    I know about this one but was never able to find a copy of it. Must have been a real box office hit...nott.

    Actually, I have a copy (VHS). Not sure if I should be ashamed of that or not. LOL.

    Incidentally, I thought of another one:

    Caddy Shack 2. There is a scene where a blonde goes to meet Jackie Mason, I think. Anyway, outside of his door is what looks to be a yellow 275 GTS. Can anyone confirm the model?

    I know this thread is about movies, but I couln't resist posting this:

    There is an episode of Knight Rider, 3rd or 4th season, in which Michael and KITT must stop a group of rich guys who street race exotic cars. There was a Lotus Esprit Turbo, and a Porsche but the ring-leader drove a gold Ferrari 308GTS. Apparently NBC could not use the name Ferrari, so they called the car "The Dagger DX" There are some cool chase scenes, lots of interior and exterior shots of the Ferrari. At the end the 308 is being chased by KITT, and a light on it's dashboard comes on that reads "Brake Failure". The 308 skids to a stop at the edge of a cliff, just in time for Michael Knight to save the day. So very Hollywood.....

    I would love to see this episode again, if only for a good laugh.....

    There was also an episode of Hunter from the late 80's in which a blonde drives a red/tan 328 GTS throughout. There were quite a few driving scenes in the episode. It was nice.

    I did not see it listed but "The Glass House" (2001) has a testarossa that gets smashed by a semi in a car chase.

  13. In the movie "Swordfish" the main character stands infront of a silver 360 Spider for about 5 minutes.

    In "Juwanna Man" the main character has a red F355 Spider in his driveway.

    Um, i meant to say a 355 Spider, not a 360 Spider, and the name of the movie, which i finally got last night, is Tunnel Vision...

    Also, saw some b-rate movie last night with Dolph Lungren as a prison escapee of some sort... There were what appeared to be 3 Countaches and 3 F40s in the movie; one of which - if there was more than one - was definitely a replica - the other two probably were, as well...

    The subtle irony of the movie, though, was the evil cop in the Countach, chasing the innocent "villain" - Dolph Lungren - who was in the F40... Some of the exhaust notes and engine sounds sounded real... Anyone have any input on this flick - unfortunately, i didn't catch the name of it...

    Something doesn't compute NNO: Tunnel Vision is from 1976, no 355 Spiders at that time. Unless this B flick stole the title.

    On the Lundgren topic, here a list of his movies, maybe you remember the title?

    Agend Red
    Army of One
    Blackjack
    Bridge of Dragons
    Cover up
    Detention
    Hidden agenda
    Hidden assassin
    Jill the ripper
    Johnny Mnemonic
    The last warrior
    Masters of the universe
    Men of war
    The Minion
    The Peacekeeper
    The Punisher
    Showdown in Little Tokyo
    Storm catcher
    Sweepers
    Universal soldier

    Sheesh I rarely recognize any of these. Must have gotten straight to video tapes. Yikes.

    I know that I have mentioned this movie before, but still a great movie with a Ferrari.

    "In Your Wildest Dreams"


    A 308 has a great deal of screen time.

    There is a scene that takes place in a dealership. I have been told that it is either MAG or Steve Harris. Anyone know?

    Mostly the red 308. But there is a shot or two of a TR in the dealership. A few Alfas in the same scene.

    Ok, i spotted a yellow F512M Convertible - yes, Convertible - in some b-rate movie last night, with one of the Baldwin brothers driving... Not sure which Baldwin it was, but i've seen him in a lot of b movies... Anyone have any idea...?

    In this movie - which i didn't see much of - he was very wealthy (hence the yellow F512M rag top) and turned out to be a villain...

    The Peterson Auto Museum in L.A. has a Black F512M Convert. The car has an Ostrich interior and aftermarket wheels. It was on a VHS tape titled "The Ferrari Experience"

    I wonder how many of these have been made. It must be far fewer than the TR converts made in the 80s.....
