Re: Want your car to be in a movie?

Thanks for all the great offers!

This thread needs pics! :-)


They are in the middle of principle photography now.
The cool car will be used for a couple of shots afterwards.

I'll be in touch soon once we have a better date.

Re: Want your car to be in a movie?

Looks like they will need the "new-ish" car on Saturday, June 8th by 7am.

They will shoot the "older" car in additional photography, time and date TBD.

Want your car to be in a movie?

My friend Craig is starting filming on his second movie in a couple of weeks... He is looking for two cars. #1 Something older but stylish or cool - something a late 20's, single architect might drive. Maybe a BMW 2002 or old mini, or? #2 Same guy but a little older with a family and more money. May...

Re: E-Stock Miatas

If that dif was available in that car from the factory then yes, you can run it in ES. If you have a car that didn't come with the Torsen, but it was available in that year, but only combined with certain other options, then you also need to add those options. Now some options can be ignored because...

Re: WTR (Want To Rent): a good DSLR and maybe a 300mm lens

Jill says you can borrow her old rig for free.

D70 and a Tamron 28-300 zoom.
You're welcome to borrow it for a few days to try it out. It's probably a little better than an iPhone.

I also have an old Sigma 400 and a F3 if you're feeling artsy... :-)

I'm pretty sure there isn't an internal reservoir double adjustable shock on the market that fits inside the OEM Lotus Elise spring...
OTOH, Elise owners can probably afford to have multiple sets of shocks they can bring to every event.

Re: Thank you Mike Simanyi and all of PSCC

I enjoyed driving the course very much, so thanks Mike! :) My only problem was that after walking it twice during the short lunch break, I simply didn't remember it very well. This explains why my runs got progressively faster from first to fourth. In fact, my last run was full 6 s faster than my f...

Kurt, I think you should consider buying it.

It's likely you heard about this event before I did.
