Summary, etc.:
David Langham is an enterprising youth with an eye for the girls and an ear for a well-tuned, high-compression machine. And his dad is a sagacious font of advice who happens to be a small town judge. The film, which combines the excitement of tire-singing speed with a cautionary message about the perils of street racing, would see a stream of redlining exploitation flicks in its rearview, Hot Rod Girl, Hot Rod Gang, and Hot Rods to Hell among them.
