The Driver and The Mechanic roam the country in a tricked-out 1955 Chevy, drag racing for money and thrills. While stopped at a diner, The Girl climbs into their car and plants herself in the backseat. Drifting across the Southwest, they keep being buzzed by a snazzy 1970 Pontiac. GTO chats up a storm, bending the ears of the hitchhikers he regularly picks up off the side of the road. Like modern day cowboys, they just keep moving--no roots, no responsibilities--the only real threat the loss or destruction of the vehicle itself. These three men, one woman, and two cars end up in a race to Washington D.C., yet they keep stopping to help each other, and winning seems far from their thoughts. The road is itself a place to live, is home, not just a way to move.
