IT TAKES A THIEF 316 The Steal-Driving Man (1/19/1970)
Wally gets one of the greatest drivers in the world, P.K. Rhodes, to train Al to go undercover as Paul Stratford, a Formula One race car driver, so he can get invited by Paolo Monteggo, the vice president of the Republic of Cordona, to Cordona's First Annual Grand Prix Race. The S.I.A. suspects Monteggo and the Soviets of building missile silos in Cordona, but Cordona's official government position is that they are building an extensive grain storage complex. The S.I.A. needs proof of their theory, so Al must find and steal Monteggo's final phase blueprint and show it to Cordona's pro-American president, in order to prevent Monteggo from seizing power as soon as that complex is finished.
