I couldn't find a thread on this, so I'll start one... How many movies have featured Cobras or Cobra reps? Off the top of my head there's....

Gumball Rally (1976)
Spinout (1966)
Bad Boys (1995)
The Love Bug (1968)
The Hollywood Knights (1980)

and Aerosmith's video for "Rag Doll"

The movie "The Great Race" had 4 or 5 Cobras without Cobra bodies so they looked old. Later they were turned into full Cobras. They are reffered to as the "Paramount Cars". There was a B series on TV called Cobra, and he drove a Cobra in every episode. Cheesy show. I don't know if you are counting tv shows. Kyle X Y is a more recent show on tv that I have seen driving a Cobra around.

A movie called "The Punisher" with Vinnie Barbareno and a bunch of people I don't know. Hilarious movie. Bad guy's son drives a Cobra.

Remember that TV show a few seasons ago about the guy with amnesia? That was a good show; wonder where it was going.

Autozone TV ad.

That tv show would be "John Doe."

He bought a cobra to drive around early on.

Gone in Sixty seconds has one on their list, but I can't remember if they show a brief glimps of one while they are "doing homework".

Tommy Lee's short-lived show last year where he went back to college. He drives on to the campus driving a cobra. A few appearances in later shows also.

Back in 1985 there was a music video by Level 42, Something About You, that featured a Cobra.

Hey keezling, I think that show with Anne Francis was called "Honey West". Man, she was hot back then. I guess that makes us kinda old, huh? Oh well, we've got our memories, plus we keep them alive and it keeps us young just driving these beauties. I'll be down in Oregon for Thanksgiving so how bout turning off the rain for me? Have a great holiday everyone!

Oh, I almost forgot, I think there was a movie back in the 60's called "The Killers" with Lee Marvin and Ronald Ray-Gun that had a couple Cobras in it too. I think it was the same ones that were in "Spin-Out", just painted different by the studio. Check out the "Cobra-Ferrari Wars" DVD if you want the real life story of our cars heritage.
