    YES! I saw it tonight. Go to the movie "The Animal". There is an outdoor chase, and the police are driving a 73-75 Red K5 with the top off. Unfortunatly it dosen't survive the chase, but it's really good looking and in great shape until the chase is over =)

    Pretty cool, just had to let ya know!

    I saw the K5 in a preview. Been itching to find out if it was a K5 or a Kseries truck. Glad to hear its a K5 :)

    Yeah the best cars always get wrecked. like in gone in 60 seconds. And that sweet car in that stupid ricer movie that is coming out, you know the one, it does a wheel stand so you know its a rear wheel drive v8, no pansy 4cylinder front wheel on that beast [​IMG]

    They had a 73-75 in Last Action Hero. Arnold ran it through a wall and jumped it. Most people didn't catch it was a K5 because it had a Truck Chrome hoop in it.

    I saw a preview to that rice boy movie and it have a 'Cuda doing a burnout and a wheelstand at the same time. Hmm....where's the laws of physics when you need 'em [​IMG]

    maybe they always wreck the good stuff because they are so rare ,and it makes us car guys hate them...but if they wreck a rice burner, no one would really care. I'm sure people cried when that GT-500 got wrecked in Gone in 60 Seconds...but I doubt anyone would if it happened to a Honda. They want it emotional[​IMG]

    There was one in Enemy of the State. It only had a small part(and the top was on). The conservationist who shot the video was driving it. My date was giving me a hard time about my truck on the ride to the theater. After I saw the K5, I told her to let me know if her little RAV4 was in any movies when it was 25 years old. (I doubt it’ll even be running by then.)

    Everyone in the theatre laughed when the Blazer in the animal crashed but it was the only part of the movie where I cried.

    Ya there it a really sweet K5 in the movie Earthquake (1974) it is in a lot of parts and very cool. and even more cool is that is is driven by Charlton Heston. it is funny because he says it had 7 forward and 3 reverse gears.

    There is a commercial for genital herpes where the lady and her boyfriend are driving a K5 (seen it on MTV). Nice coverage for us K5ers!!

    In "Storm of the Century" there's a full convertible K5 that actually doesn't get wrecked[​IMG]

    I'm so poor I can't even pay attention [​IMG]
