This is a pair of Milner 32 Ford coupes from the movie American Graffiti. Why a pair? Well I built them as a forum project "any movie car". AT the time I built them I had some bad info. I was told that the car was changed for the second movie. My intent was to build one from each movie. By the time I found out the truth I was to far into it to stop. LOL Any way one of the is the Milner coupe from the movie and the other is just a street rod. Both are built from the AMT John Milner Coupe kit. I will say that this is a terrible kit. Fit is way bad and the detail is bad. The kit is not very accurate either. The headers that come with it are for a small block Ford. NO Stromberg carbs. Anyway I did manage to get through the builds. Here is how they turned out.

I remember this pair Buck. Always liked them and I still do. I like the clipped fender version best.

Great pair of 32's Buck.

You do know the meaning behind the 'THX 138' license plate, don't you?

Yes I do. It was after his first movie "THX 1138". if you watch American Graffiti when they cruise past the movie theater it's on the play bill.
