Gidget's Wheels
7 July 2017 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Gidget (Sally Field) and her friend Jack Collins (James Davidson) are arguing over whether she is still independent if she doesn't have her own car and isn't old enough for a driver's license. She spots and falls in love with an olive green hearse with pink stripes sitting on the beach. The owner, King Mannix (Richard Sinatra) is leaving in July, when Gidget will be 16, for Hawaii and agrees to sell it to her for $310. Gidget's father (Don Porter) is flabbergasted and questions how she'll raise the money. She explains the vehicle has 99,000 miles showing, but any problem that pops up she'll learn to fix it. She enrolls in her school's auto shop. At the beach she learns that King left for Acapulco and sold the hearse. Jack tells her that King was looking for a quick buyer so he and some of the other guys pooled their money and bought the hearse, and she can ride in it anytime. Angry, Gidget is more determined than ever to succeed in auto shop and prove herself to the boys.
