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 »
When Casey punches Chuck, he punches his right eye. Chuck spins around, and when he stands up and is holding his left eye. The next day, his left eye is the one that's black. See more »
Just to say that the '32 Ford Channeled roadster driven by Casey is powered by a genuine Chevy 409 With original tri-power which makes it very quick. Seems to have very low gears. Maybe 5.13s Oh well. You can still buy this VHS movie on the Internet. This little hot rod completely overshadows the Chrysler Turbine car. Look for Mickey Thompson and Wink Martindale Of course Pamela Tiffin too. The scene by the swimming pool is kinda funny Too much kissing Too bad about Doug McClure and Marilyn Maxwell
That Buick powered T Bucket looks like a Tommy Ivo car, but sure does blow a rod. Some of the drag strip scenes are very nostalgic Peter Beamer.
