would love to see this movie again
4 March 2014 | by railbusSee all my reviews

I actually remember this movie very well. It was a childhood favourite. We had recorded it from evening TV and Buddy Walker (Jeff Conaway RIP) had a very cool dark green 1969 Lincoln Continental with suicide doors. He was running a "spaghetti in a bag" franchise with his manager Ross Common. There was also a funny scene involving a gas station 'gas and dash' and the codgy/hard of hearing owner asks the disgruntled mechanic who that was that just stormed off. "The Buddy Walker gang" - to which the boss replied "Hungapang?! Earl, I have had it with you. You're fired!" The intro song to this movie was EXCELLENT and I have been trying for years to find a copy of it, to no avail. It was a fun action B movie that had some famous actors in it but seems very few people (except the two commenters above) seem to remember it. I have never seen a commercial copy available on VHS or DVD or even anything on youtube. I could probably convert the thing to DVD if someone had of recorded it back in the day and still has the tape. Anyone know how I could view this movie or at least get audio of the intro theme song? Please get in touch with me or consider posting on Youtube.
