John Clanton, Ben Heath et al: Interstate Transportation of Stolen Motor Vehicles-Murder.
Original air date: 4 February 1968
Repeated 21 July 1968
The unexplained death of a race car driver (sniper shot) places Inspector Lewis Erskine and S.A.C. Tom Colby on the trail of a stolen car ring. This leads them to the racing circuit around Los Angeles, where Mr. Colby poses as a car racer, and the inspector as a racing owner.
Sports car racing was popular in 1968 the same way NASCAR is in 2005. By this time, The FBI was just beginning to really hit its stride as a TV series.
- Tom Bosley would achieve stardom as Mr. Cunningham on Happy Days (1974-83). He looks very young indeed, which he was (40 years old).
