Recent high school graduate Kenny Dantley obsesses over a 1965 Corvette Stingray he and his classmates have customized and rebuilt as their final project; after it is stolen, police tell him little hope of ever recovering the vehicle. He spends his summer tracking down the Corvette, a trail that takes him to Las Vegas, along the way meeting Vanessa, prostitute-in-training. Mark Hamill is fresh from Star Wars (1977); first major role for Annie Potts.
