1955 CHEVY - NICK's BLACKTOP BANDIT
Nick enjoyed watching the movie American Graffiti when he was quite young.
He just loved the black Chevy that Harrison Ford drives in the movie and
drag races near the end .. where it crashes and burns. Nick would always
say, What a terrible waste of a good car! So he set off on a journey to
find a 1955 Chevy. At the age of 11-½ he found it in southern PA. Now he
had to sit back and wait until he turned 14 to begin restoration. On the
DAY of his 14th birthday, he started! We are proud of the work you did
Nick, and glad that, yes, 16 years later you still have Blacktop Bandit.

55 Chevy Crash part 1 of 2 ...
25 years ago , the 3rd sunday in nov. 1988 at Baylands Raceway , Fremont
Drag Strip comes the most complete story yet of arguably a bonafide
Miracle ( not a nightmare) as been called by many . Hey he had minor
injuries and a hurt ego is a lesson well learned .On Wed. the 20th you will
get to see Don and here his story for the first time as he came down from
the hills he lives in and granted an interview plus the sequence rarely (if
ever) seen . Included here is the first of 3 runs and crash ( that being
the 3rd) . I Shot and edited this video and own all copyrights .
American Graffiti 55 Chevrolet Falfa's 55 THE REAL DEAL!
This is how the car looks today. This is the 55 Chevy that was used in
both movies..... American Graffiti and Two Lane Blacktop.
It was torn apart in the eighties and had lots of changes done by order of
its new owner....... Was made to carry the whole family...... work done by
Gary Charnock of Elkridge. MD..... so we know the REAL DEAL from the day it
was bought to the way it looks today!!
Fortunately the car retains 90% of its original parts on the car or in
boxes etc...... Body, Frame, Front-End etc are original to the car as well.
Restoration Talks Are Back On Again, So I Thought I'd Put This Video
Back Up On Youtube for Graffiti Lovers to see.
Car is owned by Denny Moran and Wayne Newsome. The car is driven, shown
and raced mainly by The Wolfman Baldoni & the Astros Car Club in Baltimore.
This car will still pull down a quick quarter mile times and can
often be seen banging gears around town! The car Lurches Forward
Franticly At Each Shift, Its WIld Looking To See It Run and Skate all over
the street!!!! Hooks Up Very Well On The Track!
Restoration talks are back on and plans to return the car back to its
American Graffiti stature are back on the table again. KEWL!!!!
Ive turned the comments off on this video and are by approval only.
Opinions are like assholes.

the other TWO LANE BLACKTOP 55 Chevy. Walt has a very impressive and
vast collection of photos and info there for you to enjoy. Walt owns the
55 Chevy Camera Car from the movie TLB..........
The car has now been SOLD (Jan 2012) and heading west....Now it should get
its restoration back to American Graffiti Movie appearance....... LONG LIVE

The Smoking Tire hits Supercar Sunday and the canyons with the Art Morrison
1955 Bel Air, one of the best handling hot rods around. We toss this 55

if there really is such a thing as a Hot Rod for drivers.
