Tommy Callahan Jr. is a slow-witted, clumsy guy who recently graduated college after attending for seven years. His father, Big Tom Callahan, owns an auto parts factory in Ohio. When Tommy arrives back home, he finds he has a position at the factory waiting for him. His dad also introduces Tommy to the new brake pad division of the factory and to Tommy's soon-to-be stepmother, Beverly, and her son Paul. But when Big Tom dies, the factory threatens to go under unless the new brake pads are to be sold. Therefore, Tommy must go on the road to sell them, along with the assistance of Richard, Big Tom's right-hand man. Will Tommy save the company, or will the factory, and the town, go under? Written by

Early in the movie Richard claims to have dropped a 440 6-Pack Magnum engine into his Plymouth GTX. In all later scenes with the hood up or missing, it shows that the car is actually equipped with a standard 440 4 Barrel, as indicated by the "440 Magnum Four Barrel" Air Cleaner. The Magnum and the 6-Pack are two different packages for the 440, impossible to confuse with one another. 440 4 Barrel engines are equipped with a single four barrel carburetor and round air cleaner, where 6-Pack engines are equipped with three two barrel carburetors and a massive oblong air cleaner that covers the entire length of the intake.
