Leigh becomes the love interest of both Arnie Cunningham and Dennis Guilder.
It is a surprise to everyone when she decides to go out with Arnie. Arnie fixes up Christine over time, and the car becomes his obsession. He starts driving it everywhere and even gets Leigh Cabot to be his girlfriend, much to the dismay of Dennis.
Arnie becomes humorless and arrogant, but also assertive and cruel. Christine is destroyed by Buddy Repperton and his gang who want revenge for Buddy being expelled because Arnie told a teacher that Buddy threatened him with a switchblade.
