Films with Corvettes in?


Anyone got a favourite film with a Corvette in?

I was listening to some music that reminded me of Michael Mann's 1995 film, Heat.

A C4 only features for a few seconds, but I remember it looking awesome.

Probably more for the Camaro enthusiast in this film!

"White Sands" with Willem Dafoe is a good film and rather underrated. He drives what looks like '66 Big Block convertible which has a reasonable amount of screen time. That has got to be a good thing! Very Happy Clap

Bit of "Chic Flic", but enough to make any C3 owner cry, watch Terms of Endearment, with Shirley MacLaine and Jack Nicholson. Jack's character drives a '78 into the sea...!! Surprised

Good film though Smile

And of course Apollo 13 which has several C3s and a very nice Shelby 350. Yup White Sands hugely underrated.

Not a favourite but:

The actor in the Porsche also drove a C2 as a daily driver in a TV serial where he played Kuzzack the part of a US Lawyer

The film may already have been mentioned earlier in the thread but Dirty Dancing makes a brief show of a parked C1.

My partner and I stayed at Mountain Lake Lodge last year aka Kellermans........the level of water in the lake was well down but the location / scenery is stunning.....

And don't forget Steve McQueens classic film LeMans which features a big block C3....☺

Thanks all.

Enjoyed the clip Barry.

Le Mans is a Classic. Not watched in many years.
