    It's been posted here before I just can't remember the title.:mad: It's a black and white movie about street racing. The main car is a '55 Chevy that races an earlier Chevy '54 maybe? gasser type car with a front end that bounces, and the guy who owns it and sets up the street races has a custom Buick and maybe owns a custom car building shop.

    Brian Donlevy must have been down on his luck at the end of his career to make this, but that really doesn't matter because it looks interesting.

    I wouldn’t say he was down on his luck he had a long active career, he may have been interested in the subject matter and maybe he wanted something to do besides lay around.
    Take a look at his career credits he did a little bit of everything.
