They are filming the Miles Davis movie in downtown Cincinnati, with Don Cheadle playing Miles. They had a short blurb in the local paper about needed some period correct cars for the movie (based in the 70's), and I sent in a picture offering mine.

They just sent an email asking if I can bring it down for shooting on Wednesday. Trying to work it out now... but hope to be able to do it...

(Birth of the) Cool!

I'm a huge Miles Davis fan, and after reading about this a month or two ago, I was really excited that someone if finally telling the story.

That's kind of coincidental, I just saw the movie 'Rwanda Hotel' the other day - starring Don Cheadle.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif) Cool, let us know how it goes (and how much $ they offer you) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Steve, if your car makes it to the silver screen.....it will achieve celebrity status. Think valuation increase by 50% (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

that would be seriously cool - just to see your car (and honestly, any 914 in general) in a new, modern film (HD, blu-ray eventually).

right now i'm thinking about some weird-as-hell horror/soft-porn thing i saw once about some witches that kidnapped some pretty lady, and her boyfriend who was chunky and had a bad mustache tried to rescue her. the boyfriend drove a 914.

the miles davis movie will probably be better. but anyway.

I caught a glimpse if my 1960 VW bug in a scene in "Red Line 7000" at Riverside Raceway in 1965. The movie had a Cobra Daytona Coupe and a Mustang GT350 featured in an otherwise dreadful movie. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

Keep the paperwork for the renting, and get audio of Cheadle farting in the car. Put it in climate controlled storage until he croaks.........CHA-CHING $$$$$$$

.....and?

I was downtown today (on business going through OTR) and saw several nice, late Sixties, early Seventies cars on the streets there. Did you and your nice 914 make it for the "shooting"?
