I have a film on VHS, that is called " Heavy Metal, and it even mentions the words " The cars the star " on the cover, not watched it for donkey's years but I seem to recall it being about drag racing rather than rods.....? bizarre if it is the same film, I will look later:tup:

Thanks for the message, Spence.

Back on topic, just looked on t'internet and the film Riding High (1981) has a soundtrack that includes a song by Eddie Kidd called Heavy Metal. The plot thickens..... :S

Mark i seam to remember a pic in SM of Eddie Kidd doing a stunt/jump for this film.
Very true, there are several vid's on you tube with him setting up and a few of the actual just over a revine on the Isle of Sheppy.

It does look like a tipical 70's " B " movie, I must admit.....:shake:
