Default American Graffiti vs Happy Days

I have a question American Graffiti vs Happy Days who wins and does anybody think that with character of Fonzie gaining popularity that it influences the motion picture of Grease I heard that Henry Winkler actually got to play the leading role but he turned it down due to the fact that he couldn't sing it would have been interested to see him and Olivia Newton John.

"AMERICAN GRAFFITI" IS THE FATHER OF "HAPPY DAYS".

"LOVE AMERICAN STYLE" IS THE MOTHER OF "HAPPY DAYS".

"LOVE AND THE HAPPY DAYS" ( a.k.a. "Love And The Television Set" was
the original title of Gary Marshall's single episode teleplay for Love American Style. )
IT WAS THE INITIALLY "UNFERTILIZED EGG" OF THE MOTHER UNTIL
THE FATHER CAME ALONG, FELL IN LOVE, AND DONATED HIS "SPERM".

( Did anyone notice the "phallic symbolism" of the cars driven by
Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Paul Le Mat and Charlie Martin Smith
in "American Graffiti"? )

"AMERICAN GRAFFITI" WAS NOMINATED FOR BEST PICTURE DURING THE 1973-1974 ACADEMY AWARDS
BUT DISAPPOINTINGLY LOST TO "THE STING".

IF RON HOWARD DID NOT GO TO FILM "AMERICAN GRAFFITI" WITH DIRECTOR GEORGE LUCAS IN 1973
RIGHT AFTER STARRING IN THE SINGLE EPISODE "LOVE AND THE HAPPY DAYS" FOR THE SERIES
"LOVE AMERICAN STYLE" IN 1972 , THERE WOULD BE NO "HAPPY DAYS" IN 1974.

Personally, I don't see it... "Maybe" the car Ron Howard and Charles Martin Smith drove, as it's the same car driven by both characters (remember Steve was going to entrust his car to Terry/AKA "Toad" while he was away at college)... With it's longer body style, etc. if one was of that mindset to interpret it that way, "maybe" it could be seen that way, but John Milner's coupe, no way-It's too compact and "stocky" compared to Steve's car...

I don't remember Curt (Richard Dreyfuss) even driving a car in the film... I remember him in the VW with his ex-girlfriend, and he was taken for a ride by The Pharoahs, but I don't recall him driving anything?
