The Ferrari Daytona Sypder convertible that featured in the first two seasons of the show was one of two replica kit cars built on a 1980 Corvette chassis with Ferrari hardware by Tom McBurnie for importer Al Mardikian. The cars were bought for the show after Mardikian lost them to the IRS. See more »

Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) is on the trail of finding Colombian drug-lord, Calderone, who killed his partner (Jimmy Smit, who would later get killed on NYPD Blue), when his runs into Rico Tubbs (Philip Thomas) who's out to avenger his brother's death at the same man's hands.Miami Vice affected pretty much every aspect of American culture in the '80's. Sonny was the epitome of cool. And it all started here, in the pilot episode/ TV movie. Perhaps it didn't age well, but I still like watching it every now and then. It can be seen on the Season one DVD set of the show.
