When multi-millionaire Maxwell Abbott dies, he arranges for 5 couples to participate in a winner-take-all automobile rally using his collection of classic cars. The prize: the vintage cars themselves, valued at nearly $2 million. McMillan was an old friend of Abbott's and he's pledged the collection to the police benevolent fund if he wins. It soon becomes apparent that someone is prepared to win at all costs. Forced to use Sally's old car after someone disables the classic Corvette they were supposed to use, the McMillan's set off but not before others have found their vehicles tampered with and someone phones in a bomb threat. The sabotage continues and McMillan wants to call the race off. He gets little support from the others who all have their own reasons for wanting to win the prize. When one of the participants is killed, McMillan finds himself dealing with a case of murder. The motive may not be as obvious as first appearances would suggest.
A dying millionaire asks Mac, through an intermediary, to compete in a road rally. Each participant will drive one of the millionaire's classic cars. The winner gets to keep the entire collection. But someone, acting through a hired thug plans to sabotage the cars one by one. The thug gets into Mac's garage and puts sugar in the gas line of the car he's been assigned. Mac's mechanic then suggests Mac use Sally's small MG, which hasn't been seen in a couple of seasons. The intermediary accepts the new entry and the race is on. But the thug is still at work sabotaging the other cars, culminating in an accident that launches a car into a pond. The driver escapes, but his wife drowns. When the hired thug is caught, he denies having anything to do with the murder. He won't finger his contact person, though, so Mac investigates the drowning on his own -- with the killer arriving and standing lakeside with a gun, taking a shot at Mac each time he comes up for air. Can Sally (who's pregnant and showing, but her mobility isn't hampered yet) save the day?
