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!

Satan's Rat-Rod: 1931 Ford - /BIG MUSCLE
• Henry Kessler
The engine is out of a 1952 Diamond-Reo tractor and makes 1,640 lb-ft of
torque. The chassis is pieced together from old light poles from the City
of Hollywood. The body... that's from a 1931 Ford. Meet Gretchen, one of
the coolest rat-rods we've ever seen and a ride that turns heads wherever
it goes. This ain't no hybrid, instead it's a black smoke belching,
gasoline guzzling, animal of a car that's not only amazing to look at, but
with some cool hidden engineering, has the ability to surprise even the
most hardened of motor-heads.

The 2012 Fastest Street Car in America! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 19
This episode of HOT ROD Unlimited screams with action from 200-mph street
cars at one of the most grueling events in all of motorsports: HOT ROD Drag
Week, presented by Gear Vendors. This is the most brutal test anywhere of
real drag-racing, street-driven cars, as the competitors hit the road for
1,400 miles to race five times at four different drag strips in five days
in a battle to post the lowest average elapsed time at the end of the week.
The winner is crowned the HOT ROD Fastest Street Car in America. In this
video, we'll follow the chase for that title in Drag Week's most outrageous
class, called Unlimited. Imagine cars that run 7 seconds in the quarter
mile, in excess of 200 mph, and then drive on public roads—in the rain,
over potholes, whatever it takes—to make it to the next race day to do it
again. Five times. Ever see a 2,800-horsepower car hauling its
own trailer full of tools and parts? You will here. When you wonder how the
staff of HOT ROD could ever make the statement that a Lamborghini Aventador
"isn't $400,000 fast," this video will prove why with legit American street
cars in a battle of speed and survival.
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
