1st gen turbos in movies/shows

Post by mike-tracy » Thu Jan 20, 2011 6:07 am

I was bored, browsing the internet movie car database and found a couple of turbo 1st gens:

Seinfeld:

Las Vegas (TV Series):

And a cool TW in Avalon:

Other than Seinfeld (which also features an SVX), I haven't actually seen any other shows or movies with SS's or TW's in it, have you? Here's a link to the site:

There's a modified wagon throughout a book.

Midnight in a Perfect World on Amazon or order anywhere. The first book in a quartet chronicling the rise of a man from angry criminal to philanthropist. Midnight... is a distopic noirish novel featuring 'Duchess', a modified 1990 Subaru Legacy wagon.

That's pretty cool Mike. There was a white 92 ss at my hotel in Oahu. It was cool to see one there. Forgot to get a picture of it.

I've never seen an SS or TW in anything but Seinfeld. However, it is nice to see some Legacys in a few well known films/shows.

Legacys in the media

Post by Redlined » Fri Aug 12, 2011 12:57 am

Thought id try a thread and see if it stuck, with literally millions of Legacys on the streets they tend to sneak into commercials, movies, music videos even TV.

Today I noticed a 90-91 legacy L in Absolute Power about 1:39:30 parked on the side of the road. Clint Eastwood almost runs over the driver as he rushes to save the leading lady.

A while back I noticed this one in an allstate add.



So post em up! What do you got? Where else have our beloved Legacys shown in the spotlight?

I've noticed a few 1st gens on tv not long ago. I saw the back of a pre facelift sedan on a cell phone ad last year. During the first season of American Pickers, there was a nice blue first gen wagon sitting in the background. Once there was a white sedan parked out front in an episode of American Choppers too..

Just a few I have noticed...

I've heard Jeremy Clarkson mention the Subaru Legacy on Top Gear, referring to a list of cars they agree that they like...

What model do they test? They don't get one of those "used car" challenges and end up with one of our 1st gens, do they? If so I gotta find that episode! :shock:


Edit: Found an episode from 1998 where the Legacy is reviewed. Here's YouTube:

Old Saloons 1/2: (mainly a review of a BMW)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6q2htEzjx8E

Old Saloons 2/2: (all the BMW rivals, incl Legacy):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=TP7Hw9oTNso


Edit 2: What rubbish... the Legacy was discussed for all of 5 seconds and his comments were not kind. Must be another episode where they find a Legacy they all "like".

I really would like to see how one of our 1st gen SS models would hold up to some of their used car challenges... anyone know if they ever did that with a Legacy?

Depeche Mode's music video for their song "Wrong" has a first gen Legacy Wagon (1992-1994 styling) that appears a few times.

1:51-1:55 stops to help person
2:22 enters from the left scenes through to 2:36

Video is here

Enjoy :)

Also sad R.I.P. P-71 crown vic and F350 quad cab in the video, but cool that there's a first gen Lego in there.
