The movie starts out in 1986 with Brian Wilson walking into a Cadillac Dealer in Los Angeles. He wanted to buy a Cadillac and Elizabeth Banks who plays Melinda Ledbetter meets him in the showroom they discuss the car and the first 9 minutes of the movie takes place in this Very Cadillac.

It is a true story of How the Beach Boys Brian Wilson actually met his second wife Melinda Ledbetter she was an actual Cadillac saleswoman in Los Angeles in 1986. This vehicle was used in the movie to depict the first encounter.

The car Brian Wilson actually bought was a Brougham. The movie company for Love and Mercy sent out emails and went on a long search to find just the right car which they did, nbsp;they had the Brougham to be used. Upon arriving in Los Angeles for shooting this 1986 Fleetwood was to be a back drop vehicle. Brian Wilson personally hand-picked the car and changed the script to accommodate this vehicle to be used instead of a Brougham because it best suited his memory of that actual day.

John Cusack playing the role of Brian Wilson with Elizabeth Banks playing the role of Melinda acted out the scene to perfection. Brian was so captivated with the car and his memory of his first meeting with his wife shortly after the scene was completed he asked the current owner of this Cadillac if the car was for sale and if he could buy it as a gift for Melinda. Although the car brought back fond memories, nderstandably she was not excited about having a 1986 Cadillac in 2015. Brian regrettably told our client he would not be buying the vehicle.

After the final scene of shooting we drove the car around the building and parked it right behind the Flatbed to take it back to San Diego the car was then sent back home where it was unloaded back into our showroom where it sat, obody has driven the car since John Cusack, o one has sat in the passengers seat since Elizabeth Banks and The car still smells like the perfume Elizabeth Banks was wearing that day.
