Starring H. B. Halicki, Marion Busia, Jerry Daugirda
Cars were harmed in the making of this movie. Indeed, no less than 127 vehicles were destroyed or damaged in the course of production—ninety-three of them alone in the electrifying, forty-minute car chase sequence that is the film’s raison d’être. Produced, written, directed by, and starring daredevil stunt driver H. B. Halicki, this pedal-to-the-metal pileup of vehicular carnage centers on Maindrian Pace (Halicki), an insurance investigator who moonlights as a professional car thief. When he’s hired by a South American drug lord to steal forty-eight cars in five days, Pace is in for one seriously wild ride.
