<what is an AD or AC?>

An AD in the film industry is an Assistant Director.  I think an AC is a typo and the writer meant AD.

As for:  
<Be sure to get an enforceable agreement on how you will be compensated for 
any damage to your car.  Be sure your contract spells out that the 
production company will be liable for any injuries or damage caused by 
your car.  If you want to make sure your car is treated with tender 
loving care try to speak directly with the 1st AD and let him or her 
know your concerns. >
...all good advice, to be sure, but I think impractical.  If your interest is an ego thing of getting your car in a movie or TV show, you might be asking a bit too much and find yourself (and your car) passed over.  Besides, your own insurance should cover all of that.  I would advise only that you insist that you be the only person driving your car.  You are probably working directly with a car wrangler and I think you should express your concerns to him directly.  The Assistant Director will likely be very busy and, even if he listens to your concerns, he will probably promptly forget that he even spoke with you.  Don't get me wrong, if you can get a contract spelling out all that then more power to you.  I just don't think that's going to happen.  If you're talking about the film shoot in Virginia that I have heard of, my understanding is that they aren't even going to pay for the cars.  Furthermore, I overheard someone from that film shoot say that they put the word out that they needed cars and got far too many responses, already, from Corvair owners!  Good luck!
