WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The Longest Ride, based on a Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name, is seeking cars made in the 1930's-1950's for scenes that will be filmed soon.

The cars must be in their original state or restored to their original state.

All car scenes will be in and around the Wilmington area including a four day stretch in Wallace.

"Basically, this is a flashback scene for one of our main actors and these cars will be used to line the streets, some of them will be driven, some of the car owners can come out and drive their cars throughout the day," explained Tim Walters, the picture's car coordinator.

If you would like to have your car featured in the film, you can either email Walters at tlrcars@aol.com or call him at 910-444-2896.

Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson (Under the Dome), Alan Alda (M*A*S*H* and The Blacklist) and Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones) will also star in the movie.

In the novel of the same name, an elderly man is trapped in his car after a wreck and starts to reminisce about the love of his life.
