Heavy Metal Tow Truck [S7 Ep. 2-1]
Today on GEARZ, project Heavy Metal is back as Stacey rolls the old
International cab over truck into the shop so he can outfit it with a
vintage Holmes dual wrecker bed. It is auto recycling at its best as the
big truck continues to come together using parts from a junkyard wrecker,
swap meet vintage beer kegs, and even some new aftermarket parts. If you've
always thought that you had to spend big money to build a unique vehicle,
this "Heavy Metal" truck will not only change your mind, but probably have
you digging through old junkyards and checking out pastures in hopes of
finding a vintage truck project of your own! That's a typical
reaction...and that's typical for GEARZ!

Grand National passes Corvette as it wrecks
John N. testing his tricked out Stage 2 Grand National at Thunder Valley
Raceway park. His opponent in a Corvette stays in it too long and narrowly
misses hitting the GN as it passes by! The GN's build up had recently been
completed and this was intended to be a soft pass with only 20# of Boost. The camera person was there to film
the car's reaction to the launch for tuning purposes. They were so focused
on the GN that they did not notice what was happening to the Corvette until
it was over.
2006 Mercury Milan
This is my mom's 2006 Mercury Milan premier which is the same thing as a
Ford Fusion. This one has a 2.3 liter I4 engine with a 5 speed automatic
transmission, it has leather seating, six cd changer, auto headlights,auto
climate control, It rides real nice, there's never been any kind of
mechanical problem at all with it.

Design is all Mercury executives have to discuss these days. Traditionally,
a Mercury was nothing more than a Ford with snazzy trim and additional
standard equipment, the epitome of a practice known as brand-engineering.
In the 1990s, Mercury executives vowed that products distinctly different
from their Ford counterparts would Boost sales over the long term, saving the
brand from the same fate that ultimately befell now-defunct Plymouth. This
strategy cost Ford Motor Company extra development money and resulted in
sales flops like the blobby, undersized Villager minivan and that rolling
mass of triangles known as the Cougar sport coupe.
