Iola, WI: Old Cars from "Public Enemies" on Display at Iola Car Show

Posted on Wednesday, July 15th, 2009 10:21 AM by Scott Jentsch

JSOnline has an article about many of the old cars from the recent Johnny Depp movie Public Enemies appearing at the Iola Old Car Show in Iola, Wisconsin.

Because bank robbers like John Dillinger, whom Depp portrays in the movie, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd depended as much on their cars as their tommy guns, "Public Enemies" features plenty of 1930s-era vehicles. To get all those cool period cars, producers depended on casting calls just as they did for human extras.

Answering the call were quite a few Wisconsin antique car owners like Gundrum, who bought his Model A two years ago and spent many hours restoring it.

A total of 41 cars used in the movie's filming are expected to turn out for the popular car show in Iola.

The article interviews some of the people who owned the cars driven in the movie, and some of them could be seen in the finished movie driving their cars.

The movie was filmed in many locations around Wisconsin and in Chicago, Illinois.
