The police cars used in the movie were stored in our building at 2304 University, which was torn down to build 2314 University, the home of Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and MAP for Nonprofits. Jack and Jim McCann from our office actually got to drive the cars when we had to move them.
Chuck McCann, my father, worked with the the filming office and actually worked out a deal making him an extra for the day in exchange for putting in some outlets for them. He was in the cafeteria scene, but was later edited out.
It was a real thrill to be a small part of the movie making business, and we were even invited to the movie's premiere in Uptown. Were the Coen brothers good tenants?
Ya You Betcha!
