    I'd be interested.

    I made a tape from USA Network when they re-ran the shows.
    Trying to do it with the VCR in real time was quite a mess. Not fast enough to catch all the edit points for each time they showed the 308.

    yeah I'll just do the chase scenes and anything of substance. You know after this many years those shows were still really good to go back and watch, no wonder it was so popular.

    Sounds like a fun project. I "collected" the one scene where the Ferrari is being chased by some big fat US car. Kinda funny. Magnum "escapes" and the US car ends up in the river.

    Anyway, I would like to see a similar effort done for the Miami Vice show. From leaking memory I think they had the even better chase scenes, especially once they got the white TR. I only have a TR scene where they drive up to a house, but no chase scenes.
    :(

    Yes, Paulie_B and others...Magnum PI is a classic in my book.

    I recorded about 90% of the shows during USA Network's (?) first run, and then on the second run I recorded nearly all the episodes that I missed on the first time around. Now I have all but about 3 episodes taped. In fact, they did not air a couple of them at all.

    Now, when I have nothing better to watch, I can just pop in a Magnum episode...life is good!

    I'll get started on it this weekend. I'll proabably charge a few bucks to cover shipping and tapes. I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

    What was really interesting was watching the series in order and watching the car go from a GTS-then a GTSi-to a QV.

    Sounds great. I'll admit that the ole MP3 player in my 308 has been known to spout out the MPI theme music!

    I too would be interested in this video.

    tifosi12- Be careful, that "big fat" US car if leaky memory serves corretly was a 1965 Pontiac GTO sporting a 389cu tri-power V8. If real, this "big fat" US car was good for 360 horsepower. This is a scene I remebered better than others because I remeber Magnum thinking that her could easily evade his persuers only to find out that this "big fat" US car was gaining on him!
