At the Five Points intersection in Modesto, CA (McHenry, Downey, Needham, 17th and "J"), the town paid tribute to their favorite son by dedicating a statue to American Graffiti and naming the intersection George Lucas Plaza.

Although it was shot in Petaluma, Lucas was raised in Modesto and based much of the California cruising culture in American Graffiti on his experiences there. When Lucas was a lad, this intersection marked the end of downtown and the beginning of the farmland that surrounded the city.
