What year is that vette his dad won't let the customer return? Not an expert, but I think late 60's and it would be worth a big chunk of change today. Also saw a red Dodge Dart drop top that looked pretty nice.

One final car note on a bike movie, what was the pace car? It took up half the straightaway???

FYI, if you've never seen the TV series, all seven episodes are on you tube. Shawn Cassidy is the main character.

My mom told me that movie was about me. Except I already have an Eyetee last name.

Anybody else?

Looks like it. Also looks like a 3ttt seatpost, incorrect brake levers/calipers (post-CPSC/Gran Sport) and SL pedals. Oops

Damn, I'm picky.

I believe there are more than seven episodes out there somewhere. At some point after the series was cancelled, there was a baseball strike. The network had a bunch of holes in their schedule. They filled some of those holes with the remaining episodes.

Watched it. It's just one of those movies that if it's on, I have to watch it. I don't even have to intently watch it. Just to hear it in the background while I tinker with the bike is enough.
