The mold for this film's centerpiece 1973 Corvette car is part of the collection of America's National Corvette Museum and displayed at the Corvette Americana Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. The museum also screens this movie regularly. See more »
When Ken and Vanessa flee from Vegas toward the end of the film, Vanessa is wearing a red and black wetsuit. But during some shots during the chase scene, she appears to be wearing a different outfit. This is noticeable when they're in the quarry. When Ken first stops, she's wearing the second top (which looks kind of like a Starfleet uniform top from Star Trek), but then when she pokes her head up out of the car a few seconds, she's got the wetsuit on again.

"Corvette Summer" might not be a perfect film, but it's a breezy, occasionally funny sleeper...the type of movie that used to pack them in at drive-ins all the time. Today, there's the added value of seeing Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamill and Annie "Designing Women" Potts in very early roles before they became big stars. There's even an appearance by Danny (Partridge) Bonaduce. Good summertime entertainment!
