I don't know how easy it is, but I am a MAJOR American Graffiti fan. I have a signed photo from most every star. It was the very first movie I ever bought on video, and on DVD. I saw it first run, and came home and shaved the hood emblems from a 50 Dodge we had in the yard dreaming of making a "Pharoahs" custom (first time I ever worked on a car). I even have a signed script. Along with getting a couple (yes a couple) of full on body hugs from Candy Clark ("Debbie") at an autograph session.

What sixties pony car had electric motors opening the headlamp doors it's first year and was changed to vacuum the second?

Yep 61, the 1967 Camaro had electric motors to open the headlamp doors on a Rally Sport while in 1968 they changed it to vacuum.

It's your floor.

At the Springnationals 1974, Connie Kalita set what was proclaimed to be a new world record. What was the record?

I don't think it was top speed or et. I am thinking it was something goofy like the fastest as swapping spark plugs or something like that.

Hot Rod mag proclaimed it the record. Tipping the can used to mean adding nitro.
