noticed in that scene that the luggage bay was covered in leather. It looked really sharp. Was that a factory option on some 3x8 series?

    Another episode of Hunter in the beginning the bad guys rob a jewelry store and hop in a 308 and take off. It was a QV but it sounded like they dubbed in the sound of a carb. car. Episode is waiting for Mr. Wrong.

    Also some interior shots at 5:20 in above video, as investigators "dust" the car for evidence. Check out the seat covers...

    Got sucked into the you tube wormhole tonight. Matt Farrah bought a 328 and he is having it worked on by Donnie Calloway. Really picked up a lot of useful information Donny explains everything very clearly.

    Not really a movie, but when Steve Miller was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame they showed a clip of him driving his gt4.

    US spec 3*8 GTB/GTS door mirrors may do a better job than Euro/rest of the World spec mirrors, but damn! - They sure are ugly! :(

    Decades channel is running a Hardcastle and McCormick marathon this weekend and I've caught a few episodes, very nostalgic! Whenever they have an interior shot of someone shifting they use a shot of a 308 gated shifter and at the into they show a 308 tach.

    It is my understanding that the 308 shots and engine sounds were from Donald P Belesario’s personal 308

    Mine was in Perry Mason returns. I saw the documentation when I bought the car. I didn’t really care about it too much and the guy wanted to keep it. Joe

    I used to own the '81 GTSi from the movie "National Lampoon's Vacation" back in the early 90's. It was an unbelievably pristine car back then, way to nice to enjoy by driving. After owning it about a year, I sold it to dealer in Detroit. I had documentation from Ferrari that it was the car used in the movie.

    Do you happen to still know the chassis number? Would be good to document that car here.

    They are showing another 80's classic all weekend on Decades called Riptide. They had a gold, maybe oro chiaro, carbed 308 in episode 8 season 1. and season 1 episode 10 they had a red 2 valve car.
