    American Graffiti

    I watched American Graffiti again today... hadn't seen it in years...

    I which I lived in that generation. It has come & gone. We cruised in the late 80's, but not the same... now it is totally gone. when that movie was over, I felt like I morned a moment in time we seem to keep searching for. Makes me want a 55 chevy....

    Below is a PIC of a 70 Camaro I drove to High school . This particular car was driven in (1981-1982)..The Pic is exactley as the car was driven each day.....350ci with 300hp double hump heads..292 duration 460 lift Alliance camshaft ( from AutoShack)....Tunnel ram pair of 465 Holley carbs...410 gear, vega Tq Converter,Quick silver shifter, (did all the work myself in a dirt floor barn)

    i would drive the car to the local strip after school on Thursday Nights and run the gamblers race...it would run 7.60's as you see it ..street tires and thru the Mufflers.

    Yes i had a Punk Rock Mullet hair Cut, with Lightening Bolt earring, Members only Jacket and Sabego shoes...Saturday Nights was Parachute Pants and Stacy adam Points.... :wink:

    As you can see the Conferderate flag bandana looped around rear view Mirror..i the bottom sticker was a 1982 inspection sticker, the sticker on top was my School sticker parking permit.

    You need to bring your cruiser to Summer avenue here in Memphis, every Friday, Saturday night they still shoot the loop down here.

    Growing up out west in New Mexico & graduating in 83, it was all about the so cal VW scene out there.
    I had a 68 bug with a SS merged header, weber carb, bosch 009 dizzy, nerf bars, lowered up front, empi wheels, the whole nine yards minus paint of course, primer gray was the norm, who had money for paint in high school?

    Central avenue was where it was happening, ol~route 66.
