GraffitiUSAView – Ready to Rock

Graffiti View

We are ready to ROCK!
Graffiti Summer lives on here in Modesto USA! The Graffiti USA Classic Car Museum had our first car show last month with the American Graffiti Festival Quarantine Edition show. A special limited edition T-shirt was sold to raise funds for the North Modesto Kiwanis. But best of all, there were cars, chrome, rock and roll, poodle skirts and of course, safety masks and hand wipes. It was a fun day, with many photo ups for collector cars in front of a museum that will change Modesto forever.

It is time to celebrate our history, our cars, our people and the fact that there is one city in the entire galaxy that is the home of American Graffiti and George Lucas. The people, the cars and the places that inspired the film and the cruising and the friends that made Modesto cruise beginning in 1946 to the drive in on old US 99. Yes, friends, the Graffiti USA Museum will be on old 99, just a mile north of the original Burge’s Drive In. The museum will take you back in time, to the days when we were “Draggin’ 10th”. This will be a true experience with a real diner, a reimagined 1962 10th St with shops & businesses and even a tribute to Modesto Radio History
