Landis takes us to Memphis to watch a professional car 'slasher' brought in from California attempt to move some vehicles over a holiday weekend. The economic realities however eat away at any reputation or talent (self-deluded) he may have. OK but subject plays to the camera and really is a pretty unlikable guy.
