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.

In 1958, highway striping was white. In the film, the center lines are shown yellow. These are the post MUTCD 1971 markings, which had been fully implemented by 1975/6 and were very hard to find before 1973. The film,being set in 1958 should have had full white striping on the roads. See more »
I'm flipping channels this afternoon and my wife goes, "OMG, is that Nick Nolte? And that looks like Don Johnson." We watched it for a while. It was pretty good. The plot synopsis on this site is spot on. I liken it to a racier version of the Dukes of Hazard (one is even named BO) before the Dukes were TV staples. As a Georgia native I made the comment to my wife, Man that looks like home! I was thrilled when I saw the title and I can verify those are some 2-lane Macon roads for sure. It was an indie film and it has that kind of indie feel to it. Worth 2 hours of your time on a lazy Sunday afternoon if you've already cleaned the house and done your yard work.
