Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the
foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging
condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since
1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free
given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for
45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE
US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one
you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters.
Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have
received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise
forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960
VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965.
We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up
a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a
tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us
a call today if you know of one. Thanks again. Skeeters (208)200-6053

Militaire motorcycle 1915
The 4 cylinder MILITAIRE was produced from 1913 until 1917 by the Militaire
Auto Company of Buffalo New York.
Its four cylinder ( inlet over Exhaust) 68 cu. in.
engine produce some 11.5 H.P.
It has some very unusual features, such as wooden artillery wheels with 28
inch x 3 clincher tires, a curved front axel on which the front bearing
slid in order to make a turn, a car like three-speed "on the floor" type
stick shift plus reverse gear, shaft drive through beveled gears with an
enclosed ring gear and pinion at the rear wheel and on the side,
retractable outrigger wheels which also has a big advantage when waiting
for the traffic lights.
These foot lever operated wheels retract like landing gear on an aircraft.
One can stop to a complete standstill and accelerate again without taking
ones feet from the foot boards.
The length of 97" must have made it the longest machine on the road. Speed
is claimed to be from 3 to 70 miles an hour.
The original cost was $335.00 and it was a lot of machine for the money.
This 1915 model is an extremely rare survivor of one of the most
charismatic motorcycles ever built.
Only a handfull of these have survived and this one is presented to you by
www.yesterdays.nl worldwide dealers for fine antique motorcycles.

World War II, the majority of those used in battle were Harley-Davidson
Wearing the requisite Olive Drab paint, these were 45-cubic-inch V-twins
fitted with special equipment for wartime use. Items such as an ammo box,
machine-gun scabbard, and rear carrier are obvious; less so are the special
"blackout lights" front and rear that projected only a small sliver of
light in an effort to avoid detection.

1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.

Shocking Motorcycle Crash into Bicycles 4/27/2013
Rider hits cyclists coming out of a turn on Mulholland Hwy. Cyclists didn't
appear to have serious injuries. Note about cyclists and riders co-existing
on this famous 2 mile stretch of road. Even though bicycles are up here in
increasing numbers, this is the first time a bicycle has been hit by a
motorcycle In the four years I've been up here. Motorcycle riders of all
skill levels come up here to ride. The rider was not speeding & riding fine
until he hit his foot and stood the bike up causing the bike to go wide. He
then target fixated on the cyclist. . Here is a similar crash -
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGAXsv2SL0c There are many more just like
it. It is a very common type of crash on this turn. Just usually no one is
there and the rider falls alone. It is very unfortunate, and a rare case of
being in the wrong place at the wrong time. We wish the cyclists a speedy
