Watch This First: Corvette Summer trailer, 1978

by Jason Toon

Our 70's Car Movie Trailer Week concludes with the story of a regular kid from the middle of nowhere who dreamed of zooming across the galaxy in a powerful craft: yes, it's Mark Hamill in Corvette Summer, reputedly shot before Star Wars but unreleased until after he hit the big time. It seems Lu- uh, Mark spent a year cherrying out the ultimate 'vette only to have it stolen the next day. A pre-Designing Women Annie Potts plays a sort of slutty, Earthbound Princess Leia.
 


70's Car Movie Trailer Week has been fun, but there are so many more "great" 70s car movie trailers than one week could possibly hold. Share your unsung favorites in the discussion thread.

Watch Watch This First first, every weekday morning. Because the best way to start the day is to start it a few minutes later.
