Universal then started filming another car movie. Would they use the Graffiti Coupe again? Sadly No.. Turns out by 1974 there was a new "Kid" in town
Pete Chapouris had recently built the car.
Martin Sheen would play Michael McCord
Maggie would be played by Michells Phillips (Mackenzie's Stepmother)
This movie was different than graffiti. This movie would have lots of twists and turns not to mention playing some bumper tag. So when casting this film it would required a star who could do his own stunts. "The California Kid" was born
Looks like they were none to easy on the Kid.
Reports say they had to replace the tires by the end of filming.
The Sheriff doesn't bask in that glory for long.
Like knowing of this Graffiti factoid is not enough another little know Graffiti Coupe fact is that the miles work but the trip odometer is inoperative. Someone should check this!!! Jeff
I don't know what's funnier? Is that I noticed that or that if you check the speedo in the Coupe it still has the same mileage as it does in The California Kid. Someone never put the cable back. Still.
