Hi, Dennis,
I can't think of any movies starring a Sable; movies are usually made with more exotic cars, which are generally provided gratis by manufacturers for promotional considerations. Sables are nice cars, but they're just considered to be a "deluxe" Taurus.

Well there is a Gen 3 Taurus in Spiderman 2 when he falls off a building and hits a Focus, there is a Gen 3 parked right in front of it. Not the star of the movie obviously but it's in there. I will keep thinking.

One of the National Lapoons Vacation movies featured a woodie Taurus wagon. I think it got trashed at the end.

No, the Taurus in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation didn't get trashed (although they didn't treat it good either).

There was a G1 Sable in Last Action Hero. The "govinator" drove it into a Checker cab.

"Mercury Sable, airbag standard. Checker cab, no airbag!"

In the move The Conehead, they drove a red G2 Sable with a sunroof/moonroof/hole-in-the-roof. Perfect car for an alien family. It was a driver's ed car with a second steering wheel.

That's about all the movies I can think of with a Sable being driven by the main charaters.

Nope. In the original Vacation movie, they abused the Family Truckster (which was a modified Ford LTD Country Squire). I think that's what you'e thinking of since they jumped it like 50 ft and like everything was falling off by the end of the movie.

I recall some rap/hip-hop video where the cops had Grand Marquis instead of Crown Vics. Funny.

A gen 1 SHO is featured numerous times in Terminator 3. It is rear ended in one scene and the guy gets out and says "HEY, thats my company car!" or something like that. Then it is seen on the street a few times throughout the movie.

The Truman show has a gen 3 SHO in it a few times. The car mysteriously turns into a SLO a few times, too.

Gen 2 SHO has a big part in the movie Bloodwork. It even does a burn out. One of the main charchters drives it.

Gen 1 SHO is Tim Allens car in Santa Clause.

Gen 3 Sable is at the end of Double Jeapordy.

Gen 4 Taurus in High Crimes.

Taurus AND Sable cop cars in this older movie with Samuel L. Jackson...cant remember the name though.

For those that watched season 3 of the Shield...about halfway through...Vic got rid of him GM had got a Gen 1 Taurus...and from the looks and what I saw it looked to be a blueish Gen 1. A few high speed chases too, so when It comes out on DVD or is shown on TV again some of you may be interested.

1- Why is this in Maint and Repair? Should be in Odds and Ends

2- in one of Ludicis' videos, he has an F-150 with a Caddy logo on the front. My friend pointed it out to me...I didn't even notice, but then he said "Cadillac doesn't make trucks..." I think it was the video where he was eating fried chicken at the end.
