I watched that just before actually. I definately saw a white 1200 coupe' right near the start and possibly a 120Y Roachback whe he is walking with his girl at the start, just before they kiss? It has the right body shape but the rear lights are different, perhaps a US rear?

OK, this is a TV show, but anyway...

There is an episode of Seinfeld where Jerry, George and Elaine go to a party (against their better judgement) in Long Island. George ditches them at the party after picking up a chick. Anyway, as they arrive, there is a shot of the outside of the house, and dead centre in the shot, in the middle of the driveway, is a grey 240z.

Obscure seinfeld reference +++

LOL, a Jacky Chan movie where they ride motorbikes over cars. That narrows it down to, like, 50 movies...

:lol:

On Austar channel showcase there is a show called the No.1 ladies detective agency. One of the main vehicles is a datsun 1200 ute.

Pretty sure I saw a 180B in Stone. They reuse the car a few times in a motorbike race scene.

And it's not a movie, but I saw a Datsun in Sons and Daughters the other morning. Not sure what model though.

I was watching an old OH%S video (yes, video) today, and there was a P-plater driving a series one Bluebird. A couple of other interesting cars too - such as the XF panel van police vehicle that pulled over a drunk driver, who in turned pulled in behind a Mazda RX-4.

Best of all, I remembered enough of what the video said to pass :)
