If you thought director Lamar Card set a personal worst record with "Disco Fever," you haven't seen "Supervan." This is a movie that makes the buffoonery of the 1970's crystal clear with everything from a solar-powered supervan, to horrible hairstyles and clothes, a drunken Charles Bukowski, and some of the absolute worst music ever put on a soundtrack. Filmed in Kansas City, the plot shows us a young man, Clint Morgan (Mark Schneider,) who has left his lucrative job at a filling station to pursue his dreams of superstardom by winning the $5,000 grand prize at a custom van competition called simply "Freakout." This is supposedly a huge event as we see a minor convoy of hideous custom vans and hear a lot of beyond-idiotic CB lingo indicating the hugeness of scope involved. In reality there's maybe twenty vans or so there, and some of the signs for the event are hand-lettered on poster board.

After the execrable opening theme song ("I'd rather be ridin' high in my Supervan!") Clint runs afoul of some very lame bikers over the affections of Karen Trenton (Katie Saylor,) while for some reason his van and one of the biker's bikes are crushed in a rogue car crushing machine. (I'm not clear on how exactly that happened, but now that I think about it, I don't care.) There's lots of jaw-droppingly bad dialogue ("They say a pirate's spirit never dies...") and extraordinarily bad acting. Luckily Clint knows an MIT-educated genius, Boseley (Tom Kindle,) who designs him a solar-powered supervan named "Vandora," actually designed by the king of car customizers George Barris. Barris, who made the original Batmobile and worked on shows such as "The Munsters," "My Mother the Car," and "Knight Rider," also appears as himself here as the chief judge of Freakout.
