Hot Rod Grave Yard
26 September 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Sandy (Luke Halpin), Bud (Tommy Norden), and Flipper find a sunken red car, while playing underwater. Bud notices bullet holes in the car's windshield. Naturally, the boys want to investigate, but Ricks (Brian Kelly) warns them to stay away from the vehicle. Sandy tries to convince his father to allow him to investigate by noting that he's getting "older now" and should be helping his father more - starting with an investigation of the sunken car. Ricks thinks neither of the boys is, "too big to put over my knee." Later, the kids are bored, and decide to dive for shells; conveniently, they decide to dive near the derelict car, and are exposed to unexpected danger…

After an explosive climax, Ricks declares, "Neither of you are too big to put over my knee! Now, who's first?" That doesn't happen, of course; Sandy, in particular, is too old to be spanked by his father. Their consequence is a lesson. Guest star Mart Hulswit (as Johnny) helps provide the lesson, after getting mixed up with punk Robert Reilly (as Dick).
