Storyline

Two small-town young men, drag racer Bo and mechanic Harley, embark on a road trip from Georgia to California with the intention of entering the Grand National Championship drag races in California. But it's not long before the innocent-minded friends realize this journey will bring them more than they bargained for. Trouble greets them in the form of a runaway waitress who insists on traveling with them, a group of high school boys who don't like losing a street race, and a police sergeant who is determined to throw them in jail.

Trivia

Although Max Baer Jr., who produced and co-wrote Macon County Line (1974), was not involved with this follow-up, he retained profit participation. See more »

Goofs

When Bo and Harley are in the small grocery store talking in an aisle, the packaging of all the items on the shelves is from the 1970s, not from when the story supposedly takes place in 1958. For instance, the Hamburger Helper Bo is leaning against wasn't introduced until 1971. See more »

Lost bit of Americana here....
20 September 2003 | by anonreviewerSee all my reviews
