(01-06-2019) — Movie fans who love Classic Cars remember the “Boss Wheels” from the 1973 movie “American Graffitti”. A white ‘58 Chevy Impala….a 4 door ‘58 Edsel,….that white ‘56 T-Bird….the ‘61 Ford Police car that “somehow” had it’s rear bumper ripped from it’s underside….the ‘55 Chevy post 2 door that raced that yellow 32 Ford in one of the key scenes at the end.
Oh, and then, the actors in the movie, Ron Howard, Wolfman Jack, and people we didn’t know at the time but would go on to pretty substantial careers like Cindy Williams, Mackenzie Phillips, Bo Hopkins, Richard Dreyfus, Harrison Ford, Suzanne Somers, Charlie Martin Smith, Candy Clark, Paul LeMat and directed by George Lucas!!
We caught up with Cindy, MacKenzie and Bo at a recent Hollywood Show in Los Angeles, and were told some great stories about the movie, the cars from the movie AND….key cars in their personal lives!
