West Coast Custom Cougars [S4 Ep.13-2]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls the V8 Interceptor/ Cougar back into the shop and begins upgrading the rear end and rear suspension to handle all the massive power that has been stuffed under the hood. The parts are flyin' as in goes a custom 3-link torque arm suspension, a 9" Ford rear end, and a tubular sub-frame to prevent the car from flexing. If you have a classic Mustang or Cougar, you're gonna want to see this! Then Stacey shows you where to get parts for your Mustang or Cougar project by paying a visit to a special salvage yard that specializes only in... you guessed it... Classic Cougars! If you've ever wondered where to get those special parts... now you know. After that we take a trip to Michigan Tech to check out their amazing testing facilities and put some actual products to the test. It's all here... and it's all GEARZ!
V8 Interceptor [S4 Ep. 15-3]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey brings the Rat Roaster two steps closer to completion as he installs a custom Exhaust system underneath the car to quiet it down and then lays out the 3" chopped top that is going to cover the top of the car when it's raining. If you've ever wondered how they do convertible tops, this is the show to see. After that, he rolls back the Trail Boss Jeep. Last week was about increasing off-road performance... this week is about street performance, as he continues to transform it into a rig that is Boss on the trail... and on the street! Stacey continues with the V8 Interceptor project, as he throws on wheels and tires, to give it a real mean stance! GRRRR! Stacey also introduces the gauge cluster for the '67
The V8 Interceptor Paint & Body [S6 Ep.13-3]
Everybody knows that 80's and 90's cars are hot right now, and one of the most desirable is the Fox bodied Mustang because it's cheap and offers incredible bang for the buck. Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls in a 1990 Mustang cop car and shows how easy it is to pull out an automatic tranny, and stuff in a Tremec 6spd so you can shift the gears properly. Then it's off to the Hot Rod Institute in South Dakota to see the paint and body work that the instructors and students have been doing to the V8 Interceptor. If you thought this '67 Cougar was wild before, wait 'til you see this show! Here Kitty,.....Kitty......Kitty....
The V8 Interceptor Returns [S7 Ep.8-3]
Today on GEARZ, the V8 Interceptor is BACK and wearing a striking coat of glossy black paint! How did it happen? Well, Stacey walks you through the process and shows off the incredible paint and body work that was done by the Hot Rod Institute. From the subtle body nips and tucks, to the major fabrication of a new roof, this classic Cougar now has a straighter body than anything that may have rolled off the assembly line in 1967! But the paint is only half the story, as Stacey starts to re-assemble the car with bumpers, lights and engine, you start to get a good look at what is rapidly becoming the ultimate street predator!
