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.
See Walt Baileys TWO LANE BLACKTOP Web Site for more info on this car and 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 GRAFFITI CAR AND ALL THE RACING SHES SEEN HERE IN MARYLAND!

Rat Rod Custom 1950 Mercury Rescue! - Roadkill Episode 21
It's always a good idea to buy a car off the Internet sight-unseen, right?
That's what a friend-of-a-friend of Roadkill did with the kustom Merc—and
maybe he made an even worse decision when he allowed Freiburger and
Finnegan to wrench on the thing and deliver it to him. This deal was set up
by a Roadkill fan, Jim Norman of Norman Vinyards in Paso Robles,
California. The road trip involves the '69 El Camino from Episode 4, The
Dog from Episodes 4 and 17, lots of burnouts with the guys from Hot Rod
