Thunderbird Illustrated - Fall 1974 - American Graffiti Thunderbird

 
Curt: Do you drive a white T-bird?
Blonde: A white '56.

We all remember Curt chasing that white '56 around town. It wasn't on screen on much and I have not seen many articles on the car over the years. Well this week I have a little something special for all you T-Bird fans. Thanks to an All Graffiti Special Care Package I received from Walt Bailey (Thanks Again Walt!!!) This week we bring you a rare 1974 article on Clay Dailys little bird.

Two Lane Blacktop Camera Car UPDATE 11-18-2014

The 55 will hit Barrett-Jacksons auction block on January 17th during their live broadcast. (set them VCR's)


It saddens me I am already hearing all kinds of crazy stories about this car and it's pending sale. Let me set the record straight.

This car has full documentation starting from the man who built it (Richard Ruth) to the actor who drove it in the movie (James Taylor)

There are lots of things about the car that only a select few even know about the car that proves beyond any doubt that this is "the" original movie car! (want to know them?? Buy the car and you will be debriefed!)




And as for the couple of guys who were chiming in and saying that the owner was just in the car for the quick flip? he has owned the car almost 15 years. That's not quick in my book!?



Look no matter what I or anyone says there will always be someone else out there who only reads half the story or interprets it in some strange twisted way and logs on to his old car chat room and goes off making half cocked statements about Two Lane or Graffiti cars. I have heard/read a bunch and I'm shore I will hear/read a lot more.
(those guys must not read....my site)

More interesting unrelated news in the works so stay tuned......
