GraffitiUSAView- Time to Start our Engines

By Chris Murphy

We have a new fresh look, we are getting things cleaned up and we are all working hard to bring the Graffiti USA Museum to life.

We are rolling up our sleeves and ready to start our engines and celebrate our Graffiti, Car and Music culture at the corner of Coldwell and historic US 99, aka North 9th Street. It will bring to life a night in 1962, immerse the visitors in the sights and sounds of the Graffiti USA experience. Guests will be able to walk the “10th Street”, check out KFIV radio station, check out the stores of the time, see a movie at the Drive In and even eat in a classic diner. We will celebrate our Legends of the Cruise and will create a place that will attract classic fans from around the world and build an educational center that will excite the next generation of little cruisers. This interactive museum experience will tell more of the stories that created the Graffiti day.

The Graffiti USA museum needs you, your donations, your ideas, you collectibles and possibly even your cars. We are looking for community minded people to help up build this museum and make it a reality. Hopefully soon, there will be a new building to house this museum and we need you.

Isn’t it past time that we bring our history to life, create this place for the people of the entire world to come visit? You can help us tell our story, change our future and become the Graffiti USA center of the universe. Drive by and take a look at 610 N 9th St. Modesto, Ca 95350 The Graffiti USA Classic Car Museum is a 501(c)3 corporation. We hope to have our first exhibits open by Graffiti Summer 2021.
