Storyline

Tod and Buz fail to save their ship-builder boss from accidentally drowning, but stay on when his free-spirited daughter takes over the yard. Misnamed Prudence's as conflicted and headstrong as she's alluring - which stabs a fork between streetwise Buz, and preppy Tod whose background matches Prudence and upper-crust Gloucester, Massachusetts maddeningly.

Did you see the XP-755 Mako Shark GM concept car?
10 August 2011 | by (Newtown CT) – See all my reviews

This was a great episode. The ending was sort of predictable given that we know that Tod will not settle down with Tod.

Did anyone notice the rather exotic car that Prudance Adams drove? This episode aired in 1961. Buz & Tod drive a 1961 Corvette. Prudie drives what looks sort of like a 1968 Corvette which was still seven years in the future. It has a double bubble clear top and huge side pipes. After researching this a bit, it appears that this car was a GM concept car. GM supplied most of the vehicles used in this show. It appears they supplied an XP-755 Mako Shark I GM concept car. I guess they wanted Prudie to have a European looking sports car but of course, they needed to have only GM cars in the show.
