When Ken and Vanessa flee from Vegas toward the end of the film, Vanessa is wearing a red and black wetsuit. But during some shots during the chase scene, she appears to be wearing a different outfit. This is noticeable when they're in the quarry. When Ken first stops, she's wearing the second top (which looks kind of like a Starfleet uniform top from Star Trek), but then when she pokes her head up out of the car a few seconds, she's got the wetsuit on again.

Luke skywalker trades in his landspeeder for a Corvette!
I never saw this movie when it first came out. The adults in my life did start taking me to movies back in 1978, but I guess they didn't care to pay to see this one. I would see it YEARS later on Cable TV around age 14.
This is a decent movie. Definatly the definition of a "sleeper". It's a solid 1970's Sleeper Classic/Classic Sleeper. A guy and his souped up car traveling around. A-la Sonny Crokett (of Miami Vice fame) and his earlier mid 1970's movie with Nick Nolte with them and their souped up car traveling around.
Mark Hamill gives a decent performance, as do the rest of the cast. Nothing Oscar-nominating, but watchable. Just a nice, light, watchable, movie about a guy, his car, and his (mis)adventures. Nice California locations too! Nice little movie.
