The Axle Trick
There is an episode of Leave it To Beaver where one of the kids gets a car (Model T, how old is this?). I think it was Eddie Haskell. Anyway, he's so annoying that the other two older kids decide to pull a trick. They chain the rear axle to a tree so that he'll go screeching out out the driveway and jerk to a stop. This being sitcom TV, all we see it the two boys watching from behind a bush, then sound effects, then the rear axle with chain rolls into the picture and Eddie whining "Daaaaad!"
So I assume this trick was a common urban legend of the time.
59 - 62 discrepancy
Apparently one of the cars in this film has license plate THX138, possibly as a reference to Lucas's earlier film THX 1138 - can anybody find a WP:RS so that this may be added? --Redrose64 (talk) 12:40, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Discussion pertaining to non-free image(s) used in article
A cleanup page has been created for WP:FILMS' spotlight articles. One element that is being checked in ensuring the quality of the articles is the non-free images. Currently, one or more non-free images being used in this article are under discussion to determine if they should be removed from the article for not complying with non-free and fair use requirements. Please comment at the corresponding section within the image cleanup listing. Before contributing the discussion, please first read WP:FILMNFI concerning non-free images. Ideally the discussions pertaining to the spotlight articles will be concluded by the end of June, so please comment soon to ensure there is clear consensus. --Happy editing!

Would American Graffiti be considered the first of the films about the end of high school? Would movies like "Can't Hardly Wait" be inspired by American Graffiti? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:36, 6 June 2011 (UTC)amyanda2000
I have tried to Edit the "Legacy" section of American Graffiti, but my edit's disappear quite quickly. What I wanted to add to the "Legacy" section is that guitarist Jeff Beck - renowned through out the world as one of the greatest rock guitarists - is also a huge Hot-Rod enthusiast. He builds his own cars and has built a yellow Deuce replica complete w/ the THX 138 license plate. On his 1999 album titled: Who Else! - he has a song titled: THX138
New American Graffiti Jeff's All Graffiti All The Time
I would like to add an external link to the American Graffiti page. If someone(a human not an automated machine)would take the time to look at this site with the facts and pictures It would be a great addition to this page. there are other blogs listed so that excuse doesn't work. http://jeffsallgraffitiallthetime.blogspot.com 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:18, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
The claim that ILM enhanced the film for its BR release, deleted from the George Lucas article on Wikipedia, has popped up again here, again without a source. If a source cannot be provided I will revisit and amend the text.Theonemacduff (talk) 16:40, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
- If it's unsourced, there is no reason not to remove it. I would think such a claim, if true, could be sourced faily easily. This is not an obscure film, a great deal has been written about it, same goes for ILM and George Lucas, and their activities are well documented. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 19:10, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
