The medical examiner on the reboot Hawaii Five-0, Max, drove a Thing in the first season with a "WARP 9" license plate. At some point, he got a Chevy -- an obvious plug for the main sponsor. Since the Chevy didn't fit his quirky nature, he just appears where he is needed (which come to think of it, is somewhat Star Trekkish).

I rented the movie "The Nice Guys" staring Russel Crowe and Ryan Gosling. Set in 1977, Los Angeles, I figured there would be a VW or two in the background shots. In one scene Russel Crowe meets a young girl in a 74 Thing. I would argue it is not period correct because it would be hard to believe that it would be painted just three years after delivery.

The new Matthew McConaughey movie "Gold" apparently has a Thing in it:

I saw The Falcon and the Snowman (1985) over the weekend. This is an interesting vehicle. Maybe an early car with RGBs but it later has a Fiberjet hardtop (possibly) on it. Large US Spec front turn signals with the early European rear lights. The exterior was painted blue poorly (see the overspray on the rear bumper), but the interior is yellow. Bug peashooter exhaust.

Haven't seen the movie but it's either a 182 Trekker or the image is reversed.
