    Agree on the wheels, but it seemed like they were going for the nostalgia market with stock everything. The GSL-SE was fuel injected so no carburetor. That interior wasn't stock though, there were no two-tone offerings from the factory.

    Rewatching this episode tonight. Was a little sleepy the first time I watched it. You are right, it was the shaft in the throttle body, No carburetor here.

    Back in the day it was mostly girls driving this car. I use to chase them around in my 280Z.

    Jensen Healey tonight

    I like the Jenson Healey episode, At the time the Jenson Healey roadster was popular I didn't like it very much I remember thinking it was rather cobbled together, the single hinged bonnet was a problem. In California the smog laws robbed horsepower from the engine and the car sold for more than a MGB or a TR 4. The costly suspension bushings and the damage and repainting ate up the profit margin.

    Motortrend’s “Hot Rod Garage” is similar, but a bit more advanced with less on exterior aesthetics. Latest one took a mid 80s Tbird turbo, updated the SOHC, turbo, made 271 BHP.

    I guess the Jenson-Healey was the last episode of this season. I will continue to watch, but hope they find more interesting cars to restore, old an newer classics to work on.
