The early “Pharoahs” club was comprised mostly of WWII and Korea War veterans. Inspired by the hot rod cruising and rock'n'roll culture emerging after WWII, the movie “American Graffiti” was set in Modesto, and the movie's fictional car club “Pharaohs” was based upon "The FAROS" Car Club.

Because of copyright matters, the movie used the traditional spelling to avoid paying royalties to any clubs. The President of the Pharoahs Car Club is Wyatt Bowman, and the General of the Pharoahs Car Club Arizona is Mike Goodwin.
