One of my favorite movies is 1991's The Commitments. It has a bay singlecab and some of the best rock&roll ever.

From the same writers comes "The Snapper" which features a bay singlecab. They must have liked Bays...

The movie "Crazy Canucks". Canadian ski team trying to make it big in Europe on no budget, they drive a bus from slope to slope with one of the guys practicing skiing on the roof. Set in the 70's, Owen Wilson really young. Laughing

On the current TV show, "American Pickers" you can sometimes see a nice white S/C parked by the shop.

It is a 66-67 split window.

I may be the only person in the USA ever to own that movie on VHS and DVD.
Way out of print, but then again, if you saw the film, you could see why.

It's a RHD late Bay used in various scenes involving nudity (!) and a VW bus, a great combination.

(and yes, I have a DVD burner...)

There was a bay in the Quentin Tarintino movie "Jackie Brown". It was even used to escape a crime scene. And a dude was shot in it.

Watched "The Incredible Hulk" (2008) this weekend for the first time... delighted when the weary Bruce Banner revives from one of his "episodes" in the jungle, dazed and confused. He stumbles along the road until he's picked up by a friendly local with a Single cab - apparently named "PICO" - chock full of crated fruit!

Awesome.

Don't know if this has already been posted...the television series from the late 1960's "Mission: Impossible", under Episode 8 of Season 4 entitled "The Robot" (1969)...about 28-30 minutes into it there are a couple of clips of a nice brilliant blue (?) bay window deluxe. See it on Netflix.

i spot bay windows in 70s films cause im a 70s movie fanatic and ive seen bay windows in the movies: Straight Time with dustin hoffman, Being There(1979), the gambler(1974), cisco pike(72), all of the dirty harry movies, cheech and chong up in smoke, and countless others. most of them are just little snippets of people who probably didnt even know they were being filmed lol. but i pause it every time to see if its a low light or a high light bus and try to distinguish what year it is on looks.

In the original Karate Kid there's a brown bay in the parking lot of the waterpark/arcade place Daniel takes Elizabeth Shue on a date.

In the recent film "We're the Millers" with Jennifer Anniston and Jason Sudeikis a hippie in a 76-77 westy gets stopped at the Mexico Border and tackled for having a joint on him. The bus looks incredibly clean.

New Trailer Park Boys movie. Looks like there's lots of scenes with a bus (maybe a Riviera?).

Here's the movie trailer:

Not Riviera I don't think, but rather Campmobile?
