Larry Fosgate, owner of a 1960 Metropolitan wind-up car, registered his car with the Midwest Picture Car Group, based in Libertyville, Illinois.
Movie producers look through the Midwest Picture Car website, and if they see a vehicle they like for a movie or TV show, the owner of the car is contacted.
The owner may then drive the vehicle in the movie or television show, or have an actor drive it.
Depending on the movie producer’s choice, the vehicle may either be a background vehicle or a featured vehicle.
Midwest Picture Car supplies vehicles for movies made in the Midwest.
