No need to scan the Yellow Pages if you are in need of a car repair in the Lake Erie region. Tommy Callahan and the rest of the Callahan Auto Parts team are headquartered in Sandusky, Ohio. The must see comedy, Tommy Boy, starring Chris Farley and David Spade was based in the northern Ohio city. In the film, Sandusky is portrayed as a beaten down, blue collar city with a failing economy. Chris Farley’s character, Tommy, takes over his family’s company to save the unsuccessful Callahan Auto Parts, the employee’s jobs, and ultimately revive the city’s financial condition. Throughout the movie, numerous signs can be seen displaying “Sandusky, Ohio”, however the primary filming location is in Ontario, Canada. Holy Schnikes!
