Yes that was Larry Shapiros 66 Corsa Convertible that was used for that episode. Tim Allen owned a Corvair earlier in life and wanted to do one. We had to prep the car and then they picked it up for the show. Larry and I and a few other people were at the showing as a guest for Tim. We drove the car back home after the taping.
Tim did own a Yenko Stinger that he raced and it was sold to a Collector here in Pittsburgh and I worked on it but it had a tired engine. Warren Demorshak who was the builder of the engines at Don Yenkos shop rebuilt the motor.

A late model (convertible,?) was "featured" in one, or more, episode of Tim
Allen's weekly TV show ("Home Improvement?") of several years ago.
