Humm? thought it was my imagination after looking at Alfa parts all day. Guess not!
Looked like a neat van AND didn't get blown up in the show! Actually that was part one, part II being next week. They better not trash it then!
Tony: The episode is from the FOX TV show "The Unit," Season 4, Episode 7, titled "Into Hell, Part 1" and shows an A12 pick-up truck with canvas top in two scenes towards the end of the show. The A12 is actually only visible for a few seconds. The pictures below are two each from scene 1 and 2. (BTW: After I uploaded the pics, I noticed the A12 doesn't have a front license plate in the 2nd scene)
Most companies suppress downloads of current TV episodes to viewers outside the USA (for licensing reasons). If you want to see the whole show, try downloading a torrent file (requires download software; links to the episode can be found via this search).
Awesome! had to be most likely someone in So. Calif who rented the van to the production company. The scenery is shot out in the Newhall/Santa Clarita area. Some of the shots are on the Newhall ranch and oil leases behind Magic Mtn. Thank you Ruedi for your effort. The owner could be in makeup.
Unfortunately there is little demand for film work here in England for my Romeo 2 Ambulanza, although my Citroen CX Ambulanza (ex Milan hospital & Turin Red Cross) almost made it into the Da Vinci Code...
You don't need a large SUV to get through traffic when you drive an ambulance, even if it is Italian & old!
If you want the see the entire episode, try Hulu - Watch your favorites. Anytime. For free.. You can search the site "The Unit Season 4 Episode 7" and will be able to watch the entire episode in HD. You have to endure a commercial on the front end, but the rest of the content is uninterrupted. (I'm not in any way connected to Hulu, etc. just know about this stuff due to job.)
I believe if you "sign up" you can forward content, but I've not gotten that far myself.
I saw a F12 Alfa Romeo van at the French and Italian Show located at Woodley Park, Los Angeles, CA. I am attaching a photo of the van. I did not see the owner and did not know the year or engine size. I believe that it was one of the service vans imported by Alfa Romeo.
I wrote a long topic about our van but for some reason I lost it from the AlfaBB site, so I shall start another here.
I am not sure if this particular ambulance ever had the hub caps as it is very original and the wheels are painted perfectly matching with the center hubs, I should have a look...
I've got a NOS (in the Alfa bags) set of 4 black plastic with chrome hubcaps for the F2 F12 trucks and vans.
1 set, but no idea what they're worth. Includes the securing bolts . Any Ideas? Offers?
PLEASE POST PICTURES OF YOUR (OR ANYONE'S FOR THAT MATTER) ROMEOS HERE!!
It's small and low-quality, but here's a picture of my mother's Romeo 2 transporter (1961). I'll post more pictures when I go home in a few weeks.
