Welding Makes Sparks in Hollywood: Lincoln Electric Provides Equipment and Consumables for Car-Heist Film, ‘Drive’


This fall, Lincoln Electric will make its way back to Hollywood and the
big screen, teaming 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
features adrenaline-pumping, 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.
The upcoming appearance in “Drive” isn’t the first time Lincoln Electric
equipment has made it into a major motion picture. The company’s
products also have enjoyed screen time in “Ironman,” “Ironman 2” and,
most recently, “The Green Hornet.”
For its latest Hollywood adventure, 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
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. Owner Moser and his team rely on
equipment from Lincoln Electric to restore vehicles and rebuild or
customize classic cars.
“Working with Lincoln Electric and its products has proven to be a great
experience,” said Moser. “The company’s welders and consumables are top
of the line and are reliable for quick turnaround projects.”
Movie goers and car enthusiasts can admire Picture Car Warehouse’s
welding workmanship, completed with Lincoln Electric equipment and
consumables, at the premiere of the high-speed car chase thriller on
