A bachelor author of sleazy books moves to a family-oriented subdivision where he becomes an unofficial relationship advisor to unhappy local housewives, to the dismay of their respective husbands who suspect him of sexual misconduct.
Casey Owens (James Darren), a young mechanic, has developed a design for a turbine car engine, paving the way for a jet-powered auto certain to set a new land speed record. Wealthy playboy Stanford Rogers (Peter Mann) hires Casey to build the car for him to race in the Tri-State Endurance Run. Chuck Manning (Doug McClure), an engineering student Casey met in a drag race, discovers potential flaws in the car's design. After an unsuccessful test run, Rogers abandons the turbine-powered car for a traditional racing model, but Casey and Chuck rework the turbine vehicle to compete with Rogers in the endurance run. Pamela Tiffin plays Eadie, Chuck's sister, who becomes Casey's love interest.Written by

This is one of the best car movies ever made. I saw it when I was very young and have looked for it on some type of video or copy ever since I reached an adult. It's the only place I have ever seen the Chrysler Turbine car and the cross country race had several real drivers including the late Mickey Thompson. I have checked the paper for several years hoping it would air so I might make a copy but it never has and that is sad with all the great car movies out there that this one has never been released on video of some kind that I know of. I primarily signed on to this website hoping that someone might could help me locate a copy. If it ever airs on tv don't miss this one!
