Anyone know or have a list of precise filming locations?...especially in or around Niagara Falls or Toronto? Like this one:
Blues Brothers 2000 made it into the Guinness Book of Records for the biggest car pile-up, a record previously held by the original film. Approximately 60 cars were used in the scene after Elwood says to the band, "Don't look back." Inevitably, everyone looks back and sees the massive pile-up. Portions of this scene were filmed in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
... "Portions of this scene were filmed in Niagara Falls, Ontario."
The pile-up was done on Argentia Rd. in Mississauga near the 401 and Winston Churchill Blvd. We know that info thanks to the call sheet scanned by the guy who built the Bluesmobiles for BB2000, Mr. Bill Boyd ...
Bill goes by the nickname "PigPen" and here's his album with 47 awesome pics
Apparently the crashing is right on Argentia itself ...
As for Niagara Falls, I'm not sure about what scenes might have been filmed there.
... I just noticed this vid by the "Wonder Librarian" uploaded just less than 4 months ago and she found the crash area on Argentia. Great work, she went by the exact pic posted above and that farm house is still there ...

When I was in Toronto in 2013, I caught a fleeting glimpse of the Mercedes dealership from the movie. Not sure of the address now. According to the video above, not all the interior shots were actually the dealership (maybe none were?).
When Elwood goes to see Cmdr. Cabel Chamberlain (Joe Morton) at the Illinois State Police building (and is followed by Buster), it is actually downtown Toronto. I remember reading that the Canadian Broadcasting Company building is visible. Not sure if it's just in the background or if it's the ISP building.
Somewhere I read that Malvern Gasperon's (B.B. King's) car lot where Elwood bought the Blumo was under the QEW Expressway.
