Teen Bag - 1977 You Can Learn A Lot From Candy Clark

I never quit hunting these early articles. I like them because they show the person behind the actor that you see in the movies.

Car Collector - 1991 American Graffiti T-Bird

Yet another case of everybody wanting to be rich and famous.

Step one find a car that is similar to one used in an iconic movie that everyone knows.
Step two restore the car and make wild accusations that is was "The Car Used In The Movie"
Step three hope no one checks the story out.

Sorry to sound so cynical this car may have been used in the Cheech and Chong movie but this car was NOT the car driven by Suzanne Somers in American Graffiti!
The T-Bird Suzanne drove is well documented and is still owned by Clay Daily the man who owned it during the filming of American Graffiti.

If you do a search of eBay (07-04-2013) you can find another T-Bird also claiming to be the movie car and it's not even a 56 it's a 57. I just wish someone would do a little fact checking before publishing an article.

On that note I have to get back to my garage now and keep working on the Batmobile the Mach5 and the Wagon Queen Family Truckster.  JH

In the 70's they all sounded the same.

I know I have been slacking lately so here is a little video fun I put together.

American Graffiti In The Media No.1

I wonder if George Lucas ever steps back and looks at how American Graffiti has woven it's way thru the world. Thanks George.

American Movie Classics - 1999 Harrison Ford The Early Years

Milner may have had a Chevy in his Ford but lets not forget the Ford in that wicked 55 Chevy.

Road & Track 2009 - Side Glances American Graffiti

It's pretty cool to hear a guy who was there back in 1962 when he says "If you want to know what it was like, you need to watch American Graffiti"

People 1974 August - Richard Dreyfuss A Fund Of Acting Talent

I just like the old interviews. When Graffiti was still fresh in actors minds. I really doubt you would hear of Richard Dreyfuss being interviewed today saying that he didn't think American Graffiti would be a hit movie. Jeff
