65 gto in the movies

the movie is Setup and is a tuff guy shoot em up heist gone wrong double cross revenge flick( thats an Oscar category by the way) with Bruce Willis and Curtis Jackson (50 cent) just released to video and the star is a 65 GTO appearing in a beautiful Fontaine Blue Metallic . Great usage of the car showing how easy it is to transport a kidnapped victim in the ever so spacious trunk. Some discontinuity in the film appears when 50 cent follows someone in the car and is NOT NOTICED!!! also 50 cent gets out of the car with the window 1/2 down in downtown Detroit to get into another car to question them and the car is NOT stolen.

I find myself looking for GTOs and other popular classics in older movies I have seen every Dirty Harry movie a zillion times, I now watch to look at the cars.... I saw the other night.... The Enforcer,,, Harry's buddy Charlie was backing out of a parking spot in a yellow '68 Lemans... sounded really nice too... Funny how in the background of movies like this are cars we yearn for now but back then they were a dime a dozen...

One of my faves was when I was watching a re-run of a 1968 Hawaii Five-O episode, and a police car used in a funeral scene was a Fontaine Blue '66 GTO hardtop with a gumball light and siren on the roof!!! Yeah, gotta love the older shows/movies that show these cars as just...cars.

The movie with Cameren Diaz and Tom Cruise there was a 65/66 GTO in it. Obviously it wasn't original but looked from the outside to be.

If you remember "I dream of Jeannie"? Ol' Larry Hagman (JR Ewing) drove either a 66 or 67 blue convertible GTO. Can't remember which year it's been so long but I remember thinking how cherry it was.

I believe Pontiac was a sponsor- so the car was pure product placement- or maybe he just told jeannie to give him the hottest car out at the time

Judge in the first episode of Walking Dead. 68 Convert in Lost World was like a GS with a Lemans nose. Weird Science wasn't that around a 70 GTO. Chet was great in that movie.

My Science Project had a blown 68. This movie is where I fell in love with the GTO and that body style. It is why I own a 69 now! "Hit the blowah!"

I believe there is a 64 convertible in the opening credits for Restaurant Impossible on the Food Network.

In Forrest Gump....a 66 GTO stops to pick Forrest up. He is hitching a ride in the pouring rain.
