Texaco "cool Cars" Commercial Shoot With Our 1968 Gt500Kr

Recommended Posts

I had rec'd an email from a local Bay Area film company looking for cars for a Texaco commercial titled "Cool Cars". In the email they said they wanted two Mopars, a Cobra and a Shelby Mustang. I emailed them pix of my 68KR, and they came back all lathered up, and said they had to have it!

 

The shoot was scheduled for this past June 4, out at the Byron Airport, in east Contra Costa County (just north of Tracy CA).

 

Our car was the "hero" (meaning feature) car, and my call time was 9:30am, and was to be there until 8:30pm, as they wanted to get film in all the varying light, and as such rec'd the most camera time (hopefully it all doesn't end up on the editing room floor...)

 

It was a fascinating day, and the volume of equipment and people was staggering, quite a major deal (I was told the budget was $175k)....and then the camera car showed up...yeowzers (google: Pursuit Systems), the tech that was loaded onto the Porsche Cayenne was amazing. really cool stuff....

 

They also told me they would be digitally changing my car color to black...The Cobra was a Superformance car (which I got to drive), the Roadrunner was OK, as was the Challenger , and all three red cars look good onscreen ...

 

They are to produce 3 ads, one 30 second TV spot, and two 15 second internet banner ads, and these will be released on July 2.

 

Here is the link to some pix I loaded into photobucket. Enjoy

 

In case you were wondering, yes I was compensated, and fed, very well I might add, on both counts...

Tom,

 

Great stuff.

 

If the phone starts ringing when the Texaco ad is released, the KR may need an agent. :lol:

 

And production set caterers are the best!

Really cool!

Personally, I would leave it as green, but can't wait to see it on TV!

Can't wait to see the commercial. I don't think I would want my KR to be changed to black digitally though. I think she is beautiful just the way she is.

Congrats TD - glad you and Fritz hooked up. The 68 is worthy of being a star - maybe now it will get it's own garage !
