I just got done watching "drive angry" with nicolas cage, they tore up a nice lookin mark, what a shame..........but it did take alot of abuse, well they probably used several in the making.
First time in recent memory i have seen a movie with a mark in a prominent role.

Robocop had one IIRC, and The Last Boyscout did. I've never seen one in a movie that was really nice or grabbed your attention.

Was watching Seinfeld (Jimmy episode) and there was a blue 1986-1987 LSC in there. Also there are two in the movie Swordfish. One when they are driving in the TVR and another next to the victims car in the car bomb scene.

All:

The Lincoln Mark VII Club WEB Site had several dozen listings of movies and TV shows which contained a Mark VII in them. I believe it was lost when the WEB Site went down (crashed) about a year and a haft ago. Remember, even James Bond drove a Mark VII Rent-A-Car in one of his movies.

Even Star Trek has a Mark VII appear in one of its movies. Look for it on Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, in the highway traffic clip right after the scene where Spock knocks out the punk rocker on the bus.

Yea I love the movie JUST to see the Mark VII.
First it appears subtle, in the back ground. Cameo shots, here and there.

Then after that god awful church scene enters the action. No cameos here, its in ACTION; it is APART of the movie 8-)
(SPOILER ALERT) Not only did the silver Mark VII CHASE down the Challenger (star car) repeatedly, it RUNS someone over (messy!) and makes a ***daring leap*** over a wall of fire, gets shot and then explodes.

And this is why you do NOT buy cheap coil spring conversion kits before doing fiery car chases :lol:

Fast Five has one. The movie takes place in Rio, but I suspect most of the scenes were shot in California. Anyway, just before the feds are ambushed (this after the Vin Diesel / Rock fight) they pass by a light blue VII parked on the street. It actually didn't look trashed at all. As the ambush scene began I thought for sure the VII was going to get blown up or otherwise smashed up (like that poor, POOR classic Charger!!!). Nope, nothing ever happened to it, in fact a few other cars got blown up in that sequence but we didn't see the VII again. 8-)

Btw, a great movie, easily the best of the bunch, loved it. Needless to say the two 2011 Chargers hauling the vault would have probably spilled their transmissions on the asphalt in real life. Still, awesome.

Omg they're blowing up classic chargers! Noooooooooooo!
Oh sure, let the kiddies get all squeally over the new Chargers. Pulling vaults and stuff...what the devil...

Well at least the Mark VII in that movie didn't get blown up lol; it was lucky!
Heaven knows the one in "Drive Angry" went AIRBORNE before going KABOOM.
But it gave that old charger a run for its money 8-)

In Father of the Bride with Steve Martin there is one parked in the garage of the in-laws home and it re-appears in the parking scene in front of the home where the reception is held.

Yeah I get annoyed at the Fast and Furious movies because of the cars they destroy, although the majority of them are just clones and not the actual cars they are portraying in the film. Some Buick GNs T-Tops dressed up as GNXs, Charger clones, Chevelle clones, etc. However, I do know that five 1972 Gran Torino Sportsroof's they destroyed in the 4th installment were genuine. :cry:

I do notice Mark VII's pretty often in films, and they seem to always be used as prop cars or cars that become collateral damage

I was watching "Next Friday" (again) this weekend & saw one. It's in the scene out behind "Pinky's Record Shop" when the girl is eating the cookie & goes to chase the guy! It's a nice looking, White Mark VII w/the early, slotted Wheels w/the Maroon centers. It's parked out on the end, all by itself & is probably 6-8 parking spaces away from where the scene is shot.

I've seen the movie several times but never noticed the Mark VII before! Too funny...the movie AND not noticing the Mark VII.

Later.....Mater

Just saw "Get Shorty" the other night for the 1st time. In the beginning, John Travolta is sitting/staring out a window & right in front of him is a Bill Blass. As they leave the place, the walk right by it as it sits parked on the street. I'm pretty sure it was a Light Blue one...I hope to own a Light Blue (Metallic) one some day. There is another scene later in the movie w/a different Mark VII.

These cars have always stood out for me...whether on the road, the TV or in a movie. I can spot them quite nicely I must say.

Damn these cars are sexy...

I just saw this movie last night although I must have seen it earlier without noticing the Mark. Bad dude is in several different scenes with it, terminating with the open bridge where it ends up hanging off the edge.......can you say ABS?
