In 1958, two teenagers take their pride and joy, a hopped-up Chevy, and start a cross-country journey to enter it in the National Championship drag races in California. Along the way they hook up with a pretty but dingy waitress who quits her job and hops in their car--and turns out to be more trouble than they thought--drag-race a gang of town punks who lose to to them and then accuse them of cheating, and come up against a local cop who is obsessed with putting these two "juvenile delinquents" in jail.

When Harley spots the white 57 Chevy Convertible in the field, and suggests the windows could be used to replace the yellow hardtops windows, this will not work. the door glass is the same, but the right rear quarter window was shot out on the yellow hardtop, which has a distinct different shape than the convertible, and won't fit. Also of interesting note, when they're escaping the drive in, an early Chevy coupe is cut off by Bo and Harley, which crashes into a parked white 57 Chevy convertible - the same one later seen in the field.

When Bo and Harley are in the small grocery store talking in an aisle, the packaging of all the items on the shelves is from the 1970s, not from when the story supposedly takes place in 1958. See more »
This was one I watched fifty times on late-70's cable. This movie never lets up for a second as it's filled with great action, pretty girls, great 50's music and bad dialogue. Not to mention a young Nick Nolte and Don Johnson! How can you go wrong? The car is incredible too, I used to think the "extra juice" they'd give it during drag races was the wildest thing. The crazy cop is hilarious. I used to look for "sail rabbits" after seeing this one haha. Not to be missed, especially by car fans of fans of films set in the 50's.
