American Graffitti or Grease type movies?

A co-worker of mine (he just turned 18 less than a month ago), asked me to find him some movies that show kids/young adults growing up in the 50's/60's.

His cousin is a big fan of Cry-Baby, so he's seen that, and he said he had seen both Grease films, I suggested American Graffiti, and Hollywood Knights.

What else can I suggest?

He's really into classic cars so that would be a nice theme to have in a movie, he said a little raunchy is ok, not too much...

HELP!

Thank you!

How about Happy Days, it's a TV series though or maybe The Heavenly Kid

The Wanderers

Maybe Eddie and the Cruisers, but I can barely remember that movie.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

He wants me to buy him 2 or 3 movies every paycheck...

This will keep him busy for awhile...
