    name the movie.............

    ok guys iv pretty much got all the copies of the hot rod/drag type movies,
    american grafitti, hot rod, two lane, vanishing point etc etc,

    now a long time ago as a youngster i watched a film and cant for the life of me track it down or even remember its name or who was in it!

    so, i think it was british, but could of been australian, the basic story was a mechanic, who built a red pick up truck to go racing, mainly to beat the ritch guy who had a corvette, but it was a proper racer of the time (late 70s) could of been a super gas car?
    as i remember there was some great strip shots and some cool cars, think there was also a bit of a love story thrown in to as the geeky girl mechanic became most appealing when her hair was down and specs were off!
    it was cheap budget and naff but i enjoyed it,
    any ideas??
    i want cubic inches! lots of em!!

    chris, i must congratulate you on your movie knowledge, however, what you know about the bay city rollers is disturbing ! i think you should take your rollers scarf and high waist trousers and go sit on the naughty step for a bit...
