Synopsis

Somewhere in the middle of nowhere, a two-bit hustler is gunned down. His car--a cherry red '63 convertible--races off into the blazing midday sun with an unseen killer behind its wheel. Funny how sometimes a car changes hands in a minute. A few hundred miles across the desert, two used car salesmen, Bob and Sid, would kill to move a car that quickly. Unfortunately, these not so loveable losers can't seem to get rid of anything on wheels and, from the looks of it, they have a better shot at selling their souls than a used car. And that's what is about to happen...
