We have the Village Roadshow film studios about an 1.5 hour drive away.

They've put out a call for cars to appear in a movie about Elvis. :-)

So, I nominated our 64 Fleetwood as a potential "Movie Star Car"

Filming is early next year, its $800 per day for static use of the car, annnnnnnd, an extra $200 per day, if I get used as an extra.

Hah, me on the big screen, I don't think the world is ready for my big blockhead to appear.

They asked for a few pics of the car......

hmmmm, not sure why the text appeared in the middle...... Jason will fix that for i'm sure.

Text moved to top. It would be cool to see the Caddy in a movie about Da King!

Holy Crap Batman...... this is the reply I got this afternoon.

"Thank you for contacting us. We are shooting a feature film in the Gold Coast early next year about Elvis. Your car would be very useful to use in the movie. When more information comes to hand I will be back in touch.

Great news Kevin. I am however surprised they offered 200 dollars for you as an extra. You sure you read it right? I mean doesn't it say you have to pay 200 to be an extra?

When you read the small print in the contract they will pay 800 a day for the car, 200 if beautiful Astrid is an extra and if Kevin is an extra he has to pitch in 200! A "Kevin only" clause. Can be found in any contract in Australia...  ;-)

ha ha ha ha ha ... ya big shit Anders.

I don't really care if I got a run, but getting the Fleetwood in, that will be friggin cool.

I'm of the understanding, the Fleetwood would receive 4 or 5 days work in the movie if it all pans out. To get $3,000 or $4,000 for a week of dicking around sounds just dandy to me.

When I sent the pics, there was about 8 all up, I included this text.......

****Please find photos and details, of our 1964 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special (true thing, that's what they are called) for your consideration in any upcoming movies.

The car is in, stock and original condition and of course, left hand drive.
These Fleetwood's, were the best that General Motors offered in 1964 and were often bought by movie stars, high end doctors, members of state etc.
The car is stored just west of Ipswich, so it can be driven to the studios with ease.
I'm also semi-retired, so it would be easy for me to get the Fleetwood down to you at short notice.  
We also have, the original 1964 Californian "black plate" license plates for the car as well should they be required.*****
I wonder if they do have a "Kevin only" clause...... Damn you Anders. LOL :-)

Sounds like a very profitable deal and the prestige of being in a movie which will no dough out live you 

Immortalized Forever on film  —SWEET ! ( Thank you very much ! In a deep voice ) 

Enjoy 

Kevin 

Not sure you know that Jason Edge was president of the Elvis fan club  in the USA for a number of years so this subject is near and dear to his heart for sure 
A good topic of discussion with the situation you have going on with the car and the movie about The King 

Enjoy 

Let's correct that Tony. Jason was President of the Elvis International Fan club that Stretched around the globe. If memory servers we had about 800 members from over 30 countries.  Our motto was "Uniting Fans From Around the World". Sort of inspired me to bring the 63/64 Cadillac folks together online! 

I did know that Tony.

Sorry I was selling you short on my  Elvis participation statement 

The scope of what you were doing is even more impressive being  an international organization 

I should know that at this point in time 

He was truly an amazing part of my particular generation with Rock and Roll in its beginning and me in my teens in the USA 

Remember watch him on a 13 inch Tv ( black and white and 13 channels — no remote ) with the whole family sitting around the tube watching Ed Sullivan every Sunday night that we all looked forward to 

That included my grand parents so his appeal was across so many generations of family that ALL fell in love with him which is one of the great  unique things about DA King ‘s fans ( all age groups  loved the guy ) 

Rock and Roll will Never Die — Rock on ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Enjoy 

I did a bit of googling on the movie. Being made by Baz Luhrmann, with Tom Hanks playing Col. Parker..... I would expect, it will be a very good thing.

I can tell you now.... if they need Tom Hanks to drive my Fleetwood, he's behind the wheel in an instance.

Shit a brick, I sure hope we get a decent run with the Fleetwood. 

Kevin. That is super cool! This movie (still untitled) is the only "Elvis Bio" movie I am aware of. It is supposed to start filming 2020 and released Oct 2021 the last I heard. I never knew they would be filming in Australia!  With Tom Hanks and others it is set to be a major Hollywood release. For every decent movie about Elvis their have been a hundred low budget, really bad movies and am looking forward to this. It is supposed to focus on Elvis rise to superstardom in 1956 to around his death and the drama between the Elvis and Col. Tom.
