More American Graffiti

Factual error: John Milner's dragster sports Moroso valve covers at the meet held New Year's Eve, 1964, yet the Moroso website indicates that the company was founded in 1968.

Factual error: During the drag racing part of the film, they show an orange Plymouth lining up to race a red 57 Chevy. When the back of the Plymouth comes into view you can see a Direct Connection license plate with a Mopar logo on it. Chrysler's Direct connection line didn't exist in 1964, and the red white and blue Mopar logo wasn't around until 1972.

Visible crew/equipment: After Toad's helicopter crashes, and after the napalm bomb the survivors frantically radio in for a helicopter to land and lift them out. During this radio message, the cameraman's hand and the sound boom are visible at the edge of shot. (01:15:40)

Factual error: The closing song credits "The Ballad of the Green Berets" to Barry Sandler. Should be Barry Sadler. (01:50:10)

Factual error: At the start of John Milner's story, they show the drag strip from the air and begin zooming in on the track. On the outside of the tracks fence is a maroon 1966 Pontiac Lemans/GTO, a green 1966-69 Rambler American, and a white post-1967 VW Beetle, none of which were around in 1964.

Visible crew/equipment: When the helicopter has taken off with the wounded soldier, immediately before it cuts to the new scene in front of the police station, you can see the distinct shadow of the camera-person holding the camera move across the shot from right to left. (00:11:30)
