What does Paramount Pictures do when they need to build a believable movie-set garage where a mechanic would be building a Mustang for the new Tom Cruise pic "War of the Worlds"? Call on the President of the Central Jersey Mustangs and Fords Club, Tony Malgapo, to help with the semantics (filming is in New Jersey). I find the "innocence" in Hollywood humorous, they never seem to get cars right. The script called for Cruise's character to be restoring a '65 Mustang convertible, but when the Malgapo looked at the car, he knew it was a '68. This is a good "behind the scenes" article on how Hollywood has to depend on us gearheads to make things realistic.
