Northern Reach Summer 2010 - American Graffiti Father/Daughter Style

Bonus Section
Some of Mike's personal pictures of the American Graffiti 1958 Chevrolet Impala.

Mike doesn't keep Bolanders 58 Chevy hidden away from the public. He is a regular on the car show circuit in the upper left hand side of the country. Often appearing with Stars from American Graffiti and even some of the other original movie cars. So watch for the 58 at your next car show or cruise night.

You probably won't find Toad's "Superfine Machine" too far away from a dead on copy of the 1951 Mercury Low Rider that the Pharaohs drove in the movie. Glenn Shimmen of All Rods and Custom built the chopped 51 Merc at his Colville Washington shop complete with parts right out of his A to Z Auto Parts yard also located in Colville Washington. Glen pulled out all the stops on his tribute build. He was even lucky enough to get some help from a few of the people who built the original custom for the 1973 film. The Yellow 1930 Model A is owned by Bonnie Corson. I hear you can't stump Bonnie with a Graffiti question.

Mike and Glenn have recently turned the dynamic duo in to a quartet adding Mike Acheson's Milner Coupe replica and Ken Crawford's Graffiti inspired 1922 T-Bucket to this summers mix. The crew will be at a benefit show for Cancer Patient Care of North Washington and Idaho on Labor Day weekend at Newport City Park in Newport WA. For more info check out
