Hi Kurt,
I still haven't seen a single episode of the show!
Yes, Rob made it to the silver screen. I was so close I should have pushed him aside and stole the show.
Here is a picture I snapped as they were filming that scene:

Did they restore the 2000 in a show that I missed?

It ain't like it used to be, but it'll do.

Nope. Roadsters got no air time, not even cameos, just "extras" hired to be in the background.

The season (only 6 episodes) featured Skylines of several configurations in four of the six episodes, a 240Z in the premiere episode, a one-year-only Dime and snippet appearances by a few other cars including a Pao, a couple of Bluebirds, a Mazda RX7 and a few others (like the shop truck) scattered about in quick, B-roll side scenes.

Would hope that season 2 gives us some roadster love.
