HOT ROD GANG (aka: Fury Unleashed)

"Proud young rebels! ... Crazy Kids, Living to a Wild Rock and Roll Beat!"
-- Synopsis:
     Teen John Abernathy III (John Ashley) is forced to live a highly restricted lifestyle by his two spinster aunts who will only bequeath him their fortune if he behaves like a proper gentleman. However he may have a little trouble doing it. He wants to enter his Hot Rod in the Drag races but is wanted by the Law for stealing hubcaps and driving too fast. He joins a Rock Band to make enough money to enter the race and with Gene Vincent at his side he might be able to do it.

* Features
    Fair amount of music mainly by John Ashley, but some by Gene Vincent. There is a lengthy Swing scene during this film. Kay Wheeler does her sexy " Rock n Bop" dancin'. Ok movie if you're a Gene Vincent or a Swing dance fan.
