American Graffiti: Drag Race Scene Recreation

Here are some shots of the recreation of the drag race scene from American Graffiti. We are shooting for the upcoming 40th anniversary of the film - organized by Cruisin' The Boulevard Inc.

We shot the recreation scene over two nights and two original filming locations in Petaluma, CA.

1. Frates Rd (Paradise Road in the film)

2. Petaluma Boulevard

The film starred Harrison Ford, Paul LeMat, Candy Clark, Mackenzie Philips, Richard Dreyfuss and Ron Howard. It was filmed locally in Petaluma, CA many years ago, and many of the film locations look amazingly similar to the original look of the film!

Here is a gallery of some behind the scenes photos from the two shoot days (or nights?)...
