    In the Warriors I believe swan is leaning against an opel gt with the paint stripped, all you see really is a little bit of the roof, fender, quarter window, and c pillar. This is right before the baseball furries.

    GT's on TV

    You will see a GT on the Rockford Files; as Garner is walking out of a store, a GT is parked in full view in front. Also; as I was channel surfing one night, I came across a chase scene involving a little red Speedster and the Viper on the VIP show.
    Speaking of the Speedster, the 2007 GT is based on the design of the Speedster if a photo from the Windsor Star on Feb. 2 is correct.

    My Classic Car this morning on (Speed tv) the Rte 66 episode shows a nice red Kadette.....I kept looking for a GT but either missed it or they didn't show it.

    I was watching "Moving Violation" the other night. One of the old 70's car pseudo car chase movies. Anyway, there is a blue GT in the background at a marina.

    In season one of the 1977's TV sit-com "Soap", during the opening sequence there is an "antique bronze" Manta parked in front of the non-wealthy sister's house.

    Advertising Rules! should be required viewing for any Opel fan. I just saw it the other day and it's a very entertaining film, besides having the Opel connection. You would find it in the foreign film section. A good trick to play on your significant other who's sick of hearing about Opels: On movie night, rent this and just say it is a foreign film that someone recommended. Then act surprised when you find out the movie's plot is centered around Opel. Be prepared to do the dishes.

    I have been watching that series as I missed it because of military commitments out of country. Checked the Manta out and it is a burgundy one with a matching landau top.

    New Wendy's commercial. Chicken driving in a high speed chase. Thought I saw a red GT for a second. Look for it.

    To be correct the GT was the last car he drove and those last episodes are harder to find due to some contract problems with the show ( I think it jumped from one network to another.. )

    Link to a couple of old clips..

    If only I had a better comptuer and broadband at the time I did these clips I would have made them look a lot better.

    There's also an Ascona in the background when they arrive in Colorado in this movie...just a bit before the garbage truck vs. motorcycle scene.

    I have to add a couple here. Chuck Norris' first movie, was a bit part and he played a bad guy "Slaughter in San Francisco" which I think has been renamed, but, the good guy in it drives a Kadett Wagon.

    I the first Beverly Hills Cop movie, when they open the back of the semi of cigarettes, there's a Kadett Wagon parked on the side of the street


    Also did anyone catch the GT in the Christmas movie "The Gathering"
    "Yes, I do have a rifle rack in my Sportwagon"
