    Here are a few shots (first 3) of my car that I think I had posted in here in the Ferrari thread, while the last small shot is the Camera Car as seen in recent years The first shot makes the grill look almost gray due to shading.

    I have studied Aristotle, Socrates, William Friedrich Hegel, Bertrand Russell. I have toured college campuses debating the virtues of dialectic versus symbolic syllogism. I have written scholarly articles on the need for a new, more dynamic logic. But nothing in my life has prepared me for the workings of the Thomas Magnum mind. Higgins aka John Hillerman will be missed

    "Fifteen years. Seems like only yesterday." Updating the thread today to note the game's Fifteenth Anniversary today. Not a lot of buzz about the anniversary on the internet except for the GTA subreddit and Welcome to the '80's video posted by James above. For a different type of tribute here's videogamedunkeys very funny Vice City video from a couple years ago. Happy 15th Anniversary, Vice City!

    And she’s off. Thinking of setting up a webpage that timelines the milestones in the cars life from being the 1st Daytona built to being lost in the desert. All the mishaps, from the donor car being a wrecked car to being lost because of a VIN swap as well as photos and updates of the cars transformation back to its screen used look. 5BDC5A27-9076-4D0E-8386-6536224BE451.MOV

    Did the Enerald Coast Car Show this weekend. The car stood its own very well. I was parked in the car carol with 3000 other cars, the first day when a event staff came and asked me & 4 other cars to move to the stage area. Come to find out, the 5 of us won people choice awards. Much better location I got a lot of comments on the underhood mirror paint job. Ppl loved the look everyon loved the stance. I think I’m as close as I’ve seen to the car on Miami Vice

    With Zeus and Apollo, the trusted "lads". A great show made even greater by a Texan playing a Brit, and was so convincing he received fan mail from the UK asking from where he hailed.

    I dare you to name more than a handful of other songs that are as quintessentially "mid-80s" as this To me, it has one of the finest synth hooks of that era...

    32 years ago today, on November 2, 1985 "Music from the Television Series Miami Vice" soundtrack album hit the number 1 spot of the Billboard top 200 and held the top album position for a stunning 11 weeks! Any great memories of this record? I had the cassette back then and wore it out, but obtained the CD and vinyl a few years ago and listening tonight.

    As Don Johnson said......I don't know what movie they made but it's not Miami Vice! If you are curious and want to give your opinion.........rent it & watch it.

    Check out this YouTube video: I was reading my email this morning and had an email from AutoWeek Magazine. These emails generally include a number of topics from their recent issue. One of the items that caught my eye was "This General Lee Dodge Charger Stunt Car is secretly a Crown Vic Police Interceptor". In reading the article, the above YouTube video was included. Don't let the General Lee stuff confuse you. If you watch the entire video, the 5 most iconic TV cars are shown and discussed. And, guess what is number 1 - Yup, the Miami Vice Ferraris. I have to agree with their choices!!! MV most iconic car.docx

    Yeah, i was just playing GTA 3 yesterday also. But my original PS2 version, not PS4. The III era games are absolute classics, the graphics are some of the best of that era, even GTA 3 which was released in 2001, it's better than some games from 2005. And the controls are smooth/fluid also, compared to other PS2-era games which felt stiff.

    Hello, it looks like we haven't had this thread as such... if we did, apologies... But can you name your all-time top five scenes from the series? Here are mine (it was actually much harder than I thought to single out my top five favorite scenes out of all those countless great moments ): Number 5: The ending of Out Where The Buses Don't Run. Great conclusion to a spooky episode, and what's not to love about "Brothers In Arms"... Number 4: The Home Invaders, where they are poring over the case files late at night at the office. Absolutely genius and one of the best uses ever of Jan Hammer's music. Number 3: Bushido, where Castillo recognizes Jack Gretsky on the surveillance tape. Miami Noir at its finest. Number 2: Golden Triangle Pt II, Castillo and Lao Li together in the limousine. Even finer example of Miami Noir. And I love the vintage Mercedes 600 Number 1: Lombard, the scene between Lombard and Crockett on the boat. My all-time favorite episode to begin with, but this scene captures its essence. Honorable mention: Down for the Count Pt I, Switek finding Zito in the locker room. Intense scene, and as such, a worthy farewell to Larry.

    Not sure if this is my all-time top 5, just what I could come up with off the top of my head. I'm currently in my Vice off-season, starting again on the 1st of December, the first day of summer. 5. Out Where the Buses Don't Run - Brother in Arms Scene 4. Crockett convinces Robbie to do the right ring 3. Crockett and cousin Jack in the alley 2. In The Air Tonight 1. Evan - The powerful scene at night at the gas station with Tubbs. Eh I don't know. Honourable mentions - Two scenes in Bought and Paid For, the car chase at the beginning, and the nightclub scene including when Odette's mother arrives at the airport. I love those, and that episode.

