Local goon, Gerry, hires a yellow mini in Kaitaia using a stolen license. John's wife has just left him and moved to Invercargill. He is devastated and needs to talk to her. He has no transport and needs a ride. Together with the little mini that Gerry names "Pork Pie", they hit the road to travel the length of the country. Their high speed exploits earn them the name "the Blondini gang". The police, however take a dim view of this and make it their mission in life to stop the Blondini boys from reaching their destination. Written by

Did You Know?
The beginning title card mentions driving your car whenever you pleased. This is a reference to 'car less days' that were introduced by the Muldoon government in 1979. With car less days, unless you had a exemption, you were not supposed to drive your car on the day of the week displayed on your windscreen or you could face a hefty fine. Ironically, they were phased out before Goodbye Pork Pie even reached the cinemas. See more
The police car in the Wellington railway yards has a "carless day" sticker and a "carless day exemption" sticker on its windscreen. The carless day scheme was not introduced until July 1979. See more

It's empty! We'll stick the car in here. There's a ramp about half a mile ahead. Get up there and load up.
But I'll kill myself.
You can do it!
Come on Gerry!
I'll kill you too, you silly bitch!
