Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Chris Ireland's Indian, Bonneville Speed Week 2012
This is a longer version of my 1942 Indian Scout at Bonneville. She was
shipped over with 5 other Brit bikes. I did 120mph on the Dyno in the UK at sea level but
the Salt's a great leveller & I manage 81.5mph, but still not bad for a 70
year old sidevalve & it put a huge grin on my face! It took 2 years to save
for this & I'll be back in 2 years time, as I now have "Salt Fever".
A compilation of historic wrecks...from 1931, to just the other day. You've
never seen anything like this before. MUSIC by the HOT ROD REBELS!!!

Racing Bonneville On a $300 Craigslist Motorcycle - /RideApart
"You don't have to spend a million bucks to fulfill your dreams. I bought a
bike for $300, got it running and entered it in a race I'd always dreampt
Bonneville is an epic thing that brings out all kinds of speed contraptions
and it was an honor to ride an old 1986 Honda VFR750 in the
Run-Whatcha-Brung class and pretend to be like my childhood heroes.
If I can do it, anyone can." — Jamie Robinson