    Here is a page I started, just a start with 'my story', how we came about the car and the path that lead to its full unraveling. I hope to update this and have a full life cycle of the cars history laid out from when it was first being built to the future when its back to "TV condition". If anybody spots wrong historic info when I tried to put together "the history" please let me know. I want to try and make it as accurate as possible. https://www.volocars.com/the-attraction/miami-vice-daytona

    I know the Miami miscellaneous locations thread disappeared - but thought would post here. A friend of mine on Facebook posted this picture of Bayfront Park , the bandstand and library from 1966. This is where the Intercontinental and Citibank featured in many episodes would be built

    New update on my covers. Check it out! Copied/pasted from the YouTube video description: iPhone video alert! Here’s a glimpse of my new setup. This is basically all I need to pick up where I left off. All you’re hearing is the DX7 guitar patch thru the flanger (in “DOUBLER” mode here) with some plate emulation reverb, and the pad track I recorded years ago with my now gone Roland Juno 106. The Rockman X100 (in the ROCKMOUNT) and the JP-08 are only shown (not heard) here. I now have a JU-06 to go forward for the Memorymoog pads (not shown or heard here). NOT HQ AUDIO!

    UPDATE: So, I’ve mentioned a needed item that’s holding me up from being back in business with the covers/YouTube channel. I just won an auction for it on eBay today! As Izzy said: “Something I been looking to take down for a long tine”. It’s literally the last piece of my puzzle to reverse engineer nearly any cue from the first 2 seasons. As soon as it arrives, it’s totally GAME-ON with the covers! (for musicians interested, the missing piece was the very rare blue face MXR M126 rack flanger/doubler he famously used on virtually all of his lead guitar sounds—clean or overdriven. Jan once told me he has 5 of them!)

    Didn't see this comment before. Happy 15th Anniversary to the best game ever made. "You took 15 years from me, Sonny. Now I'm gonna make you pay!" "You still don't get it, do you... I OWN you, Tommy. Those 15 years were mine to spend." 15 years has flown by. Next year is actually the big anniversary. When Vice City came out, it was based 16 years in the past. And next year will mark 16 years since it's release. So, if 2002 was 1986, then 2018 will be 2002. Just makes you think that when the came came out, the 80s was not that long ago at all.

    Me too, Vicefan7777! The original is my favorite scary movie...for many reasons, but mostly because of what happened to me during the first time I ever saw the film. Rented a VHS of it back in high school when home alone over night. To make a long story shorter, we lived in the country, and at about 10:30 that night and around the time Laurie (Jamie Lee) was running back across the street to the Doyle house, with Michael in-toe, I heard a noise downstairs. I got part way down the stairs and looked to the front door. I then had the “upmost joy” of seeing someone ripping the screen of the screen door (as it was summer and the actual door was open to let air come in thru the screen door), and trying to break in. Never before nor since have I felt that kind of fear...nor do I want to. However, the psycho intruder turned out to be...my outside dog! He was scared of lightning (which it was doing that night) and was trying to get in the house with me. I could have shot him!! I was so mad I chained him to the garage, smoked a few cigarettes (as back then I was young and stupid...quit years ago), and—forced myself to finish the movie, lol! I’m really looking forward to the new 40th anniversary movie with Jamie Lee next year!! Meanwhile my towns theater is showing the original next week on Halloween...I’ve already got my tickets! It’ll be awesome to se it on the big screen! Im not sure, but this could be the 1st time the films been on the big screen since ‘78 when it was released!

    My towns theater has been having a retro movie night on some Tuesdays this month. Last night I got to see the psychologically shocking Silence of the Lambs on the big screen for the first time since it was released back in ‘91! It was still just as amazing and captivating 26 years later! Next week is the ultimate...for me that is. For the first time in decades, and digitally remastered, the original 1978 Halloween is being shown—on Halloween!! I think this is to help promote the new 40th anniversary Halloween film planned for next year...with Jamie Lee returning to her role as Laurie Strode! I think all the sequels after part 2, as well as Zombies horrible remakes—thank goodness, will be ignored. We’ll see!

    1. The final scene of Out Where the Buses Don't Run 2. Stan shooting the tv in Phil the Shill 3. Castillo's introduction to the Vice team in One Eyed Jack 4. The opening scene of Yankee Dollar 5. The final scene of No Exit.

    Those are all awesome choices man. It's hard to think of the all time 5 so I'll put scenes that are memorable. 5. The end of "Milk Run" when one of the kids gets shot down at the airport in slow-mo. That end shot of Crockett sitting on the floor covered in blood with the slow version of Jan Hammer's "Rain" playing. Those feels man. 4. The end of No Exit with Phil Collins "I don't care anymore", reminded me of the ship yard shoot out at the end of 2006 movie (but in a good way) 3. The end of "Bought and Paid for" when Gina finds out about Odette's suicide. 2. Castillo beating the Thai Assassin in a back alley fist fight in Golden Triangle. My favourite Castillo moment 1. The opening of Yankee Dollar with Par Avion playing. That's one of the best uses of licensed music imo. Amazing. I LOVE that scene. Lao Li and Menton are just smug little a-holes all throughout that ep, made Castillo taking them down that more satisfying.
