Storyline

Mac's old friend Tony, who infiltrated the mafia, was to hand him unspecified evidence in sleepy Mesa, but gets killed by two mobsters before they can talk. Tony tossed the satchel in the '59 Cadillac of has-been Hollywood star Guy Roberts, who told his wife June they were returning to Hollywood for a new movie. When his rental car proves impossible to repair even with Macgyverisms, Mac takes a ride from the couple, and puts his skills to defensive use of various parts of the old car to fight off three mobsters who are after the bag, full of counterfeit money Guy used some from to pay the motel when his credit cards were refused, but after a valiant duel on wheels they have to make a stand in a ghost town...

Goofs

When the Cadillac broke down, it rolled up to a mound of dirt as high as the bumper. Yet, when MacGyver pushed it to the town, the car moved forward with no resistance. The car rolls up to some low shrubs, not a dirt mount. It is conceivable MacGyver was able to push the car without resistance. See more »
