|Celebrity owned or on
In December, 2013, several TV channels (the History channel, for one) simultaneously telecast a two-night, 4-hour Bonnie and Clyde show. Starting at about 12 minutes into night two, the couple was in THIS car. It is a Replicars, from 1976 or early 1977 - as of now, the VIN is not known. The color is different between these shots, but it likely is a lighting issue, not a different car. Shots are screen shots from the video and some publicity shots from the History Channel. In this scene, Bonnie, Clyde and his brother were posing for pictures of their exploits. The brother got a little too familiar with Bonnie and Clyde clocked him.

|Appeared in the media
Music Video appearance: 1975 Low Rider song, by the band "War" released in 1975. In 2016 the low quality you-tube video was spotted by Stacey, car 341. This song is familiar, and the Glassic makes a brief appearance at about the one-minute mark. Notice that it is not hopping like some of the other cars in the video. Leaf springs, I believe, make that difficult. This screen shot has been enhanced a bit. http://youtu.be/-xTGrfs5TXM
Movie - Lie Down With Dogs, 1995 - This homosexual-themed movie was brought to my attention through IMCDB.org, a variation on the IMDB. Where the IMDB is an Internet Movie Data Base, this is a CAR data base, cataloging cars that have appeared in movies. I have not seen the movie, but here is the IMCDB's badly out of focus screen shot.

Glassic featured on TV show
In Dec. 2011, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Tyler (Lead singer of Aerosmith and American Idol judge) were spotted in a TV ad for Oprah's 2012 season premier. Below are a screen capture of them tooling around in a newer Glassic (Repicar). There is also an inserted video from Oprha's website, with several minutes of them taking a ride in Steven's Glassic. (that clip may or may not remain on her site for very long.)
The above still came from an ad for the show..

This clip has been linked from Oprah's web page the morning after the
show . The car is apparently Steven Tyler's
|There are other references to some of these cars on the Annex website, I will eventually link this page to them, but in the meanwhile, I wanted to make note of them in one place.|
