A 4 cylinder LC/LJ gets wiped out in "Running on Empty" towards the end of the movie.

There is also a Torana in the movie "Midnight Spares" but you only get a glimpse of it.

In an old 80s Hong Kong low budget martial arts film my dad brang home years back there was a Black LH sedan with flames on it, no bonnet and a big chrome engine that got into a chase with a silver charger, the film was filmed half in hong kong and the other half in NZ.

Iv been looking for a copy of it for years but have had no luck, i think its Aussie tittle was "Mad Mission".

Also notice at the end the car that plows into the kitchen is a cortina not a torana.

New Series James? What is it called?

I know in the Blue Murder production that was on ABC a few years ago (details life and times of Rogerson, Neddy Smith et al) there was a Chamois LX Sedan that got wiped out. Was towards the start of the movie and the car was used as a get away car for a bank job or something.

EDIT - Just watched the youtube above. Classic stuff !! The engine note seemed a bit wierd though?

It is Blue Murder and it was a light coloured Torana, thought it was a UC at a quick glance.

When the car crashes into the kitchen in the restuarant, correct me if I am wrong but it looks like a TE Cortina was used...

Mad clip though.
