On Wednesday, December 12, 2012, a 1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe inspired by the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures film Gangster Squad will be unveiled in El Paso. The car’s first stop will be the El Paso Museum of History. The car will be on view to the public from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Following the the showing at the museum the car will be displayed at the Cinemark West directly outside the theater entrance from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Gangster Squad is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s fight to take back their city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time. The film inspired Mister Cartoon, the renowned Mexican American tattoo and graffiti artist, to create a hand-rendered design to adorn the body of the classic car.

About Gangster Squad
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his thumb. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.
Gangster Squad hits theaters nationwide on January 11, 2013.
