TRASH COMPACTOR

In CORVETTE SUMMER there's suspense right off the bat. Once Kenny sees the car of his dreams, can he save it from the junk yard trash compactor? Wait a minute... A trash compactor. 

Does that sound familiar? Well it wasn't a new concept for MARK HAMIL who, in STAR WARS, nearly became a human scrape heap.

THE VISION

Kenny Dantley (Mark Hamill) gets a vision that will change his life. While on a field trip to an auto junkyard, things were looking down for the bored teen until something drops from the sky. Newton's Apple's got nothing on a CORVETTE... 

This discovery alters Kenny's existence just like that hologram did for Hamill's Luke Skywalker in STAR WARS.

JUNKYARD BLUES

There's nothing better for an auto shop class than a visit to the local junkyard, right? The skeletons of vehicles being carried around by giant metallic arms and junk spread throughout the auto graveyard: the possibilities are endless for a car enthusiast... Especially one like Kenny Dantley (Mark Hamill), who, unlike his friends, has the knowledge and capability to build a car from scratch... Or droids!
"I have to get a Power Converter for my Corvette!"
Helplessly...
Searching for hope...
And moments before the frame of the Corvette enters his vision, thus changing everything, Dantley has an expression of a lost, vacant soul: a young man who hasn't found his way. Much like Luke Skywalker staring off at the double-suns of Tatooine, his niche has yet to be carved.
Please no smoking in...
The mobile junkyard...

DISCO CHROME

The 1970's. You can't recreate that magic. The opening credits for CORVETTE SUMMER has a font for the title that can be best described as DISCO CHROME.

OPENING IMAGES

The first shot of CORVETTE SUMMER has a car being hauled back slowly in a junk yard. Then a forklift pummels into the car and we see name of the movie....  

STAR WARS opens up with two spaceships cruising through space, and they too merge together. 

Call this similarity a reach, fine. But that's okay. It's all part of the Corvette Jedi Order. Welcome aboard... 

DRIVER: MARK HAMILL

Figured this poster was worth sharing... And I was right!

DATSUN SUMMER

THE WRONG CAR ON DISPLAY
When poor Kenny chases the red, or rather, orange herring into a casino where he's sure to find his cherished Corvette, it turns out to be a DATSUN 240-Z (do I have the right model, motorheads?)... 

Now can you imagine a movie called DATSUN SUMMER standing the test of time?

SCREWDRIVER

How to make a Vanessa Screwdriver. First, buy some orange juice in a plastic carton. Then buy a bottle of vodka. Any brand of vodka will do... Then, drink some of the vodka; then some orange juice. Also, you need to have a van, or use of a van, with a bed inside. And last but certainly not least, for best results you need Vanessa. At which point you'll have the ultimate Screwdriver experience.

WARNER ARCHIVE DVD RESURRECTS CORVETTE SUMMER

BUY DVD AT AMAZON
WARNER ARCHIVE has brought CORVETTE SUMMER back on DVD!!!

Remember, Vetteheads, when the DVDs were out of stock and cost up to $100 dollars? That was way too pricey. Not even a lucky gambler would loan us that kind of money at a hotdog stand.
