Looking for a certain Print

Just a quick hello to you all... As you can tell i am new to this site. I am trying in vain to find a Poster / Print of the 1932 Ford Deuce Coupe that was in the American Graffiti Movie. The one Im looking for has the car infront of Mel's Drive Inn, with "John Milner" standing behind the car. It is a large size. I have seen this print at a car show in Kansas City a few weeks ago. It is a christmas present for my dad who LOVED the movie & seen the print with me.. The guy selling it had it customed framed & dad didnt like the frame, but the guy wouldnt take it out of the frame. So any help on this would be appreciated... whether it is links or what ever I would love it...
Thanks
Kerri

Looking for a certain Print

Ok well as you can tell im new here & i think i finally found the right place to post my question. A few weeks ago i was at a car show in Kansas City. There was a guy there that had a Print from American Graffiti. The print its self was poster sized, it had the 32 coupe & John Milner in front of Mel's Drive inn. My dad saw it & fell in love with it. It was the last print of that one that the guy had & he had had it custom framed needless to say Dad didnt like that frame but the guy wouldnt sell the print with out the frame. So now I am looking for a print like that or similar to that.. Any links or suggestions on where to get this print would be extremely helpful...
thank you
kerri

Welcome, There is a American Graffitti site, i don't remember the url though. Go to Google and do a search on American Graffitti and you should find lots of sites with info and prints etc. for sale.

sorry that is not it, including similar picture

Ok thanks but that is not it... this print was more like a real scene from the movie, it wasnt cartoonish.. i may not be explaining too well, there is a similar one listed on ebay item number #7556455049, where this one has like the sunset in the back ground the one im looking for has mels drive in in the background, the one im looking for is also poster sized. I do however appreciate your suggestions.. thanks

I love that picture and one day hope to have it. American Graffiti is my favorite car movie of all time and since I'm Mel, I love the Mel's Drive In, too. Very cool. Tim Frederick - the artist - does some cool pics.
