So, I happened to be channel surfing the other day, and I happened upon a showing of " The Fly" The two lead characters were climbing out of a taxi and to my surprise it was a Fairmont! So I'm wondering if any of you guys have seen F/Z's in any other tv shows or movies?

Well the only one that come to mind was in a movie. It was the "Electric Horseman" with Robert Redford. The character that Jane Fonda plays drives a 78 or 79 Futura towards the end of the movie, she ends up ditching it in desert.

Here are all the ones I know of.
If you go the the F/Z Video's section of the Fairmont 302 site you can view the clip from Stroker Ace.
You can look up just about any kind of car on the site below, just go to the home page.

The 3-wheeler in Stroker Ace was the most memorable, most other times you saw a Fairmont in the movies, it was a background car or an "innocent bystander" car that got wrecked in a chase scene or when someone came around a corner too fast and wiped out a parked car or three. In TV, they were just regular cars driven around by regular people, nothing exciting stands out because they were never fast enough to be good chase scene material.

There were Fairmonts in "Born Losers" which is the first Billy Jack movie. I watched it on TV the other day.

I was watching Jail Break and the one shows characters had a picture with a 78 merc zephyr in it that they kept showing, and talked about for a bit.






I dont like the show, my mom just had it on...

The name of the show is Prision Break. Just say'n.... But yeah it was pretty sweet to see that. The best line was....

Lincoln: This pictures a fake
Mahone: How do you know that?
Lincoln: Mike was born in 76 that car is a 78 Zephyr

I have noticed many F/Zs in Movies and TV that I have not included on the screenshots page of my website. "No Country For Old Men" has a Zephyr pictured prominently during a major scene, but i was blown up. "Iron Eagle" has shots of Air Force Fairmonts in it as well as "Wargames".

I did find a couple of videos on youtube a long time ago about the 1989 bay bridge collapse during the Oakland Earthquake. Here are the links:
