1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

Dabei steht an jedem Ende des Feldes eine Dampfmaschine und der Pflug wird
per Seil hin und zurück gezogen. Eine aufwändige Sache, aber im Vergleich
zum pflügen mit dem Pferd ein Quantensprung.

Nordschleife / Accident / Safety
One lap on the Nordschleife and some safety tips. Please read the tips in
the end or below. Thanks !
Take it easy. Don't go too fast. This applies especially to the more
experienced track drivers and racers. You might know how fast you can go
around a corner, but first you have to know EXACTLY what the corner is.
Race drivers often have the worst crashes as they enter a corner on the
limit, only to find the corner turns the OTHER way and they have nothing in
Stick to the right! The rules for overtaking on public driving are very
simple. Overtake on the left. Go slow on the right. This is regardless of
which direction the curve is taking you. If you're on the right-hand side
and doing your own speed, you don't even have to worry about who's behind
Check your mirrors. If checking the mirrors is becoming too difficult for
you, then you're going too fast! Go back to the previous point in this list
and stick to the right...
Don't race. The easiest way to crash is to try and keep up with, or stay
ahead of another car.
Don't time. There's no reason to time your laps when you're on your first
100 or so. You'll only be disappointed!
Edit Sept. 2012:
Some people think I'm approaching too fast for the driver Flugplatz over
the hill toward Schwedencreuz. It is an opinion I respect. I am of the
opinion that the driver was seen myself in the mirror when I got out of the
second right hand corner at Flugplatz, as they have a responsibility to do
when faster vehicles / bikes is
closing. Notwithstanding, some of my intent with the video to show that one
can not "rely" on those who are ahead of you. I have been in countless
situations where a driver of so called "fast" cars are not aware of what
comes from behind, because they believe that they are among the fastest.
Even when I'm running a BTG round at 8 min. I have a certain focus on
what's happening behind me. As It should also be expected that one running
9-12 min. also should have had. If this is too much, you should keep to the
right with the flashers on.
I assume that those who speak out actually know the Nürburgring in
(Playstation heroes do not count) If not, it is virtually impossible for me
to bring up my point. Stay safe, and remember to keep an eye in the mirror

Ford Model T Railcar at the WW&F Railway Museum
This Ford Model T inspection vehicle was built by the Monson Railroad in
Monson, Maine. It was loaned out by the Boothbay Railway Village to the
WW&F for one of their big open house events in August of 2002. More on the
Boothbay Railway Village at http://www.railwayvillage.org/
The Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway was a two-foot gauge
common carrier railroad that operated in the early part of the 1900's, up
until 1933 when the railroad ceased operations. The line ran from Wiscasset
in the south, to Albion and Winslow in the north. The Museum is located at
the site of the old Sheepscot station, with mainline track running north
from Cross Road, on the original roadbed.
They are laying track like there's no tomorrow, and have gone past the next
station in Alna Center which has been recreated with a run-around so that
they can finally run with the engine in the front both ways. Another
fantastic place for the whole family. Filmed in August 2002. More info on

oil change (shocking) after sitting for 50 years Ford Model A
I bought a 1930 (not 31 like I said in the video) Model A 5 window coupe
all original except for a dropped axle, a Mallory dual point distributor,
some dual electrode spark plugs, four blade radiator fan, 15" steel
reversed center wheels with slicks and a lawnmower fuel tank bolted to the
dash (reasons to believe it was a hot rod). It wouldn't turn over when I
got it so I took the plugs out and poured some Mistory oil in the holes and
let it sit for a few weeks, I turned it back n forth till I was able to
give it a few full turns, checked the oil level, put some gas in it, hooked
up a battery and it turned over fine with the starter but no fire, pulled
out the distributor to find a homemade shaft extention that wasn't long
enough so I rebuilt the distributor, made a new shaft, rebuilt the carb,
and now it fired up! I called Adrian to come over and check it out, he
said, "It sounds good but don't try driving it untill you change the oil".
Since the oil looked to be ok and at the correct level, I drove it up and
down the alley. I called him again to let him know how it went and the
first thing he asked was, "Did you change the oil?" So I got to work, took
the drain plug out and oil dribbled out no matter what i did it wouldn't
drain out so I took the oil pan off and found the oil caked at the bottom
of the pan, lesson learned.... Always pull the oil pan OFF to make sure you
don't run your newly acquired Old motor with a pan full of crud, I hope
this helps,,, more videos of this model A to come so stay tunned! thanks
thanks for the great advice Adrian.
To see it running check http://youtu.be/z5V0oXP8roE
Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in
probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug
wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but
couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before
shooting the vid!
