Established in 1960.

Jerry McSpirit founded Cars of Yesterday Sales and Rentals in 1960, but got into the film business in 1970 by a stroke of luck. A client was working as a prop master for a commercial for a new Revlon perfume called Charlie. The ad featured supermodel Shelley Hack rolling up to The Plaza Hotel in New York in an elegant car. The prop master called Jerry, who supplied a yellow 1941 Packard LeBaron.

The commercial was widly successful, and Jerry's contacts and reputation within the film industry flourished. The next year the same prop master brought Jerry on for The Godfather and The French Connection, and he has been working in films ever since.

Jerry continues to rent cars for weddings and other special events on a regular basis, and is a fixture at several New York City and metropolitan area holiday parades.
