    I believe Sammy was driving his own Black 512BB in his "I can't drive 55" video. Also,speaking of Ferrari's in Music Video's. In a video for Dokken's ,"The Hunter" song. George Lynch is driving a Red/Tan 308GTSi. Which I believe he also owned. At the time,anyway. And,there was another video from late 70's Metal band...name slips me now,that had a Red 308GT4 in it.

    Somebody mentioned once, that there is a 246 Dino in "Harrow House". I was never able to find a copy of that movie, so I can't tell. Your comment Ken however makes me whonder, whether they weren't confusing the Dino with a Lotus. What do you think?

    Yup, black 246 GTS in Insatiable. Actually a great driving scene. In the old days those films had budgets: A helicopter is following the car and gives a great aerial view. The driving scene lasts several minutes. Just like the scene thereafter...

    It was a 1974 Black Europa Special JPS. They used two as the jump crashed the first one. I have an AVI of that scene somewhere...I'm 100% sure on this (might have been a 73 model...Lotus was twitchy about year/model).

    Lying on the floor next to it, bleeding is more like it.

    Martin is probably the actor with the most Ferraris in his movies. He must really like our cars.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned the original The Fast and The Furious movie with Vin Diesel. There is a scene where they pull up next to some balding 40-something with his 17 year old girlfriend (their stereotype, not mine ;-) and the blonde-haired undercover guy yells out, "How much does something like that go for?" The driver of the Ferrari says something like, "Ferrari man" and revs his engine. I have the DVD and have watched it about 10 times but for the life of me I can't figure out what type of a Ferrari it is...hence the "Rookie" tag under my name ;-)

    Cheers,
    Travis

    The car from Family Man was owned by FNA. My own 355 was used in an episode of VIP. Some guy who was named Spider drove it with Pam in it.:D I didn't clean the passenger seat for a month!!

    Daytona coupe in 'Lady Ice' with Donald Sutherland.

    Daytona Spider in A Star is Born, as well as Gumball Rally (same car, I believe...).

    Glad someone mentioned the wonderful 'A New Leaf' with Walter Matthau. Great running joke throughout the film about his 275 4 cam continually breaking down ('Carbon on the valves'...!)

    Does anyone have a NART spyder..? If so, we can add the original Thomas Crown Affair to the list.

    Finally, after all those listed, a 250 GTO!

    But I'm surprised no one mentioned the 250 GTO Replica used in "DELIRIOUS" with John Candy. Bet you didn't know that one! (He he)

    In the 1968 movie spirits of the dead the car was actually a 12 cylinder Fantuzzi spyder, ther was a write up in a Prancing Horse Issue a couple of years ago. There is also gt4 in HBO's Tal;es from the crypt a story about cojoined twins, it shows them spin out of control and get out of the car arguing, pretty funny. The 1968 movie above has my favorite ferrari scene I think except for the hidden

    http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0063715/

    also Glass House wrecked TR
