Series truck needed for TV Pilot

My good friend Jonas needs a Series II, IIA, or III for a TV pilot he is pitching in Santa Monica. I don't know specifics on timing so you two can email about it. Ideally he may end up buying the truck if the TV series gets picked up incase you were thinking about selling your truck too! But in the mean time he just needs one to shoot the pilot.

Name - Jonas Elrod
Email - jonaselrod@gmail.com
Place - around Santa Monica

Thanks!

FWIW - you can make some SERIOUS money on renting these out to the "movie" producer crowd.

I wouldn't rent it if you care about your Series. You can make serious money if it's a featured or hero car and used every day for the extent of a shoot... typically anywhere from $100-$500 / day or they'll work out a weekly rate. But they will also trash your truck and bolt lighting rigs into it! Remember, the grips working on it are used to disposable sets... they won't... and I've seen it... think twice about drilling into the body to secure something. Then they'll just "return it to original" when they are done.

You won't make much if it's just a background truck.

This little FJ is $400 / day: http://picturecarwarehouse.net/cars/...a/landcruiser/

When they were shooting the Transformers scenes here in DC across the street from my building, they had blocked off 4th street. Apparently not everyone in the MPD got the memo. During the shoot an unmarked MPD unit drove onto the closed off set code 3 and creamed the "Bumblebee" car. It shut down production for days while they shipped another hero car in from Cali. Movie cars are disposable.
Think "Ace Ventura, When Nature Calls"

Photoshoots are usually a bit different b/c your truck is the subject and being featured. In movies and tv shows... the actors are the subject... and your truck is as Bill said: disposable. I wouldn't ever rent my house out to a film crew either

But for anyone looking at offloading their Series... not a bad idea... not sure you'll get top dollar though. I've visited the junkyard of picture cars and it's pretty sad.

So my friend's show is coming out Feb 3rd. We couldn't find him a series but at least he is in a RRC with a snorkel. Hopefully he flies me out to be his personal mechanic when it breaks

And it's on the Oprah network. And as Joel McHale jokes, no one watches OWN or even knows what channel it is.

Looks like a really cool program. I was wondering when it was going to air. When I rented out my 1991 Range Rover Hunter for the filming here in Phoenix I didn't get a whole lot of the details of the actual program. I'm glad I was able to contribute a very tiny part to it. For details about my 1991 Range Rover Hunter used in the show click here.

And they would be welcome to use it for future filmings, too!

C'mon over! You can install the new power steering hoses and body bushings for me. And it's getting a new (from my other 1991 Hunter) front seat.

Corny???? I've driven my Series cross the country, border to border and ocean to ocean, both latitude and longitude multiple times. I even did a loop around the Great lakes on one of them just for the fun of it.

I never felt I was doing anything corny in my Series truck. Unless my life would be considered corny by some. I drive Arizona's route 66 almost daily and am considering following it East to the end in my Triumph TR3 having already done the Western part. I don't consider that to be corny either.
