A hilarious comic salute to those super salesmen whose persuasive pitches transform rattling wrecks into "pre-owned" dream cars. Jack Warden is brilliant in a double role as two feuding brothers Luke and Roy L. Fuchs, who own competing car lots and are trying to drive each other out of business. Rudy Russo (Kurt Russell) is Luke's ace salesman, a charming and conniving cheat and liar who is merely in training for his true ambition - politics. In one of Rudy's most outrageous advertising ploys, he hires a model (Penthouse Pet of the Year, Cheryl Rixon) to strip on television, and they all wind up in a crazy automobile stampede involving 200 vintage cars in a high-speed chase that becomes a free-for-all demolition derby.
