Finsters post got me thinking. We have a lot of combined years of movie watching here. I saw a movie in the late 60's,-early 70's, [b Movie] I think it was one of the filler movies at a drive in. I loved this movie and have no idea of it's title or actors. It was a drag racing movie about a winning local rebel who wouldn't bow to the local promoters at the track. I remember that the big sponsers/promoters was Munn root beer or something similar. The kid refused to put their sticker on his car.The promoters henchmen almost get caught stealing the kids car and blow his engine. Him, his girl and some crusty old mechanic steal a cop car for it's engine the night before the big race and use acid to etch off the serial #'s. He shows up in time and wins of coursetongue.gif

If anyone knows the name of the movie that would be great. I would love to see it again.

Thanks

Jim

Chucker I think that was it. Was the car a 39 Willys and at some point in the movie he took the blower motor and put it in for the "big Race"? I think they show it on tv every once in awhile.

Thanks guys. Yes, the car was a 36 willy's. I just did a google search. Thats the flick. I would have sworn it was an older movie. It was made the year I graduated high school and was tooling around in my 1969 dodge charger R/T. hippie.gif
