Great series!! I bought the Box DVD sets! Good memories!!!! Fun episodes!!!

I did like the Replica Daytona better, but Ferrari was upset, so they smashed it, and the show got the top of the line new Testarossa!

Some me of the cars were the greatest! I like the Porsche 906 chase, but the Slant Nose Turbo Vert was an actual bad *** ride too!

That girl that shot him, looked just like the girlfriend I had back in the late 80s. Some serious Deja Vu for me!

It is odd that Miami is my hometown, and I have only seen a handful of episodes. It aired on Friday nights, and that was when we went to the BMX track.

Ole Phil got some mileage out of In The Air Tonight.

If not the best TV show ever, easily in the top 5.

Sounds cooler than a pair of loafers, linen suit, and a pastel t shirt. But not quite Ferrari cool.

Ferrari didn't smash it,,the 3 cars are private hands,,and most scenes were ''fake'' testarossas [panteras]

better scenes were

1.phil Collins in the lambo ,''life is a rat race''
2.ted nugent blowing up the daytona
3.g.gordan liddy as the CIA spock
4.Danny Sullivan as a race driver ,racing motorcycles thru a parking garage
5.the off-shore boat race scenes
6.and the Glenn Frye ''smugglers blues'' going to Colombia

the show was way ahead of its time ,music,styels,cars,,

and it only cost $1mill a show to make

Never watched the series.

Love the old slant-nose 911 and the Testarossa with the one outside mirror.

Miami was my hometown too. Brickell Avenue in Miami and Alton Road in Miami Beach where they filmed a lot of Miami Vice was my stomping ground.
