Ken loves to design and build exotic cars. When the High School shop class project car, a fully tricked out dream Corvette, is stolen, he begins searching for it. His search leads him to Las Vegas, where Vanessa, a teenaged prostitute wannabe, helps him try to track it down. Written by

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 is a delightful piece if you see it with kid's eyes. There's a pretty innocence in the whole story.
This movie was made partly to exploit Hamill's success at that time. But if you know nothing about Mark you may simply enjoy it, after all it has fabulous muscle cars and a sympathetic premise and over all things it doesn't try to be more than it is. This is like a children's tale in the late 70's, don't misunderstand this as something derogative. The plot has many similarities with Jack the giant killer (lucky those guys that find valuable things in the streets!!) and it is good that old children's tale are reinvented from time to time. Mature people can have problems with this and think it absurd, but sometimes it is better believe we can find what can change our lives in a dumpster or walking on the street than believe we will be unhappy adults for the rest of our lives.
It's positive the simplistic story that presents Summer of Corvette, there's no abundance of subplots, it's a linear plot. Also it's nice find a movie about a guy who's got no money and suddenly can have all what he wanted. If you don't like this, there are lots of Hollywood products with people with fancy cars, and some of them justify car robbery probably a realistic way for people of the lower classes to get classy cars. Sometimes it's good been a bit unrealistic.
