Magnum Force, a Clint Eastwood/Dirty Harry episode, shows a nice EM parked on the streets of San Francisco in a chase scene.

In Coal Miner's Daughter, a white EM makes several cameos, including up on a lift at the garage where Tommy Lee Jones worked.

In the opening scenes of Godzilla Matthew Broderick drives a Greenbrier.

I saw a two-tone 1960 in a scene from a Hawaii Five-O episode that guest starred Susan Dey.

In "Animal House" I think I saw the tail of a white or light blue EM parked in front of the Delta House briefly in one scene halfway into the movie.

I could be wrong 'cause there's been no other mention of it on any list, but the lights look distinctive...

Billy Dean's Billy The Kid music video from the early 90's. They rented YS-074 from me and you see it in the background the last 20 seconds or so.

There are two Greenbriers in Apollo 13. The scene is the night before the launch, the rocket is in the background, and the families come out to speak to the astronauts before the ill fated flight. I have watched this several times as my van was used in that scene. I'm still not sure which one is mine.

There was also an episode of Beavis and Butt-head that featured a red EM corvair. I know not a movie but still worth mentioning tongue sticking out smiley

The EM in Forrest Gump is in the rainy scene when Forrest opens the door to a car (the EM) to drag a guy off "his girl" because he thinks the guy is hurting her.

Decent shot of a LM in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

Corvette Summer with Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) has a riced out LM.

The recent movie Zodiac starts off with the first couple to be killed sitting in a EM

Herbie goes to Monte Carlo, a LM in the racing track scenes

This video by Lone Star has a few good LM shots

D12 f. Eminem "My Band" - Can you spot the Corvair?


Axe Dark "Chocolate Man" Commercial - You've gotta be quick to catch this one


The previously mentioned Spice Girls video has some nice Rampside shots. But there is another video from the same time period with a Rampy in it, but I can't think of the name of the band or the title of the song at the moment, and it's drivin' me nuts...
