Detroit Diesel 8V53T, (turbo just removed for test run) this is literally the first starting attempt after bringing it home, it had sat for years. Not so many 8V53 Detroits were made, and very few turbocharged ones, This is one of about four I know of.
V12 Detriot Diesel 525HP
Setting the engine up and breaking it in.Remember this engine is just being
started after a rebuild so that's why it's smoking from the assembly lube
and the rack will be set-up to stop the hunting etc etc. Then the oil is
changed and the engine painted. These engine's go into Euclid mining rock
trucks,and they were in many other equipment/vehicles.The engine has
rebuild heads,turbo's, blower, water
pump,all internal parts and the air compressor All done in the great north

6V53TT Silver Detroit Diesel first start (part1)
Detroit Diesel Silver 6V53TT military being fired up for the very first
time ever. This unit was originally assembled in 1987 but was never used
and until this past year it sat the crate it was shipped in. This 53
series is one of the rare Silver units with cross head-pistons and a bypass
blower. It was designed as a single turbo, but has been upgraded to a twin turbo setup. A little sluggish to come awake for
the very first time, but now its a true screamin' demon!
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.

Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
Boeing Dual-Driver Truck/Trailer Combination
This video shows one of the unique dual-driver truck/trailer combination
vehicles used by Boeing to transport aircraft wing spars to the Boeing
assembly facility in Everett, Washington. The first driver, as with any
other truck, is in the "front" cab. You can see the second driver in his
cab underneath the trailer, just in front of the rear wheels.
