Bob's Car Show - Newport, WA September, 2010

Here's something you don't see every day. A gathering of American Graffiti tribute cars got together earlier this month for the annual Bob's Car Show up in Newport, WA. Ken Crawford, the owner of the T-bucket took this video and offers a nice aural description.

Anchored by Mike Famalette's original '58 Impala from the film, the line-up looks like an advertisement for the Ertl Collectibles die-cast models. I know they don't make the T, but they should. I've heard that Glenn Shimmin is currently building a Falfa's '55 tribute for Dave Acheson. If he does half as well as he did on his own Pharaoh's Merc, it ought to really be something.

There are a lot more videos of these cars in action on YouTube, so check it out if you can.
