It’s been a long time between updates, but here’s a selection of shots from last night’s screening of the classic American Graffiti at the Coburg Drive-in.

The film was screened as part of an event organised by the Melbourne-based Fuel Magazine, and in that scenario, you know exactly what to expect: hot rods, classic muscle cars, and plenty of them.

But first, here’s the trailer for the film:

Now, onto the photos.

For me, the real highlight of hot rods is not the overall package, but rather the little touches, the small garnishes and chrome decorations. Read on.

    Thanks for coming down guys, it was a fun night. I’ll definitely be organising another. Just got to order better weather next time, and start figuring out which movie to show.

    DASHCOM websites are springing up throughout the world.
    Instant availability is precisely what is triggering
    ebook piracy too. Trading invites many different sites is highly frowned upon inside exclusive Bit – Torrent community
    because it allows anti-piracy groups to infiltrate private trackers with less
    effort.
