CLUB OFFICERS

The Television Motion Picture Car Club is a private organization where those who work in or are 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. Founded in 2009 by entertainment industry insiders, the TMPCC is one of the most unique and publicized car clubs on the planet. We have been featured on numerous radio shows, television programs, in newspapers, magazines and social media worldwide. The continued success of the club can be attributed to the dedicated and hard working individuals listed below.

KEN LATKA
President and Founder

Ken grew up in Illinois during the muscle car era of the 1960’s. In the 1970’s he raced cars at drag strips in the Midwest and worked as a mechanic on a rear engine dragster team before making his move into the world of entertainment. He started his television career in 1979 at a Post Production house in Chicago. A few years later he was recruited to work at NBC and then received a job offer from CBS Television City in Hollywood, California, where he edited shows, specials and promos over a period of more than two decades. He became a Supervisor in 2007 and is responsible for overseeing a talented team of editors who format the shows for the CBS and CW (CBS/Warner Brothers) Television Networks. Being a serious car guy, Ken realized the entertainment industry never had a car club, so he founded the TMPCC.

CLIFF GREENOUGH
Vice President

Cliff graduated from the Institute of Audio Research in New York City and became the Chief Audio Mastering Engineer for RKO Pictures. A few years later he moved into video editing and became a supervisor at Pioneer Video, eventually moving on to become a DVD and Blu-ray Producer at Image Entertainment. Cliff is a Saturn Award Winner and currently freelances in production, as well as being an actor, voice over artist and television host. When it comes to cars, Cliff is a serious hot rodder. His white 1923 Ford T Bucket can be seen driving around town, on display at local cruise nights or at our TMPCC events. Cliff is also working to finish his next project, a 1955 Chevrolet 210 that we look forward to seeing at a future club event.

GLEN McGUIRE
Director: Celebrity and Studio Relations

Glen hails from the suburbs of Chicago and spent most of his time in the acting conservatories of Chicago and London before moving to Los Angeles. His path led to a career supplying audio and video equipment to the television and motion picture industries. Glen is a serious car guy who performed a ground up restoration on his numbers matching 1966 428 cubic inch tri-power Pontiac GTO, which has won numerous awards since its completion. In December of 2012 Glen represented the club on the television series “Beverly Hills Pawn” selling a classic 1970 Camaro from the motion picture “21 Jump Street”.

ED LEVITT
Sponsorship Coordinator

Ed is a veteran actor who has appeared on television, in motion pictures and more than 50 national commercials. He is also an automotive expert, who lends his expertise to those looking to purchase, lease or sell a vehicle. Because of this, he is affectionately called “Ed Car Guy” so he started a website by the same name. Ed helps those in our industry and anyone else looking to buy or sell a vehicle. His pride and joy is a 1964 Oldsmobile Night Eight convertible named Ginger (after the character played by Tina Louise on Gilligan’s Island) because she attracts so much attention where ever she goes.
