I lived the 'American Graffiti' deal in So. Cal. from '61 to '73. We cruised from one end of Riverside, Cal to the other, from B&B Drive In across the street from the hospital, down Magnolia Ave to the A&W Root Beer by Hole Ave in Arlington. I didn't have a hot rod then....I drove my '52 DeSoto or rode with my friend, Lee, that had a 53 Chevy. Fast forward and now my wife (who I met at the A&W above) and I cruise everywhere in Virginia with our hot rod.
