Double Feature!

U.S. film. Excellent quality. 4:3 aspect ratio. Burnout is a cool drag racing film! A rich-kid teenager loves drag racing but his successful businessman father doesn't understand and wants his son to join him in his business. While sipping a cocktail and overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the balcony of their Laguna Beach, CA home, the father says, "If you're going to drag race, do it to WIN!"

The son takes his dad to all the southern California drag strip raceways to teach him about the sport. There are many scenes where the son describes what's happening on the track. For viewers not familiar with drag racing this provides an excellent education.

When the father discovers that nitro can cause a dragster to explode he flips out and insists that his son must drive an alcohol-burning (non-exploding!) dragster.

Next they visit "Bishop-Buehl Racing Engines" and talk to the man about building a custom dragster. The dad whips out his checkbook and writes a check for $30K. Next we see awesome machine shop footage of all the phases of building a dragster. Cool acoustic guitar soundtrack in the style of Jorma Kakouen.

Eventually, after some failures on the track, the son wants to step out of the shadow of his father so he joins a racing crew as a gopher and is determined to rise in the sport on his own. Cameo appearances from big names of the 70s dragstrip scene include: Don Garlits, Marvin Graham, Gary Beck, Shirley Muldowny, Don Prudhomme, Raymond Beadle and Tony Nancy.

Plus this bonus selection...

U.S. TV game show. Feb-2-69. Teenagers compete against the over-30, older generation answering trivia questions about each other's generation. Live musical performances by The Ohio Express who perform, "Yummy Yummy Yummy." Questions pertain to the Beatles, Peter Max, Arlo Guthrie, fashion, politics, old radio & TV programs, slang, Little Orphan Annie, flower power and more. Groovy.
