Where was this filmed? The tailights differed in each market. This one has non-door mounted seatbelts but I don't remember which years got these I know 87-89 did not have them I was thinking that The Corsica got them in 90 (I know my 96 had them)

It takes place in Washington state but I'll bet anything it was filmed in Canada....

The IMDB mentions the British Columbia tax credit under "Other Companies", so you're right.

Canadian Corsicas always had these ribbed taillights so it is probably an 87-89 model

And don't forget the canadian-only twin "Pontiac Tempest".

I haven't seen a Tempest that wasn't two tone (but mostly the bottoms were gray and this is a gray car) but it does look like the rear emblems do say Pontiac and Tempest LE, of coarse I guess the LE could be an LT also which would make it a Corsica :/ These cheapo hubcaps do not help matters...

Tempest: http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_images/1/1359/161/3395080004_large.jpg and http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_images/1/1359/161/3395080001_large.jpg
Corsica: /vehicle_274445-Chevrolet-Corsica-1987.html (from a series filmed in Canada, although it doesn't have ribbed taillights)

Based on the size and placement of the badges, I'm leaning towards Corsica.

like I said It looked like the the badge said LE (but I have an old monitor so it could be LT) and I was mistaken about the taillights, The early Canadian Corsica got the Bowtie Taillights just like the American ones, it was the Tempest that always had the ribbed ones. but I am still confused about the seatbelts as there is conflicting info all over the web I know that the Tempest got Door Mounted seatbelts in 1990 (which is odd for a Canadian car)

These are the emblems I was talking about but they do look shorter that the Corsica ones (and the one in this capture)

okay after too many hours looking over Seatbelt info and Corsica/Tempest pictures I have figured out the seatbelt situation.

1987-1988 Corsicas and Tempest had B-Pillar mounted seatbelts.

But then FMVSS 208 went into effect which stated that all cars manufactured after April 1st 1989 had to have a passive restraint for the driver, This meant an airbag or automatic seatbelts, So for the 1989 model year the seatbelts were moved to the door which is the cheapest 'automatic seat belt' as if you leave the belt fastened and open the door you could get out (but it is a PIA) So for 1989 and 1990 the Corsica and Tempest had door mounted seatbelts.

In 1991 GM added a drivers side airbag to the Corsica/Tempest so the automatic seatbelts were not needed so they moved the seatbelts back tho the b-pillar for 1991-1993 models.

For some reason GM moved the seatbelts back to the doors on the 94-96 model Corsicas but I have no idea why.

So For future Referance:

1987-1988 Seatbelts on b-pillar
1989-1990 Seatbelts on door
1991-1993 Seatbelts on b-pillar
1994-1996 Seatbelts on door

One thing that I find odd is that the although Canada did not have to conform to FMVSS208 the Corsicas and Tempests sold there followed the US-Spec cars (except the Tempest was not sold 1992-1996) There are plenty of examples of cars that did not get 'automatic seatbelts' in Canada that did in the US Some of the ones that come to mind are:

Geo Metro/Swift/Sprint/Firefly (90-94)
Chevrolet Cavalier
Honda Civic/CRX (90-91)
Dodge Viper (92-96)
Chevrolet Caprice (1990)
Plymouth Acclaim/Dodge Spirit (1994-95) this one is a little different though as they were motorized seatbelts not just door mounted like the rest of my examples.

I actually thought that door mounted seatbelts were illegal for cars sold in Canada

So after all of that this is a 91-93 model based on seatbelts and taillights (assuming it is a Corsica)

I never understood why Chevy took the Corsica's door mounted belts away only to bring them back either... just one of those unexplained automotive mysteries. It's just like why did the Corsica get an airbag in 1990 when the costlier Lumina didn't get them until 1995?

Notice it is a light gray, not the darker gray. That means 92 or later, and it still has black trim, so 92-94
