For all UK members!!

Post by NWMO » Tue Nov 12, 2019 11:30 am

Dear United Kingdom members,

The site has been contacted by a company that provides automobiles for movie scenes, etc., and a Tercel wagon has been requested. I believe the movie is being shot in the Manchester area, if you are interested, please let me know here or via PM and I will share the contact information. I have no idea what the compensation is like, but there is payment for your time and trouble and he has assured me the car would be in the background or at most drive by during a scene, no stunts, crashes, etc.

I just PM'd the ones I could remember with links to this post. I just saw the Breaking Bad Sequel 'El Camino' Maybe Jesse Pinkman moves to London to start up operations again and wanted another Tercel?

Maybe get in contact anyway. if it rolls sometimes they just need them in the background. Or maybe they will pay for it to be fixed for you? just an idea.
I've had my Corolla 4wd used in a few TV shows in Australia. It's a good little earner.

typically they will clean and detail the car for you, if that is what they want in the movie (it would be if they are doing a "period" peice, with all vintage cars on the streets).

they might even fix it for you, just so they have something to use in their shots.

Unfortunately it needs some welding , the clutch replacing , a respray and an MOT for the road so i cant see them really paying for all that.
