    Synopsis


    Corvette Summer
    The Corvette Ken Dantley's (Mark Hamill) class has been restoring in their high-school shop class is nearly completely fixed up. One day, the students walk in and it is gone - apparently stolen. Ken is larking about in Las Vegas when he spies a car that looks suspiciously like the Corvette he knows so well. He begins looking for the car, but in the meantime Vanessa (Annie Potts), propositions him on the street. Intrigued, he follows the girl back to her van, which is equipped with a waterbed. She hopes to use the van as a travelling brothel, with herself as the bill of fare. Instead, she helps him look for the missing car, and as they search, the two of them fall in love. Though praised by critics, Mark Hamill's second starring feature did poorly at the box-office, and stalled his career. Corvette Summer marks the first star appearance by Annie Potts, perhaps better known for her role in the U.S. television show Designing Women. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

      the add read he's back from star wars with a girl you'll never forget. that girl was annie potts, who went on to big tv fame. after star wars mark hamill tries to appeal to the teenage market with this boy looking for a stolen car formula. mark hamill was cute as high school student in vegas tracking a stolen corvette he rebuild in car class in school. potts is a hooker only very willing to help hamill out in this time of need. yes he gets the crooks, and the girl but it's all fun. i first saw this film in 1978 at the edgemoor theatre.

      The movie is a teenagers dream from the 1980's. The movie is a great story about high school student builds a one of a kind corvette. Then the car is stolen and a search for the car. Oh a love story with a irritating female. This movie could be updated but do people have the same passion today?

      Old school classic. Good movie if you like cars and action with a 70s vibe.
