Well, if that's true it's really sad that someone would stop so low as to misrepresent themself and a classic like that. He even had the OPA race officials believing his story.

Bit of trivia FWIW.
The sniper with the yellow shades in that film clip is Jim Zubiana. He also played the assassin with the super quick cross draw in another episode.
It was were he exited a car and shot over the hood IIRC. People think that his draw was sped up on film. He actually drew his 1911 that fast.
He was a very good shooter who competed in the Southwest Pistol League in southern Calif.

So the owner himself made those statements?

The owner made a fake plaque stating it was, how do I know? Because I am the previous owner of that exact boat and one of the admins of the 38 Scarab KV Miami Vice FB Page.
I guess my plaque joke is still getting some mileage after all these years?

Mine the EXACT plaque….except I crossed out DJ’s name an put mine there…..probably do the same with my “new to me” 38 AVS Scarab.

Maybe Tony, Wayne, and I will share all the “plaque” history with y’all…? It does keep the fakes and posers down a little…..or maybe not?

Started my love of offshore life! Still love those boats other than needing to update the helm and cabin they still stand up today!

Regardless of the authenticity of the Scarab it is a nicely done cool, old boat. It was the pace boat for us at Eastlake and the coolest pace boat we have had in a while. Probably had some nice video of it running but unfortunately that camera ended up in Lake Erie. The baby boat with the same paint scheme was a cool piece also.

One of the most memorable scenes from Miami Vice other than the In the Air tonight montage. Still one of the best Hollywood boating scenes out there , I always get a kick out of watching Tubbs just Dying in that scene.

[QUOTE = waveryd; 4799427] Independientemente de la autenticidad del Scarab, es un barco viejo y genial bien hecho. Fue el barco de ritmo para nosotros en Eastlake y el barco de ritmo más fresco que hemos tenido en mucho tiempo. Probablemente tenía un buen video en ejecución, pero desafortunadamente esa cámara terminó en el lago Erie. El bote bebé con el mismo esquema de pintura también fue una pieza genial. [/ QUOTE]

Creo lo mismo, a pesar de que todos estos botes son increíbles
