The history of Hollywood’s love affair with the automobile goes back to the early days of motion pictures. Ever see a Keystone Cops short with all those death defying chase scenes? How about more recent films: American Graffiti, Bullitt, Days of Thunder, The Driver, The Fast and the Furious, Gone in 60 Seconds, Grand Prix, The Italian Job, Le Mans, The Transporter or Vanishing Point. There are many more, but you get the idea.
When it comes to the actors from Hollywood’s Golden Age, many were car guys. Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power are just a few of the many Hollywood notables who owned the fastest and most exotic cars of their day. Actors who came into their own in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s, like James Dean, James Garner, Steve McQueen and Paul Newman raced cars when they weren’t on set.
Fast forward to the present, and you’ll see personalities such as Tim Allen, Nicolas Cage, Adam Carolla, Patrick Dempsey, Johnny Depp, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Christopher Titus and many more driving some of the coolest vehicles on the road.
The Television Motion Picture Car Club has organized this legacy into the first car club of its kind, a club where anyone who is associated or has been associated with the television, motion picture, music, radio, sports and motorsports industries can get together, connect with old friends, make new ones and share their passion for the automobile.
Our members have worked in front of the camera and behind the scenes on hundreds of hit television series and blockbuster motion pictures. Some are Academy Award winners, others are Emmy Award winners, Taurus Stunt Award winners and more. The club has also been featured in numerous magazines, as well as radio shows and television programs worldwide.
Members own daily drivers, classics, customs, exotics, muscle cars, sports cars, race cars, hot rods and motorcycles. We don’t care what you own, the common bond shared by all our members is that we are automotive enthusiasts who work in the entertainment industry.
We host private members only events and we also attend many public events each year. Information about our private events is only forwarded to members. This allows us to keep the dates and destinations secret from the prying eyes of the general public, which helps insure that our members aren’t bothered by gawkers, stalkers or the paparazzi on private event days.
The Television Motion Picture Car Club is a very special organization. Whether it’s our exclusive private events or any of the other events we host or attend, this is a club like no other. Add in the discounts and preferred treatment our members receive from many of our sponsors, not to mention the friends you will make and the fun you will have, and you can see why this is a club everyone in the entertainment industry should be part of.
