On Jan and Dean's rise to the top of the music industry, a horrible car accident leaves Jan Berry incapacitated and their dreams shattered. With the help of Dean and others, Jan slowly recovers, learning again to walk and talk. A comeback to the music industry seems impossible, but Jan's willingness to try and with Dean the duo aim for another chance.
Based on a 'Rolling Stone' magazine feature article by Paul Morantz.

At 33:00, there is a what appears to be a 1967 Corvette with a 1967 427 hood in the driveway. As Jan's accident was April 12, 1966, it would have been impossible for him to have a 1967 Corvette. The same Corvette is seen in the small Texas town and shows a passenger dash that is pre-1967 and a gas lid that is a 1965. Also, the hood doesn't have the factory stripe on the center bulge and scoop. This car appears to be made of parts that would not have been around in 1966 with the front end and hood. See more
