I had a request for some live engine sounds with no music...This is the same Dodge 230 c.i. flat head 6 chassis running with 2 different bodies on it. Actually runs pretty good, considering it's been sitting since the 60's, and is still running its original plugs, wires, cap, etc. Thanks for checking it out.

this is a 1957 VW bug Vert that has sat since 1978. tring to get it
started. so close but it was getting late.
Saving More Cars From the Crusher! Part 2 of 2
I went to the Stan Reynolds site to buy a couple of 1951 Kaisers that were
going to be destroyed if they didn't find a home. I got lucky and heard
about these cars just in time; many others had already been cubed. In part
2 of this video I take a walk past the stacks of the less fortunate ones...
Redneck Car Show! Sept 2011
Hi! My friend Agent 1080 hosted the second annual Redneck Car Show at the
Lean Burn Technologies compound. A great opportunity to show off all of our
beaters and rusty yard decorations! Lots of shabby Mopars, as usual, and a
few others as well. This year, the coveted "Western Canada's Worst Car"
trophy went to Agent 1080 for his nasty 1980 Dodge Aspen. Cold War Motors
was well represented at the show, and brought a surprise entry...
58 Plymouth Belvy First Drive Update #5
First time taking her out on the open road. I'm gonna pull the trany and
just wanted to see how she acted before starting that job. She didn't seem
too bad, think I'll replace the leaky seal and test her some more.
Will it Run? Episode 6: 1958 Plymouth Savoy
Time to get the 58 Plymouth Savoy up and running! I put it on a good frame
and changed it to a standard shift. Still a long way to go, but a huge
improvement on the piece of junk I brought home last winter. It's now a 230
c.i. flathead 6 with a 3-on-the-tree. Hope you like it like I do! Thanks
for checking it out!
Route 66 Classic Cars
Back in the days when cars had style, and even with so many makes and
models, all changing every year, they made a profit. And, not only that . .
but one could sit on the porch and name the cars as they drove by. Unlike
today, when they all look the same . This is when a car was a car, so sit
back as we go back and get your Kicks On Route 66 Classic Cars
1957 Plymouth Fury - Oldtimerfriedhof Kaufdorf - Swiss Junkyard
Today we picked up the 1957 Fury I bought a few months ago. The operator
lifted the car using a costum-built rack and gently loaded the car onto the
trailer. Thanks a lot!
Heute ist es soweit! Wir sind in Kaufdorf und holen den 1957er Plymouth
Fury ab, den ich dort bei der Auktion im September 2009 gekauft habe. Das
Fahrzeug wurde bereits vor einigen Wochen geborgen und von einem
Mitarbeiter vorsichtig auf unseren Anhänger verladen.

Found in a Field: 1958 Dodge Mayfair Hardtop!
Cold War Motors just dragged this sweet 1958 Dodge home from out in the
country where it had been lying abandoned for many years. It is a very rare
piece, with only about 3000 ever made, including all body styles. These
Canadian "Plodges" used Plymouth bodies and interiors with Dodge front ends
and were manufactured in Canada through 1959. The Mayfair is the
top-of-the-line model, and is the equivalent to the Plymouth Belvedere.
This one has a 313 Poly-head V8 and power steering. Cold War Motors is
going to restore this car as soon as a couple of other projects are
Farmers used to push old cars down into the banks hoping to hold them in
place. It was legal "back then" of course.The price of scrap steel was
not much back then and this seemed a good use for them. Some of those cars
were push by walls of water in big down pours, pushed down to the river.
Others were put directly on the river bank to help stop the river
encroaching any further onto a farmers river bottom ground as the river
would always change its course through the years and sometime in a few
hours...It was legal back then, of course not anymore. These cars and
trucks have had more miles of river pass them than they have driven
Save This Plymouth Belvedere!
I don´t try to advertise or something, but I couldn´t bear to see this
car go to waste.
Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The
junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over
the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given
special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed
with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be
done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore.
Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.
