Reels and Wheels continues its odd relationship with favorite director Hal Needham, talking about what in retrospect was one of his most disturbing movies - Stroker Ace!
Sid and James are joined by JG Pasterjak, comedian and writer for Grassroots Motorsports to take a look at the movie that effectively ruined Burt Reynolds' career.
So how many Ford Foxbody vehicles can you squeeze into one movie? How great was early 1980's NASCAR? How patently disturbing was this movie?

Why did you do this to us, Hal Needham? We loved you for Smokey and the Bandit and the Cannonball Run. But Megaforce?!
Barry Bostwick leads a team of caricatures in strange "high tech" assault vehicles to help a fictional country win a war against a fictional country. Joining us is comedian and 1980's movie aficionado, Tim Loulies.
This movie was a shining piece of Tim's childhood for kind and innocent reasons. It has a timeless message - war is awesome and nobody dies. The loser just laughs and gives the winner a big ATTABOY!
And there's a Bronco. There's always a Bronco.
