A picture of the 1956 Ford Thunderbird from the 1973 film American Graffiti directed by George Lucas about a group of teenagers in a small time Californian town in 1962 deciding to stay home or leave to go to college. The cast list featured many actors who would go on to become famous. Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard, Harrison Ford, Cindy Williams, Charles Martin Smith, Suzanne Somers, Bo Hopkins with a cameo by the legendary DJ Wolfman Jack. In the film this car is driven by a beautiful unnamed blonde (Suzanne Somers) whom Curt (Richard Dreyfuss) falls in love with but never seems to meet despite putting an appeal out on a local radio station hosted by the iconic DJ Wolfman Jack playing himself.
I photographed this replica when I was in America in 2015 for my elder daughter's wedding.
