Counterculture critics darling that failed at the box-office but has since developed a cult following. The Driver (Taylor) and the Mechanic (Wilson) are car freaks in a '55 Chevy, driving the southwestern backroads looking for a race. They meet up with Oates who's at the wheel of a brand-new G.T.O. He proposes they cross-country to D.C. and the winner gets the loser's car. Along the way, everyone's enthusiasm wanes and they part, with Wilson and Taylor driving down a two-lane blacktop as the film literally melts into a bright light. Music includes The Doors, Kris Kristofferson, and Ray Charles.
