Casey Owens (James Darren), a young mechanic, has developed a design for a turbine car engine, paving the way for a jet-powered auto certain to set a new land speed record. Wealthy playboy Stanford Rogers (Peter Mann) hires Casey to build the car for him to race in the Tri-State Endurance Run. Chuck Manning (Doug McClure), an engineering student Casey met in a drag race, discovers potential flaws in the car's design. After an unsuccessful test run, Rogers abandons the turbine-powered car for a traditional racing model, but Casey and Chuck rework the turbine vehicle to compete with Rogers in the endurance run. Pamela Tiffin plays Eadie, Chuck's sister who becomes Casey's love interest. Written by

When Chuck (Doug McClure) allows for a one second throttle lag, when he calculates the quarter mile time for the jet car, this may be true, but a drag racer would compensate for this by trying to launch early to allow for the lag time. See more »

Just to add a bit to my initial review. If it was in fact a 348 block then I had many opportunities to drive my friend's '61 chevy (with a genuine 348 with factory tri-power and 4.11s) in moving it from one parking lot to another at UCLA. Of course I always got my foot in it and it really hauled ass. I saw another car like that the other day (a '62 with a 409), kinda like to have that '62.
