Proof by Test (9 Things NOT to do with your Nash)
Ever thought about entering your vintage tub Nash in a dirt track
competition? Does it take serious impulse control to keep from racing your
Rambler Landau up Pikes Peak? Going slack jawed at the thought of going
airborne with your Airflyte?
Well, snap out of it! Do you really want to make that call to Hagerty's
afterward? (Would they even believe your lame excuses?) NO!
Instead, check out this ridiculously rare 1951 Nash film, and watch some
famous vintage maniacs destroy their Nashes all in the name of safety and
Look for previously unknown footage of Bill France, Sr., and Curtis Turner
racing their 1950 Ambassador in the Carrera Panamericana. You'll also see
actual Nash Airflytes driven by Herschel Buchanan in dirt track races.
But the rarest/coolest footage of all is at the end of the film: it's Lucky
Lee Lott and his Hell Drivers jumping Nashes, skidding Nashes, and wrecking
Nashes. (Hard to believe that this was a real Nash-sponsored film!)
It's the perfect Nash film for getting those destructive impulses out of

1949 Nash Ambassador Airflyte barnfind 1st time driven in over 44 years
Come along for a ride in this arcane behemoth !!! It feels so satisfying to
drive a car that has sat for so long and required so much work to bring
back to life and restore to driver status. This kind of job satisfaction
keeps me going. It's my life reward and passion. All brakes, fuel system,
engine and chassis repairs now complete. This old Airflyte now purrs like a
kitten and stops on a dime. Update: this car is a "Special Super", of
course, we all know it it super special....Haha, it has special handwritten
in pencil on the fire wall, but, I never thought much about it. Turns out
it has been positively identified as a very rare 1949 "Special Super", no
other 1949 special supers are known to exist....yet
Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
