Y’allywood Film Cars doesn’t own all the vehicles it promotes. Instead, it’s a booking agent, recruiting owners of a whole range of cars. The agency says it has automobiles dating all the way back to the 1920s, all of which are running and reliable. Some are in immaculate cosmetic condition, while others look more worn, so whatever feel filmmakers want they can achieve.

The most famous car from Y’allywood Film Cars, a white 1969 Plymouth Valiant, is the property of one of the agency’s owners, Beth Aylward. It was during filming of the Netflix series that the production crew gave this ride its nickname, Howdy. That same car has been used in numerous scenes, particularly in downtown Hawkins, Indiana as well as at the high school.

In season 3 of Stranger Things when the Starcourt Mall parking lot was shown brimming with vehicles, Aylward claims the vast majority were there through Y’allywood Film Cars’ efforts.

If you have a classic car or even one that’s more modern and want to have it featured in television shows or movies, feel free to contact Y’allywood Film Cars. Castings aren’t limited to just cars and trucks, since there’s a need for boats, military vehicles, campers, vintage fire trucks, motorcycles, and pretty much anything else you could imagine. While the agency is based in Atlanta, it does work in the surrounding region. There are similar agencies scattered around the United States if you’re still interested in making some extra cash and seeing your car on the big screen.
