When things go wrong
This is my first attempt in this type of video so all the helpful advices
are welcome. It's a mix of speed (mostly stunt) and motocross crashes. I
tried not to collect videos from here (it could be a bit boring if you've
already seen them separately), so they are from other sources. And by the
way, this is my first widescreen YouTube video, don't forget to watch it in
high quality if you can! =)

1927 REO Truck - Slide Pack
I'm working on an old 1927 REO truck that has been left open to the weather
for many years and as a result is in a fairly poor state. However it is not
past the point where it cannot be restored, so join me on a journey to see
if I can get it back on the road.
The Death of a V8 RX7
My 302 powered FB RX7 decided after months of abuse to throw two rods on my
way home from work. It put a hole in the oil pan and two holes in the
block but still I drove it home. I decided since nothing was savable to
take it out back and finish it off.

Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real
lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even
with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover
distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the
firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1.
Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer &
build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all &
just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.
Old tractors never die! Ursus vs. Land Rover.
This film its just a little joke. Many vehicles -many uses. Tractor is
used to plow the field, all-terrain car used to efficiently off-road move.
Be aware of the differences. Different gears, tyres, motors and many
things... remember that! This is not sugestion who is better. I like all
vintage, off-road machines.
