Vanishing Point

Synopsis: Kowalski works for a car delivery service. He takes delivery of a 1970 Dodge Challenger to take from Colorado to San Francisco, California. Shortly after pickup, he takes a bet to get the car there in less than 15 hours. After a few run-ins with motorcycle cops and highway patrol they start a chase to bring him into custody. Along the way, Kowalski is guided by Supersoul - a blind DJ with a police radio scanner. Throw in lots of chase scenes, gay hitchhikers, a naked woman riding a motorbike, lots of Mopar and you've got a great cult hit from the early 70's.

Wonder what's goin' on.

Here comes CBS News. Must be important.

Unit 2473 to helicopter.

- Helicopter, over.

- Have you located suspect?

Suspect under surveillance.

Helicopter one to 2473.

Suspect stopped. He can't get away.

All right. All right, maintain surveillance.

(Train bell)

Kowalski!

And the keys for a sawed-off weekend.

Well, you're both welcome.

- What have you got goin' for Frisco?

- You're not goin' back tonight?

Hey, you're gonna kill yourself

someday, you know that?

- Do you know?

- Yeah, yeah.

Look, why don't you

stay over till Monday, huh?

- So you can go home right now?

- Oh, yeah. Sure, sure. Just before midnight.

Hey, look. Ya know somethin'? When the

clock strikes 12, my car turns into a pumpkin.

- Hey, Sandy. You know you're a born actor?

- Yeah. Sure, sure.

That's what my wife'll say, when I tell her

I've been waitin' up for you all night.

Hey. Look, look, seriously.

Look, why don't you stay over?

- Nah.

- You can do with some sleep, can't ya?

Look, I gotta get started out

tonight, Sandy. Now which car?

Which...?

# I can't believe it,

could it be I've gone astray?

# Oh, Lord, won't you help me

to find myself a place to pray?

Hey, K.

(Laughs)

What's happenin'?

What's happenin'? What d'you need?

- Speed.

- Why not? Hold that. How you doin'?

- Fine. How are you doin'?

- Lookin' good. Say when.

- Oh, oh, oh. That's good.

- Mm-hm.

- Hey, man, hold it. I'll get you some water.

- That's OK. Forget it.

- You sure?

- Yeah, I'm gonna split.

- Hang out for a while.

- Uh-uh. I gotta get moving.

"Gotta get movin',

gotta hit the road." Bullshit.

What about them two chicks

over there to slow you down, huh?

- Yeah, they're beautiful.

- So drop out and join the cause.

No offence, but I gotta

be in Frisco at three tomorrow.

- Ah, you're puttin' me on.

- Wish to God I was.

You're bullshittin' yourself.

You cannot make it.

- Wanna bet?

- This must be a souped-up somethin'?

- Yeah, it's hopped up to over 160.

- Whoo! But even so...

I'm gonna bet you the tab for the bennies.

I'm gonna be in Frisco,

and I'm gonna call you at three tomorrow.

Now, if I don't,

double the deal next time around.

- Bet?

- Bet.

Good luck, buddy!

(Dog barks)

(Farming report on radio)

This is consistent with similar studies

conducted elsewhere around the country.

On the other hand,

some other traits, such as fertility,

calf survival rate, bull inheritability,

heterosis or hybrid vigour may be

an important factor in these latter traits.

To cross even genetic unlikes

produces heterosis, for less crossbreeding.

So, just a few views of what's to come,

and what will be seen in crossbreeding,

from the day's farm report.

- Ten seconds, Super.

- (# "Super Soul Theme" by the JB Pickers)

You got it.

Ah! Good morning, folks!

This is yours truly, Super, Super Soul!

Direct and live with no net, early people.

Without a net!

Transmittin' from KOW, spelt K-O-W,

uh-huh, the noisiest, bounciest,

fanciest radio station in the Far West!

Now, let's cheer up the mornin' with some

wham, bam, zoom, boom, wake-up music,

with a little help from my friend!

Now take it away, amigo! Hey, hit it!

All right! Hubba, hubba!

(# "Got it Together" by Bobby Doyle)

Takin'me on home!

We got a long way to go today, baby!

# I just got a feelin'like my life was new

# And this is my first day

# She said she loved me, but she started

to show me in a personal kind of way

- # Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

- # Oh, oh, yes

- # Ooh-ooh-ooh

- # Oh, now

- # The girl has got it together

- # Got it, got it together
