8V53T Detroit Diesel first start
Detroit Diesel 8V53T, (turbo just
removed for test run) this is literally the first starting attempt after

made, and very few turbocharged ones,
This is one of about four I know of.
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.
Burnout contest at the 4wheel Jamboree 2012 in Lima, Ohio on May 20th.
This truck blows it's turbo, and
apparently caught on fire mid way through his run. (even though I never saw
any flames) Fortunately for him, he won 1st place in the end.

1978 Peterbilt 359 started up after 8 years of sitting
My old Peterbilt had been sitting for 8 years. We thought we had better
fire it up before any more time went by, so we primed the fuel lines with
fuel and rounded up four old car batteries, gave the glow plugs 20 seconds
to warm things up - - - and she fired right up - - this is Part 1 - - first
firing after 8 years. It is a Cat 3406-A engine

Dirt Cheap Rat Rod! 1968 Charger Buildup and Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 23
Freiburger and Finnegan think this is the best episode so far! It's the
longest, too. This show has it all: a Mad-Max-vibe 1968 Dodge Charger built
with motorhome parts, sideways Dukes-style action, lots of low-buck
wrenching, hilarious snafus, and cameo appearances by the Macho Grande from
episode 8, the '66 Buick Special convertible from a pre-Roadkill episode,
the ramp truck from episode 20, and the Fury from episode 22. Enjoy the
last Roadkill of 2013!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Original video was apparently by colinfurze, funny stuff man!
NOT MY VIDEO! But had a hard time locating it when I put it up so I posted
it here. Funny stuff and I thought it was great. I do however agree the oil
on the road could potentially be an issue for motorbikes.
Some crazy kids decide to run their motor with no head and soon to be no
oil as it is being forcefully pressurized out of the oil passages that
should be going to the now non-existant head's location.
