This is something of a tribute video to Chris Bischof's video that got me really excited about this race way back in 2003.
My average on the northbound leg was 90.004 mph, which was good enough for second place in the class, but my average of 89.722 on the return leg resulted in a 9th place finish.

1973 Mercury Montego MX
I finished painting this in Jan 2013. Removed the hood, deck, all trim,
bumpers, and doors. All panels were stripped and bodyworked (not much
bodywork needed). Painted 2013 Toyota/Lexus Sunset Bronze Mica (runs $900+
I also sent out the w/o and v-top mouldings and had all orig clearcoat
removed. Then they were polished. New non-padded top. Sprayed the 1/4"
stripe on the v-top moldings black bc/cc.
The Montego has a 400 2v completely stock.

1978 Mercury Grand Marquis Video 1 Owner 6.6L 400 V8 Classic Youngtimer Lincoln Town Car Ford Sedan
78 Mercury Grand Marquis 312,000 Miles Near Mint 1 Owner 6.6L 400 Big Block
Classic Youngtimer http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a very cool car.
Usually I like cars with really low miles but this car is sol cool because
it has 312,000 original miles on it and runs like a newer car. This is only
a 1 Owner Car and yes the miles are actual. The previous owner drove the
car back and fourth from Canada to California. You would never guess the
miles by looking at the car. The factory baby blue paint is in great shape
and has a very nice shine to it. The factory white vogue top looks great on
the car and is in about as good of shape as you will find. The body is
straight as can be and the paint is original. It has the 6.6L 400 engine
that fires right up and runs great. It has been rebuilt along with many
other things on the car. I talked to the mechanics that worked on the car
and they remembered the guy and how good he took care of his car and really
liked it. You would have to really like a car to put that many miles on it.
The car feels and handles like a newer car and just floats down the road.
The interior is in mint condition along with the rest of the car. Only the
drivers seat shows minimal wear. It looks like he was the only one that
made the trips because none of the other seats look like they hardly ever
got sat in. Everything about this car is just clean as can be. You won't
find another car like this.

How to Spot and Service a Stuck Rear Caliper - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at
During the used car inspection that I did on my Subaru I found evidence
that the rear calipers weren't doing their job so I decided to make this
video of how I handled the situation. It's been about a month since I shot
this video and even though I didn't machine the rotors they are actually
much better than they were, I don't hear any noise and the car stops fine
so you may also be able to get away without machining the rotors.

NORC 150 MPH Class Team Hall & Nass Z06 ORR May 2012 Full Course Run
The Mission - Drive down 90 miles of two lane blacktop on a closed public
highway, breaking the light beam on the other end at as close to a perfect
150 MPH average in 36 Minutes FLAT as humanly possible.
The following is the Motorama LIVE Team Hall & Nass Corvette Z06 Open Road
Racing in the 150 MPH Class at the Nevada Open Road Challenge (NORC) on
Nevada Highway NV 318, May 20th, 2012. This is the Spring race, which is an
exact replica of the Silver State Classic Challenge (SSCC) that runs every
PLEASE NOTE - Our race grid footage was chopped off to allow this video to
begin at the true exact zeroing '0' of the SSCC atomic timing and scoring
clock on professional editing software. This video shows our entire run in
all of its raw, unedited glory, then continues on less than a minute after
the finish line as we say our recorded time aloud and exchange high fives.
So sit back and enjoy 36 minutes of LS7 singing along two lane blacktop for
90 miles in an attempt to average a perfect 150 MPH average speed in 36
minutes flat on NV 318.
Additional information on this run:
As stated above, the goal in the 150 MPH Class at NORC and SSCC is to run
the 90 mile course on NV 318 in 36 minutes flat at a perfect 150 MPH
average. This is time/speed/distance racing on an uber scale.
The Result - Silver State Classic Challenge official timing and scoring
listed our run as 36:00.5473 seconds at an average speed of 149.9620 MPH.
What is interesting is that our clocks (and the one on this video) show us
as running it in 35:59.88 seconds at just a tick over 150 MPH. Ironically,
note that IF our time of .12 of a second off of perfect had been recognized
as our official scoring time, it still would have only been good enough for
3rd place out of the 14 entrants in the 150 MPH Class, as the winning time
was a 35:59.0164. Yes, the competition in the 150 MPH Class is THAT tight!
However, SSCC official time puts us in 6th place overall in the 150 MPH
This video just goes to show that no matter how good YOU may think you are
in time/speed/distance Open Road Racing, the fact remains that in the end,
you are ONLY as good as someone else's timing system in the official record
books. Like it or not, sometimes, those are just the breaks in ORR.
We race because we love the speed, the people and the cars. The love of the
sport is our friend, even if sometimes, the timing clocks are not.
We'll be back ...
