  1. 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
  2. Crockett's Testarossa...Black or White?

    So I'm on Season 3's opener "When Irish Eyes Are Crying", and I'm curious what people's opinions are on both colors for the Testarossa. After watching it, I think that it actually wouldn't look too bad in Black but it just looks kinda odd having a tan interior with a hardtop to me. Them going to a white color is better looking with the interior being tan but it looks better (convertible) on the Daytona rather than the Testarossa in my opinion. What're y'all's thoughts?
  3. I finally finished improving my 1/18 Kyosho Testarossa. I was waiting many years for the best model in 1/18. The best in my opinion is from Kyosho. Unfortunately, it is not perfect and had to do some serious customization to the model in order to look as close as the real car. Changing Euro to US spec was easy, the front lower lights was quite a challange. Adding the corner windows on the doors was also daring. The flying mirrow needed to be repositioned, Kyosho put it too high. The original rims look awful, while trying fixing, I ended up ruined them. After a couple of years I finally got a cheap Hot Wheels elite Testarossa and replaced the rims. The ones from HW look much more defined and detailed. With careful sanding and cutting, I could put the Kyosho tires on the HW rims and now the car looks nice as I always wanted.

  5. WOW Look at this:
  6. Which Cars ... / Welche Autos ...

    During Season 1 and 2 Sonny Crockett drives a Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Replica (called Daytona because of Ferrari's triple triumph in Daytona in 1967). The Replica was made by McBurnie Coachcraft using a Corvette chassis and original Ferrari body parts. Sonny Crockett fährt in der ersten und zweiten Staffel das Replica eines Ferrari 365 GTS/4 (auch genannt: Daytona zum Gedenken an den Ferrari Dreifachsieg 1967 beim amerikanischen Klassiker). Der Nachbau wurde von McBurnie Coachcraft aus einem Corvette-Chassis und original Ferrari Karrosserieteilen aufgebaut. From Season 3 the black Daytona - which was blown up by an arms dealer in When Irish eyes are crying - is substituted by a white Ferrari Testarossa Model 1984. Though Crockett gets his new car in a later episode (Stone's War) the car can already be seen in When Irish eyes are crying. In this episode it's a mobster's black (!) car which will be confiscated by the Vice Departement later and placed at Crockett's disposal for undercover work. Ferrari provided the show with two (!) Testarossas which weren't of course used in dangerous stunts. For this purpose the Carl Roberts Motor Group build a stunt car using a 1972 DeTomaso Pantera chassis and Original Testarossa body parts. In the shots the stunt car can be regognized by its full drop center rims. The originally black Testarossa was revarnished white allegedly - to be better seen in night shots. Ab der dritten Staffel wird der schwarze Daytona, der in der Folge Liebe und Tod von einem Waffenhändler in die Luft gesprengt wurde, durch einen weißen Ferrari Testarossa von 1984 ersetzt. Obwohl Crockett seinen neuen Wagen erst in der Folge Stones Krieg erhält, ist der Testarossa bereits in der Folge Liebe und Tod zu sehen – in schwarz, als Wagen eines Gangsters, der später vom Vice Departement konfisziert und dann Crockett als "Dienstwagen" für seine Undercoverarbeit zur Verfügung gestellt wird. Für Stuntszenen wurden die beiden von Ferrari zur Verfügung gestellten Wagen gegen ein Stuntcar ausgetauscht, welches von der Carl Roberts Motor Group aus dem Chassis eines 1972er DeTomaso Pantera und originalen Testarossa Karrosserieteilen zusammengebaut wurde. In Filmaufnahmen ist das Stuntcar an den Felgen mit sehr geringer Einpresstiefe ("Tiefbettfelgen") zu erkennen. Der ursprünglich schwarze Testarossa wurde angeblich wegen der besseren Optik bei Nachtaufnahmen umlackiert. When Rico Tubbs is on the road in his own car, he uses a '63 Cadillac Coupe DeVille Convertible. Rico Tubbs fährt, wenn er mit einem eigenen Wagen unterwegs ist, in der Regel einen 63er Cadillac Coupe DeVille Cabrio. Two epsiodes flashback to 1980: Deliver us from Evil, Forgive us our Depts. Then Crockett used a black Porsche 911 Targa Convertible. In zwei Folgen, die in das Jahr 1980 zurückblenden (Und vergib uns unsere Schuld, Der Mann aus der Todeszelle), benutzt Crockett einen schwarzen Porsche 911 Targa Cabrio. For surveillance purposes Switek and Zito are out in a Dodge van, which camouflaged them. It looks like the utility vehicle of an exterminator (Bug Van), but inside it's equipped with the most recent (80ies) observation technology. Das Duo Switek/Zito ist zu Überwachungen mit dem BugVan unterwegs, einem Dodge, der zwar von aussen als Lieferwagen eines Kammerjägers (Bug Van) getarnt ist, innen aber mit der (damals) neusten Abhörtechnik ausgestattet ist. Lieutenant Martin Castillo drives several four-door limousines during all five seasons. At the end of Freefall for example he gets out of a grey-green four-door Chrysler limousine. Lieutenant Martin Castillo fährt verschiedene viertürige Limousinen. Am Ende von Letzter Auftrag steigt er zum Beispiel aus einem viertürigen, graugrünen Chrysler. Stan Switek can hardly be seen in a car. In Down for the Count part 2 he drives a turquoise '63 Ford Thunderbird for example. Stan Switek ist in der Serie nur wenige Male mit einen eigenen (privaten) Wagen zu sehen. In der Folge Am Boden Teil 2 fährt er zum Beispiel einen türkisen 63er Ford Thunderbird. Also Gina Calabrese is provided with a car in Down for the Count part 2. She drives an early 1970 Mercury Cougar XR-7 convertible. Auch Gina Calabrese fährt einen eigenen Wagen in Am Boden Teil 2. Es ist ein silberfarbenes 1970er Mercury Cougar XR-7 Cabrio. ****************************************************************** A detailed register of all cars used in the show can be found at the International Movie Car Database. Very recommendable! Eine ausführliches Verzeichnis aller in der Serie benutzen Fahrzeuge ist in der International Movie Car Database zu finden. Sehr empfehlenswert!
