Cuyahoga Falls car dealership sells 40 vehicles to 'Captain America' crew for stunts, explosions

CLEVELAND - Hollywood is back in Cleveland for the filming of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

Crews transformed East 6th Street to look like Washington D.C.  Monday there were explosions, gunfire and stars like Samuel L. Jackson in his recurring role as Nick Fury.

Shooting movies in Cleveland is good for local businesses, but one car dealer really hit the jackpot.

Spitzer Ford in Cuyahoga Falls sold 40 used cars for use in filming "Captain America". All the cars had to be running so they could reach certain speeds for stunts and other uses.

Bill Burke said it was a lot of work locating the perfect cars from all 15 Spitzer dealerships then getting them delivered to the set.

"All makes and types and models, big cars, trucks, to make it look like an actual street where cars will be driving in the street. Some will be parked and some will be blown up," Burke said.
