TV's Shows & Movies that have 3rd Gen Camaro or Firebird

Thought it would be cool to have a list of mainstream media TV shows and movies that feature 3rd Gen's.

I noticed the Americans a spy thriller about sleeper KGB agents that ran for six years had a sweet 3rd Gen Z28 that was show for several seasons.

Anyone know details about the car?

There was a show on tv in the 80s called Knight Rider. It featured a Black Trans Am. Damn thing could talk, plus drive by itself. Neat.

I upset a few people in the theatre with my mini freak out when I spotted that car haha. There's a part where there's a killer 2nd gen too. Best parts of the movie for sure

Re: TV's Shows & Movies that have 3rd Gen Camaro or Firebird

There should be a sticky thread on this topic... One of the rare cases a thread should be bumped to add to the list.

IMCDB.org does a fair job of documenting movie cars. They don't know a 70 from a 95, but they try. Between Camaros and Firebirds/Trans Ams, they have about 5,000 entries, but they aren't broken down by year, and the year is usually incorrect anyway.

There are a few scattered in the traffic here -

Re: TV's Shows & Movies that have 3rd Gen Camaro or Firebird

In a number of street scenes in various Seinfeld episodes, you'll see the same cars drive by or parked. They must have been cars owned by the crew. One of those is an Z-28. Another is a Mitsubishi Starion.

It might have just been because the Mitsu was broken down. In the last 25 years I've seen many multitudes more of StarQuests sinking into muddy driveways and fields than ever driving on the roads. Seems to be their natural state.

My roommate back in 1989-90 drove a Starion. Silver just like this one. Fun car to drive, though overweight. I don't think he had any issues with it other than the sunroof leaking badly.

Looks like a cool show if you are a child of the 80's like many of us are.

Re: TV's Shows & Movies that have 3rd Gen Camaro or Firebird

This was mentioned in the old thread, but here it is again since this thread is popular:
In the Showtime series "Dexter" (one of my all time favorites) there is a dark green (possibly black?) GTA that shows up randomly throughout all 8 seasons. A couple of times we see it driving, but most of the time it's just parked somewhere. What's most interesting to me is that in some shots the headlights are up (as if the motors don't work) and in some shots they are down. Peculiar!


When the series ended, a ton of stuff was auctioned off including Dexter's boat, but I never the saw the GTA auctioned and haven't seen it since.

Doesn't it kind of creep you out when someone tells you they don't like these cars? I understand not buying one; they don't suit everyone's lifestyle. But how can someone not like this car? I have friends that just don't get it. That think I have terrible taste in cars and couldn't believe when I once again bought a 3rd gen this year. Almost makes you rethink the whole relationship.

Luckily nobody close to me dislikes my car except of course my mom.. but I do find it pretty crazy when I'm driving my car and barely any people even glance at it. On the rare occasion that I spot another third gen on the road I go nuts, nevermind another GTA. Third gens are just so damn cool looking

Actually, when I take my car out now, I get a lot of admiring looks, some questions, and even the occasional "Is it for sale?" When your car is thirty years old and in great shape, it stands out from the crowd since it's pretty rare.

Kids love these cars.. I find it’s a tougher sell on the adults who resist the good looks of the car because of the stigma and reputation they once had..

There was once a kid who’s dad was trying to get him excited about an Triumph parked next to me but the kid was obsessed with my IROC.. the dad was like, “That’s just an old Camaro..but look how cool this Triumph is!”

The kid and myself could care less about little old British convertibles with little round headlights.. I found it amusing..

Remember the time Hannibal and Face stole a Recaro Trans Am?





Complete with a scene unlike any other where they evaded the MP's by driving up the back of a car carrier. Kinda seems like a rip off of that talking black Firebird show.

Re: TV's Shows & Movies that have 3rd Gen Camaro or Firebird

Or how about the time that Macgyver traded his race car driving skills for sexual favors and 1LE calipers?



"If you drive my car, you get these dual piston calipers. If you win the race, you can PIITB" (paraphrased).



"1LE! Shhh... She legend! Baby you had me at 'dual pistons'!"











Fun Fact #182 - Micky G actually drove in the race series.

Captain Marvel, when Carol Danvers pulls up to Pancho's Bar there is a 1992 Purple Haze Trans Am parked out front. I poked my girlfriend in the ribs with a big grin on my face in the theater and she whispered back "yes, yes, I see the third gen..."

Yep, I noticed that too. Was hoping for more third gen action but at least we were represented to some degree.

I liked the Impala SS that Fury drove. My BIL just sold a 96 that looked a lot like it.

Yep, I noticed that too. Was hoping for more third gen action but at least we were represented to some degree.

I liked the Impala SS that Fury drove. My BIL just sold a 96 that looked a lot like it.
Me Three! I was with my son and that grin came out! It looked like the whole movie was 90's based.

The airport abduction scene in Big Trouble in Little China had that red Trans AM roaring through the parking garage. Always thought that very brief scene was cool.

No one has mentioned Gone in 60 Seconds yet? Where Giovanni Ribisi character has to get his "tool" to go steal that Porsche? And then they crush the Firebird later?

Has anyone seen this new WalMart commercial promoting internet shopping? As the Delorean flys away, Knight Rider's KITT (1983 T/A?) is front and center. 35 years old, but still in the future!

If you don't know what show this is from, you are not fit to own a Third Gen.

Coming to America

The Office


Miami Vice. You don't see much of it, but I had to screen shot it just for the haircut.

I actually saw a Mitsubishi Starion broke down on the side of the road a couple weeks ago. I haven't seen one of those in a long time, and I still thought it was pretty cool
