No, this isn't Cannonball Run, but the plot is the same. This flick came out 5 years earlier. Both films were based on novels written by the same guy. So that's the connection. God damn those must be shitty novels.
The cars in this flick are classic and they get smashed the fuck up! Providing the viewer with 90 minutes of brainless entertainment. Which is perfect after a long weekend of drinking n' smoking. Yes, by now you know I live a hedonistic lifestyle. Is there any other way?
Carradine drives a 1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. I guess 1970 was a kick ass year for badass cars. I actually caught this on cable over the weekend. So, now I need to add this cheese DVD to my collection. I'm not even posting the trailer cause this car crash/pile-up sequence is soooo friggin ridiculous I couldn't resist. Enjoy.
