The sparse plot concerns two unnamed street racers in a Chevy 150, played by Taylor and Wilson, who get challenged to a cross-country race to Washington DC by a mysterious and blustery stranger in a Pontiac GTO. Along the way, the street racers pick up a young female hitch-hiker played by Bird, who enters into brief romances with all three men.

* EnforcedMethodActing: The scene of the Girl begging was not filmed with actors. Bird simply asked passers-by for money while being recorded from a distance.

* MultipleChoicePast: An early example: the stranger in the GTO gives a number of conflicting backstories for himself. It's clear that they're all lies, because at the end he claims to have won his GTO by driving a Chevy 150, the car the other pair were driving.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Before the race, both cars' pink slips are mailed to DC. Since the film ends before either party gets to DC and everyone seems to have lost interest in the race, we never find out what happened to the pink slips. Did they all just decide to leave them in DC?
