This lively outing chronicles the adventures of a daring young buck who defies his father, who grounded the lad for getting bad grades, and swipes his neighbor's car so he can take his girl to the dance. Afterward, he and his buddies begin playing "chicken" and the lad destroys his neighbor's rig. He then takes it to a body shop, unknowing that it is really run by crooks who use the cars for robberies. The innocent youth and his gal end up working as getaway drivers while the crooks rob his father's company. The crooks shoot his father during the heist and then threaten to kill him unless he drives. They force him to go the speed limit so as not to attract undue attention. The ever-defiant youth does just the opposite and peels off towards the police department where all ends happily.
