Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
Will it Run? Episode 11: 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline (Part1 of 2)
This is the latest installation in our series on salvaging junk cars and
trying to get them to run, for no really good reason. This time our subject
is a 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe, parked since 1966! Parts of the
engine are missing, and so are the seats. The budget for repairs is about
$20, as usual. We'll trade our junker pickup for the missing parts. I
traded a couple of dead Mercs for this Chev because I thought it should be
saved, and not parted out. Join us for a tour of Coyote Auto Salvage as we
find the missing parts and take our new treasure home. In part 2, see if we
can get it to go, and look a little better, too. Re-uploaded due to
steady-cam feature malfunction.
Thanks for checking it out!

Barn find 1927 Buick & 1941 Hudson- Reseda, California
In June of 2010 I was asked to help evaluate and uncover a rather unique
group of classic cars; one of which had be sitting since just after World
War 2. In fact there was an original WW2 Navy uniform still sitting in the
back seat. More rare cars came of hiding that fortuitous day. I was lucky
enough to recover and bring home a few of these time-forgotten relics.

1959 Chevrolet Bel Air vs. 2009 Chevrolet Malibu IIHS crash test
IIHS 50th anniversary demonstration test • September 9, 2009
In the 50 years since US insurers organized the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety, car crashworthiness has improved. Demonstrating this was a
crash test conducted between a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevrolet
Malibu. In a real-world collision similar to this test, occupants of the
new model would fare much better than in the vintage Chevy.
"It was night and day, the difference in occupant protection," says
Institute president Adrian Lund. "What this test shows is that automakers
don't build cars like they used to. They build them better."
The crash test was conducted at an event to celebrate the contributions of
auto insurers to highway safety progress over 50 years. Beginning with the
Institute's 1959 founding, insurers have maintained the resolve,
articulated in the 1950s, to "conduct, sponsor, and encourage programs
designed to aid in the conservation and preservation of life and property
from the hazards of highway accidents."
