Mike McCoy, the lead singer for a traveling band who is also a part-time race car driver, enjoys his carefree single life, which is threatened by three different women who seek to marry him.

Enter Cynthia Foxhugh, a spoiled heiress and "daddy's girl", who is determined to get what she wants, no matter the cost. Such as was the case when Cynthia's millionaire father Howard tricks Mike and his band into interrupting their gig tour to serenade Cynthia with "Am I Ready" for her birthday. Cynthia becomes first of the three women who wants to marry Mike. Also, apparently knowing about Mike's racing skills, Howard is determined to hire Mike to drive Howard's Fox Five car in an upcoming road race, but Mike prefers to race his own car, a Cobra 427 sports car, which is towed around the country by a 1929 Model J Duesenberg.

Meanwhile, Mike is spied upon by Diana St. Clair, an author of books for women about men. Diana is in the process of writing her new book, "The Perfect American Male", and uses Mike as one of her subjects. Actually, she later reveals to Mike that he is the "perfect American male", thereby planning on Mike to marry her—to the point of already making wedding arrangements!

The female drummer of Mike's band, Les, is looked upon by Mike and the other band members as a tomboy, and becomes fed up with such treatment. Mike and his other band members are taken aback when at a party, Les picks her moment and reveals her true feminine side, walking back out from a room dressed up in an evening dress. She reveals herself as the third woman who wishes to marry Mike.

Faced with this predicament, Mike must decide which of the three women he will marry—after the race (which Mike wins in a car he doesn't even own). So he decides to marry all three of them—to other men. Mike marries Cynthia to Phillip, a nervous employee of Howard's who is prone to fainting (he had a secret crush on Cynthia since he's known her, which he finally picks up the nerve to tell her). Next, Mike marries Diana to Howard, who fell in love with each other after they met at one of Mike's parties. And finally, Mike marries Les to Lt. Tracy Richards, a police officer whom Les won her way to his heart through his stomach (he likes her cooking). This allows Mike to reclaim his single and carefree life, which he dearly enjoys.
