Familiar 2001 Chevy Impala stars in Movie | Business
Just when she thought it may be time to start looking for a new car to replace her 2001 Chevy Impala, Mary Soltysiak Obetts got a call from a movie company while at work.
Mary is a former Grand Rapids Westsider, born and raised in Grand Rapids, now living in Portland, MI. but manages to be here on most weekends to spend time with family & friends. She works for Alert Emergency Equipment Group in Portland, a company that supplies police & firemen with equipment. While at work, Mary recently received a call from a movie company looking for a couple cars for a movie the company is making and low and behold, Mary had just what they were looking for. They said they would pay her per day for use of the car and would probably need it one, two or possibly three weeks.
As you can see by the pictures, her car has taken on a completely different appearance with all the decals and paint work, indicating the car belongs to the NYPD. Mary said she and her husband Phil drove two of the cars to Grand Rapids from Portland and not one car passed them on the way here. They look like the real deal.
