This film collects just what it was like to be in Australia in the early 80's. It's about hot cars, hot chicks and hot times. The story begins when two local street racers agree to race Fox, the faster street drag racer there is. After two of the three race rounds, the race is no longer a game, but more of a survival!

In the opening scene Fox is racing a yellow 1969 HT Holden Monaro. When the HT crashes over the VW it changes into a 1968 HK Holden Monaro. Note tail lights. See more »

It helps if you were of age here at the time it was made
Its only been recently released on DVD here in Australia.Prior to this only available on VHS video. A very good friend of mine personally knows the guy who owns the red Ford Falcon GTHO used in the movie....not the the car they mocked up which crashed,caught fire and then had its roof ripped off. It helps if you were of age or close to it when the film was made so you can relate to the whole car culture thing here back then. Seems a bit corny now but always enjoyable to watch. Note...worth going into slow mode close the end after "Fox" loses to the 1957 blown black Chev and and its interesting how this scene was staged and which car didn't blow up when it didn't hit the wall but a substitute car parked away from the wall and blown up..... God i love DVD.
