Coolest Car Movie Night. Ever.



The Television and Motion Picture Car Club put together a poster for the event.

There are a lot of Mopar car clubs in the world; in fact, you may be a member of one yourself. And it seems as though there are an infinite number of car clubs of all kinds, clubs for Chevys, Fords, MGs, Land Rovers, cars from a certain country or era -- there are countless bonds that can tie a car club together.

One of the most unique has to be the Television and Motion Picture Car Club (TMPCC). If we asked you to name all of the people that you can think of who work in the television and motion picture industry in just ten seconds, we’d bet that the names you come up with will be mostly famous actors, producers and directors. Well, some of the people on your list might very well be members of the TMPCC. All that is required for membership is to either work in or have worked in the television, motion picture, music, radio sports or motorsports industries and have a passion for cars…and there are a lot of celebrities and others behind the scenes who meet that requirement.

But go further behind the camera. Have you ever watched the credits roll at the end of a movie? For the handful of actors, producers and directors that you could name for any given movie these days, there are a vast number of people behind the scenes who make the movie possible. Stunt people, writers, editors, gaffers, prop masters, visual and sound effects techs, accountants, administrators, and on and on. The same goes for television production. All of these good folks meet the standard for membership in the TMPCC making for a rich, eclectic base of members.

I am privileged to be a member of the TMPCC due to a misspent childhood working in front of both television and motion picture cameras. If you are truly bored and have nothing else to do, Google “Rickey Cordell” and you’ll see what I mean. The 1960s and ’70s were a wild time period, much less to grow up on backlots and location shoots. Anyway, I joined in 2016 and thus was able this year to attend, along with my wife, one of the most special events that this most special club puts on every year, their Annual Movie Night.
