Storyline

Old Indy meets a man driving a monster truck with the biggest set of wheels he ever saw at the gas station. He is reminded of his own teenage dream of driving the hottest car to his junior prom in 1916: a Bugatti owned by his then girlfriends father, Edward Stratemeyer. While trying to get the engine repaired, Indy and Nancy helped solve a robbery case from Thomas Edison's laboratory. It seemed German spies were after Edison's new electric motor.

Selections of Laurence Rosenthal's score for this episode can be heard on the Varese Sarabande CD "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles Volume Three" (1993), produced by Robert Townson. See more »

Goofs

Indy and Nancy repeatedly ride their bicycles from Princeton to West Orange. The distance is too great for this to be feasible. My own commute between these two cities was 45 miles each way, and included the use of highways which didn't exist in 1916. See more »
