Hot Rod Legends
I was fortunate enough to have had the chance to watch the classic 1973 film "American Graffiti" during the era of Betamax tapes in the 80's. I can vaguely recall the story line right now, but to me the featured Hot Rod cars were really the stars. So when "Hot Wheels" released a 25th year commemorative diecast diorama of the "American Graffiti" famed cars, I immediately got myself one in 1998. Admittedly I'm a discerning VW and Porsche specific miniature car collector, but with those must-have Hot Rod legends, an exception to the rule happened.
The duo amidst Mel's Diner; a '32 Ford Coupe and a '55 Chevy 2-door viewed as two protagonist embodying the Hot Rod and Drag racing culture in the 60's Rock and Roll Era.
That yellow Ford Coupe is reinterpreted in a Vrod using a 1950's Stoll Coupe by Manilaghia....aptly named "Tweety"
If you're wondering about the Vrod version of the black 2 door, that will be named "Sylvester"...soon to come!
