    Did this by capturing a frame change and got two images, thought it was kind of cool and artsy...

    The rollover car was actually a 2 door hardtop . THe post you see is a piece of 1x2 painted black and stuck there to look like a post.

    I cant remember alllll of the history on the all the cars . One of the AG 55's is hacked up now and a shell of its former self . Walt Bailey owns the other surviving car done to its two lane blacktop fame . WHen he found the car it had a camaro sub frame up front i believe . Instead of just going and throwing the axle back up front he actually had the man himself " Richard Ruth" get in on it so it would really be right . Pretty neat to read Walts story . He didnt have the original doors off the car , the fiberglass ones with the sliding plexi windows . He ended up tracking them down somewhere north of the boarder .

    you can find alot of infor on the movies 55's at , this is Walts site and has pretty much everything you need to know lol.

    "The Little Mexican guy" That was my buddy Manual Padilla Jr, he passed away last year.
     
  16. That's kind of sad. He played Jai, Tarzans little kid side kick, on the old Tarzan TV show (Ron ElY was Tarzan) in the late 60's.
     
  17. Candy Clark and Bo Hopkins have been at Back to the 50's a few times.
    The '32 was here with Paul LaMat & Rick, the current owner a few years ago.
     
  18. Notice the J.C. Penny cheater slicks in this pic, it's the only shot where you can see them.

    Thats a real shame. I talked a little to him as well as Bo when I signed up.
    I meant no disrespect

    It's cool man..he was a fun guy, unfortuneately he liked the booze too much and thats what got him in the end.He was just 17 when he was in AG, he had to have his Mom on the set when they filmed because he was a Minor.He also appeared in "Scarface" the scene with the chainsaw in the bathroom.He died too young for sure.

    I read this thread the other night and thought, my avatar is a picture I swiped off of The California Kid by just pausing on my computer during the movie, right clicking and saving like pictures off the internet.

    Hey Muttley,

    We should get together. You might like to check out my 55. Just got the rebuild back in and will be ready for Famoso soon. I might could use some of your waterslide stuff for the side rear windows. PM me.
