On this episode of Reels and Wheels, Sid and James tackle another essential car movie... the 1973 classic, American Graffiti! They are joined by Brett Stillo of the 5 Minutes of Trouble podcast... and someone who has had some close encounters with the cars of American Graffiti and with its director, George Lucas.
American Graffiti launched an entire genre. George Lucas was looking to make a movie with a soul that also documented his youth around a long gone car culture. Cruising was how people kept up with each other because the internet existed and before gas shortages, over-regulation and insurance companies ruined cars in 1973.
