Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Howco Productions, purveyors of many a drive-in "classic" of the 1950s, was responsible for Teenage Thunder. Charles Courtney (usually billed as "Chuck" in his supporting-player appearances) stars as a young gas station attendant with a fondness for hot rods. Despite objections from his father, Courtney manages to enter several big races. When he wins the biggest race, dad finally comes around to his way of thinking. Not unexpectedly, the film's best scenes take place on the racetrack.
