Yes, the TPS is a definite possibility. The easy test is to just 
unplug the TPS and drive the car. If these particular symptoms go 
away, the TPS is at fault.

I have a faq on testing the various years of TPSs. I'll forward a 
copy to you after I get home, which will be a little over a week from 
now. I don't seem to have a copy of that on my laptop. Note that the 
Bentley test is only good for '68-9, even though Bentley seems to 
think it works for all years.

Nice video. Sounded like you were enjoying yourself.  ;-)
