Given the flexibility offered by having two cars to work with, I wouldn't be surprised if they kept one in the US to speed up any on-location filming in the Big Apple, when they get to that point.
Also, the one seen near Six Flags was being transported domestically without it's roof rack:
On the note of potential New York filming... Hook & Ladder №8.
How do you guys see the likely depiction of the place? They could either dress up the Firehouse entirely to look run down, dress up part of it (Ground floor front, and maybe some of the side as well), or distress it all digitally?
I'd love for them to go the whole-hog and dress the whole Firehouse up for the film, but doing so means you've got the sidewalk and station obstructed for a longer period of time than if it was something small and concise, and you've got to pour more money into dirtying-up the whole building... As opposed to just a section of it, and you have less flexibility to film things in a short, tidy period of time that'd then allow you to move swiftly onto the next bit of filming in a more controllable environment.
That's why I think they might go for a half-way practical/digital approach.
Having some practical distressing works to the aesthetic/approach Jason employed in Afterlife
in trying to do as much practically, which Gil may continue, while distressing the upper storeys of the Firehouse digitally works with allowing for a quick rig/de-rig of any set dressing... And keeping the disruption to the H&L 8 crew to a minimum.
Either they'd go for applying impermanent paint to the walls to dirty it up, or they might build a duplicate facade which they'll dirty-up and vandalize, and stand it in front of the real Firehouse, then whip it away for any "post clean-up/reopening" shots.
