The Rat Roaster - Engine [S2 Ep. 2-3]
Today on GEARZ, the "Rat Roaster" returns and Stacey finally reveals the kind of power plant that would have made this wild deuce roadster the fastest car in the valley in 1968. And if dual carbs, a blower, and about 600 horsepower doesn't get you going, maybe the fact that he's stuffing a 5 speed manual transmission behind it will! If you?ve ever wondered how to plan a project out so it makes sense and then follow it through, this is the one to watch. Then Stacey digs into the Parts Bin to take a look at some of coolest products on the market to help you build your own special ride!
The Bushmaster (Part 2) [S1 Ep.15-3]
This week, Stacey rolls back Ted Nugent's big Bronco and begins to transfer it into a beast called "THE BUSHMASTER." The purpose?..to show you what kind of potential there is in building a '8O'S or '90'S Bronco or Blazer. First, we walk you through how Stacey replaced the rusty, crusty body and then showcase the paint work that was done by a bunch of students at VC Tech. Finally airbrush artist Mickey Harris adds some "bite" to the body. On top of that, the Nuge himself shows up to jam and laugh in the shop, and we announce the winner of the Cornwell Tool Box! If you miss this show... well...you missed it!!!
The Phoenix: Ted Nugent Bronco [S5 Ep.3-1]
There is a saying that for every good side of something , there's also a dark side. Today on GEARZ, Stacey goes there as he reveals what to do when bad things happen to good projects. Using Ted Nugent's old broken down and discarded Bronco as an example, he shows how to start over and re-kindle the passion in a project that has been given up on by everybody else. If your project has been stolen or stripped, or has become stranded by hard times, sometimes all it needs is a little change of direction to get it to rise out of the ashes and soar again. If Stacey can get Ted's old Bronco to rise like a Phoenix out of the ashes and fly again, you can do the same thing with your project too! You just have to roll up your sleeves and get to it!
