Boxster needed for movie shoot

Hi everyone,

I'm helping a friend, who's a Transportation Coordinator for films, track down an Arena Red 986. Filming is in Atlanta, GA, and a car is needed for about three weeks, starting next week. The car will not be abused or damaged! It's mostly a prop, but will have some driving time. You'd be paid for your time and use of your car, and I can get you many more details. If you can help and are interested, please let me know. Thanks!

Adam

I suggest doing this if you have the car. I knew a guy who had his 745Li used by Don Cheadle, which is pretty awesome in itself, but also was paid 2K for the car to be used for a week.

I live in LA and know lots of people in the entertainment industry. Just remember, whether its your car or your house; if you rent it out, people will treat it like a rental. Not that it will be abused, but it won't be treated like your baby. Just sayin'.

Arena red is pretty rare That's going to be hard to find.

If they paid me to stay with the car and I was able to monitor its use, not a problem. To drop it off and pick it up after the shoot.... no way. Now regarding the wife..... I'll drop her off and may pick her up after the shoot.
