While doing a search for photos I stumbled across many older pictures of screen shots from tv shows and/or movies with are beloved 1st gens in them.  So I thought I would post some of those pics and see if anyone here could guess the show or movie from which it was from..   Tongue
If you have one dont hesitate to post it up.  I love seeing vintage photos or clips of these cars.

And no cheating!!   Grin

BEWITCHED, HOW GREEN WAS MY GRASS

The Camaro leaves at around the 3 minute mark and comes back at around the 4:30 minute mark. (And yes, the tail pan is semi gloss black.)

Is that a big block car or small block? Sounded awfully quiet when it drove off.

It appears that Daren and Sam had lots of Camaros.


The Camaro in the photo above is obviously a big block with blue interior, and blue top cover.

Another 1967 without the blacked out tailpan, added bumper guards and now white interior and top cover.

Darren and Sam's neighbor across the street has a nice red 67 Camaro convertible.

In fact, all of the housewives in Bewitched drive classic Chevy muscle (Camaros, Corvettes, Chevelles, all convertibles of course)

And don't get me started on other Camaros in show business...


In the movie Transformers, I heard they were supposed to use a 69 Camaro as pre-Bumblebee, but they could not find the required number of 69 Camaros that were junked out and inexpensive, so they went with the oh so popular 75-76 POS Camaro.
Don't forget Danny's 69 Camaro convertible on the TV show Las Vegas
Drew Barrymores 69 pace car on the movie Charlie's Angels (that I got outbid on when it was on ebay, and now sits in a Gatlinburg TN car museum, with a VIN less than 50 away from my current pace car.
John Cusack's 68 Camaro in Better Off Dead
Tomboy...68 Camaro
Christine...67 Camaro
Burt Reyonlds 68 Camaro in Cop and a half - I last seen this at the Orlando Universal Studios sitting in their bone yard.  
Tuff Turf - 68 Camaro
Fast and Furious - 69 Camaro Yenko

And for a complete list....I just found this....

That movie (At Close Range) had some great cars. That was one of the things I liked best about the movie.
Imagine...trading a car because you don't like the radio??

It was pretty cool to watch these shows then and even better now that we know what we like. Here is another pic I circulated this past summer. Love the color combo on it.

 And their hair always managed to stay perfect and hats stayed on while driving  Smiley

I'm not sure about this but I think the show was filmed in California, but the setting was New York. Anybody know for sure?

Adam 12 has many California Camaros, muscle cars, and cars of the times in early 70's   Can even get the sound and some in racing situations.
