Hot Rod Girl is a 1956 action film directed by Leslie H. Martinson and released by American International Pictures as a double feature with Girls in Prison. It stars Lori Nelson and Chuck Connors.
Youth on the loose, in 1950s suburbia, terrorize locals, in their supped-up hot roads.
Start your engines! It’s a race to the finish, to see whether a city backed racetrack will settle things down, or push the pedal to the metal.
Flattop (Frank Gorshin) and the other Hot rodders, who hang out at Yo-Yo’s (Fred Essler) burger joint, only went to the police sponsored Dragstrip, because of Jeff urging them; but, now he doesn’t want anything to do with it.
It’s only a matter of time, before police Detective Ben Merrill (Chuck Connors) has another accident, to clean up, when Bronc Talbot (Mark Andrews) rolls into town, and goads them into playing chicken.
