Harrison Ford is 70 today, born July 13th, 1942...
Hard to believe....
did I say YIKES?
Every body who remembers see "American Graffiti" when it first played in the theaters ain't that far behind him!
I went to see the movie in Columbia,South Carolina and drove my old 1930 Model A pickup. HRP
Yikes. Would someone please slow down the passage of time? Thankyou.
"I ain't NO-body, dork!"
Yup...Danny, I was 22 when the movie came out in 1973.....I was dating "an older woman"...she was 24...
I was only one year older than you,,we had driven down to Columbia to visit a friend and he suggested we go see this new hot rod movie,,I said sure,,and at the time I thought it was the coolest movie I had ever seen,,especially when we went outside and found several people around my little pickup.
If I wasn't already into hot rods I would have been looking for one the very next day. HRP
"Ain't he neat!"
I went to see that movie 4 times that summer and it was great. It was my first official date in Jr high. Sad thing is I do not remember the Girls name I must of payed more attention to the movie than the chick.
70? where does time go?
My 79 year old Mother said life is like a roll of toilet paper...the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes...I was 17 when this movie came out.
Wow, so many cultural icons are really getting up there in years. No wonder it seems so many have been dieing off lately. But as Hotrodprimer stated---most of us aren't too far behind.
"That can't be your car,that must be your mamas car...."
So that means that "Indy" was 30 when he played Alfalfa in A.G.
Even at 93, my old buddy Lee would say, "It goes too fast!".
jcmarz, that's Bob Falfa...not "Alfalfa"...that was Spanky's pal.
I saw it, my first movie in my PJs, my folks took me. I am 43 this fall.
The club I was in back then all went to the local drive in with our hot rods to see the move the week it came out. Hot rods and popcorn at a hot rod movie. Great way to spend a saturday night. I was 28.
The wife and I took her parents to see that when it came out. I had never seen her dad laugh so much. I was 23.
Not bad for a field car ! I was 18 now 58 where did it go !
I know. Pun intended
Lets not forget that he also played Hans Cholo

I musta been 11yrs old and saw this movie at the Edward's Monterey Park on Garfield,just south of Hellman and the 10fwy.
I was 11 the first time (when it was on at the movies) and 18 the second time, when I saw the movie. Tried to live the movie in real life in my early 20's, whilst owning a couple of Chev's, '56 and '57. Bought the video and then the DVD. A friend played it for my 48th a few years back on a large screen telly. I never die of this movie..... never will as it's a benchmark to what many of us believe in. When life was simpler and there was a different perspective....
I was 14 when we went to the drive-in to see it, skyvue drive-in Torrington, ct. We always took "the wagon" 1969 Chevy Kingswood estate wagon with the 390 HP 427 motor.
I'm 53 now with grand children, it was just yesterday....................
I think I saw it the first time in 1974 or so. I dont think it got to New Zealand in 1973.
Cant remember how many times i have seen it since, but had the double album sound track at one time, have the DVD now and found the soundtrack CD in a music shop a couple of years ago.
Happy birthday Mr Falfa.
Happy Birthday to Bob, on Wednesday at the local airport I met Paul Le Mat ( John Milner) he is in Aussie as guest at Back to Brunswick Run "where were you in '62, Got his autograph and he liked my coupe.Sunday we go to the Run, will catch up with again.
How come you never hear about his twin brother, Al Falfa, any more? Gary
I saw A G with my parents when i was very young ,told my parents one day im gonna have a yellow hot rod just like that ,built one in 1991. still have it and a 55 aswell.Just watched it last week happy birthday falfa
Ol' Harrison will be at Oshkosh in a few weeks for the big EAA Airventure week long exhibition. He became a pilot after the movie 6 Days & 7 nights, and has been really into aviation, and doing good things for it, since.
