Graffiti museum

Many know and love the classic 1968 film “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and now there’s an opportunity to see it performed live by Modesto Christian Performing Arts at the Gallo Center on Friday, April 8.

The Modesto Graffiti USA Museum is proud to host one of the story’s most magical and whacky inventions - a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car. The car, which will be used and featured in the live action play, will be on site for all to see on Saturday, April 2 at 1 p.m. at the museum.

This model of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was built by Brad Egginton and is 14 feet long, 6 feet wide, with a valve board compressor that lifts the car 14 to 15 inches off the ground when she “flies”.

With cake, balloons, and souvenirs, Modesto Graffiti USA Museum officials are excited to host this free event to the public and welcome those who know and love Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to come by and see the whimsical invention up close on April 2.

“We are so excited to showcase exciting cars like this at the Graffiti USA Museum and we appreciate the opportunity to be a part promoting this great show at the Gallo Center,” explained Chris Murphy, board member for the Graffiti USA Museum. “We celebrate our love of the automobile and Modesto’s place in car history.”

The Graffiti Museum event is free and open to the public on April 2. For the live performance of the play on Friday, April 8, you can purchase tickets at
