Weird question: Is there a place I can register my newly-acquired vintage car for use as a movie prop?

I knew someone a while back who was asked to use her unique old car as on a movie set once. The movie was being produced locally to her town and they paid her to drive it back and forth all day. I always wondered how that got set up.
I just acquired a 1986 Ford Taurus with -- I shit you not -- 71,000 miles on it. It runs wonderfully. It's ugly as sin on the inside, but I figured that if someone were making a movie set in the late 80s they'd want the cars to match and, as I understand it, many of the first-year Tauruses were just driven into the ground then handed off to the kids.
Is there a place where you can let movie makers know that you've got a car they can borrow for their set?
