Lincoln Electric has teamed up with Picture Car Warehouse to serve as the exclusive welding supplier for the car-heist motion picture, Drive, produced by OddLot Entertainment. Starring Ryan Gosling, the indie film, which premiers Sept. 16, features vehicle-destructing car chases.
Picture Car Warehouse owner and founder Ted Moser chose Lincoln Electric to provide the welding equipment and consumables to restore and fabricate muscle cars used during filming.
Lincoln Electric equipment has a history of appearing in Hollywood motion pictures. The company’s products also have appeared in Ironman, Ironman 2 and, most recently, The Green Hornet.
For the film Drive, Lincoln Electric outfitted the Picture Car Warehouse fabrication crew’s garage with the latest welding and fabricating tools, including Precision TIG and POWER MIG welders, along with VIKING auto-darkening welding helmets and Red Line welding apparel.
Headquartered in Northridge, Calif., Picture Car Warehouse is Hollywood's go-to supplier for contemporary, vintage, specialty and custom vehicles used in television commercials, shows and movies, with an inventory of hundreds of vehicles.
