This classic coming-of-age story set against the 1960’s backdrop of hot rods, drive-ins, and rock n’ roll, follows a group of teenagers as they cruise the streets on their last summer night before college. Featuring breakout performances by Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind), Harrison Ford (Star Wars, Indiana Jones), and Suzanne Somers (the Thighmaster commercials), the howling sounds of Wolfman Jack, and an unforgettable soundtrack with songs by Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, The Beach Boys and Bill Haley & His Comets.
