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


  1. Nice work again Jeff-
    As common as they are, I wish I could see the humor in this kind of article.
    Clay is the one who should file a lawsuit for loss of value and defamation of charammon as they are, I wish I could see the humor in this kind of article.
    They take away the value of the genuine articles. Like that Coke bottle I sniped on Ebay that Henry Ford drank from. (sorry guys, not for sale at this time)
