This movie is a live-action version
of Michiharu Kusunoki's long running Manga [which also inspired a hit
animated TV series]. It's all based on the Mid Night Club, an infamous
group of young people who raced their souped-up cars on The Wangan in
Tokyo during the '80s.
Most of the action
concentrates on the duel between Black Bird [a Porsche driven by Tatsuya
Shima) and Devil Z [Akio Asakura's Datsun twin-turbo 240Z]. Seemingly,
the Devil Z was formerly owned by Shima who scrapped it after being convinced
that it was cursed, destined to kill anybody who attempted to tame it.
Essentially, he knew nobody could ever control the Devil Z. But high-school
kid Akio Asakura has an uncontrollable attraction for the Z and rescues
it from a junkyard, totally ignoring Shima's dire warnings. The car is
restored to pristine condition and ready for action. Meanwhile, Shima,
in his black Porsche, is determined to destroy the possessed Devil Z once
and for all.
