Ca Speedway 66 Furyous Physics Burnout - 1/4 Mile Drag
Man this was fun! My machine is geared more for top end - than for acceleration, but being the only classic cruiser at the strip drew a lot of attention. Thrust over to my channel and view this vehicle performing more of what she enjoys - evasive maneuvers and high speed runs (up to 142mph). While you are there, ride along in other vintage machinery on the go and scan my encounter with the publishing industry. The Fury seen in this video is an essential element of a Police Officer's character in the fast- paced novel Seven Skins (now sprinting from the gate on SCRIBEWORX.NET).
Driving to work in my 1958 Plymouth - Christine's on the road again!
This is me and Christine on my way to work. It's just a short trip to test
my new camera. Finally I'm able to do HD videos. Sorry, I still can't
afford a GoPro! :)

Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/
Toughness of the 1936 Plymouth is demonstrated by showing how components,
structures, and the entire vehicle are "torture tested." Includes several
good shots of deliberately rolling cars, and daredevil driving by "Hell
Drivers' such as Lucky Teter and Jimmy Lynch.

Plymouth was a marque of automobiles based in the United States, produced
by the Chrysler Corporation and its successor DaimlerChrysler. Production
was discontinued on June 29, 2001 in the United States.
The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler
Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was
already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced
slightly higher than their competition, but offered all standard features
such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not
provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler
dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the ship Mayflower which
landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from
Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among
The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When
Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car
company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the
package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch
the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion
car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end
Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create
the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was
dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929.
Great Depression, 1940s and 1950s
While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end
marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque
helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation
in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930,
Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and
Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive
period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars.
In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and
boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler
decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder
count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped
with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC,
introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's
wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold
poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in
(284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders,
hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the
car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and
is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the
'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was
sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is
consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today. In 1937, Plymouth
(along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety features such as flat
dash boards with recessed controls and the back of the front seat padded
for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped overseas to Sweden,
Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it was sold as a
'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the Chrysler factory
outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933 Model PC stayed
in the Plymouth until the 1959 models.
In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door
convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was
prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's
Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power
folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six
For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American
automobile brands; it together with Chevrolet and Ford were commonly
referred to as the "low-priced three" marques in the American market...
1959 Plymouth Sport Fury - Test Drive & Review
Since I am into more things than just RC I thought this might be a great
way to expand the channel a little.
I have been wanting to do a review and drive of a long time member of the
family. This is the old man's 1959 Plymouth he has had.. well basically
since 1959. I hope you enjoy seeing this "old bomb" as he calls it.

I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action.
It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated
headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through
a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out
strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the
engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior
looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop
you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

134545 / 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lnragwb
A highly exclusive aero car that features an original 440/4-speed
powertrain, this Plymouth Superbird wears original sheetmetal under a
correct white on black color combination. And if you're shopping for a bad
to the bone investment that's fun to look at, a blast to drive and ready to
hit the show circuit, it's the classic of your dreams!
The slick coupe's high quality, frame-off restoration began with a full
array of original, rust-free sheetmetal. Take one look down that slab-sided
metal and you'll see straight and clean panels that are finessed far past
anything from Lynch Road assembly. Pull those panels into the sunlight and
their correct Alpine White two-stage accurately reproduces Chrysler's
crisp, planar lines. Step up close to those lines and you'll find even gaps
that are devoid of any sloppy patches or second-rate finishing work. And,
ultimately, it all boils down to one very impressive pavement pounder that
inspires comments and elicits stares every time it hits the road!
Hoist the long hood and you'll find an original, 440 cubic inch Super
Commando V8 that's authenticated by a 2536430 casting number, a February
(2) 28th (28) of 1969 (69) casting date and a matching 179782 partial VIN.
At the top of that 375 horsepower monster, a big,
4-barrel carburetor rides within a beefy, Organisol-coated air cleaner. At
the base of that carburetor, a correct Chrysler intake hangs between
correct heads and traditional, stamped steel valve covers. At the front of
those valve covers, a reliable points distributor shoots spark through
Chrysler Electronic Suppression wires. And at the sides of that
distributor, fully restored Exhaust
manifolds funnel spent gases into great sounding, true-dual tail pipes.
Behind that mill, an original A833 4-speed, which wears a matching 179782
partial VIN, provides solid, poignant shifts. That tough transmission sends
power to a correct Dana 60 rear end, which spins a proven Sure Grip
differential around correct, 3.54 gears. At the front of the car,
Chrysler's beefy Hemi suspension utilizes an A12 sway bar and standard
power steering to make quick work of big bumps and tight curves. At the
back of the car, that same Hemi suspension hangs correctly staggered
springs at the sides of a leak-free stainless fuel tank. Stops come
courtesy of standard power front disc and rear drum brakes. And all this
Mopar goodness rolls on prerequisite Rallye wheels, which twist 255/60R15
Cooper Cobra radials around subdued center caps and bright stainless rings.
Inside this famous Plymouth, a factory-correct interior is clean,
well-optioned and surprisingly stylish. Seating, an ultra-rare all-bench
set up, displays no significant signs of wear. In front of those benches, a
straight, crack-free dash hangs original factory gauges beside a familiar
Chrysler Solid State. At the bottom of that dash, well-maintained carpet
centers a Hurst Pistol Grip shifter between rubber Road Runner floor mats.
And in front of the driver, a monochromatic steering wheel spins a silver
horn ring around a cool Road Runner centerpiece.
A poster child for the golden era of Detroit, the Plymouth Superbird stands
head and shoulders above nearly every classic in terms of looks,
exclusivity and performance. Few cars are as popular as they are
polarizing, and that simply adds to its cache. With a smooth,
numbers-matching powertrain, all-original sheetmetal and enough visual
flash to stand out in a mirror factory, this awesome coupe is about as
close to the ultimate muscle car as you can get!

After the movie wrapped Martin found exactly what he had been looking for.

Space Invader Shuttles Thru Los Angeles - Quite The Endeavor...
10/13/2012 The Space Shuttle Endeavor inches along Crenshaw Ave and Martin
Luther King Blvd, on her final Journey to The California Science Center. It
took me from 1:30 PM - straight through 6:30 AM the following day (napping
in the car) to get this footage and then just as darkness fled - drove my
66 Fury home 80 miles. - It was worth it, and I thank the 7-11 Gods across
the street for sustaining me. Is ice coffee a food group? Dairy, beans,
must be good. People were awesome and the diverse crowd had a prevalence
of goodwill - even with hrs of delays and false starts. I heard someone
there say "space travel brings us all together", just as joining forces
against a hostile space race always does in the movies. An interesting
correlation exists there... Ending on a light note, - I found it amusing
that at the opening of this video, a detached sign pole could be evidence
of the famous Johnny Carson quote "Cut Off Your Slauson", which he
routinely stated in a skit on The Tonight Show ... Perhaps that scenario
can be incorporated into a monologue about the Space Ship's trip ???
Antique Stutz Fire Engine - Jay Leno or Disney Please Rescue!
This late teens - early 20's rig is adorned with pumps & hoses and appears
all original and complete - except for the grill and radiator ornaments.
last registered in 1966! She is located on RD 483 at the "Piute Meadows
Trading Post" south of the town of Havilah in Kern County CA. The whole
property is for sale and the future of this classic workhorse is in
peril... Hope someone out there can handle this size of a project and
resurrect or at least preserve this valiant artwork of American history...
Havilah means Gold - and this sure is a large chunk of California's.
Note: The diesel starting up at the end of the video is obviously not this
machine - but the timing was impeccable for the quest of breathing new life
into this beauty...
