Will it Run? Episode 3: Things to do with Used Cars
Smashing up a bunch of cars in a field. Some sweet jumps and crashes near the end. Watch for the General Lee Neon , the #43 Petty Intrepid Superbird, and the Messershmidt 109 Mercury Topaz. A great way to spend the day, for sure. Lots more smash-up derby racing to come! Music: Beethoven's 9th.
Will it Run? Episode 4: 1957 Dodge Regent
Got a 57 Dodge out of a field. Parked for over 40 years! Can we get her to
go under her own power? Its a 230 c.i. 6 and a 3-on-the-tree. Latest in the
series about just getting old stuff to run, for no really good reason. The
1957 Dodge Regent was a Canadian model, roughly equivalent to the Plymouth
Savoy. I like all these Exner-era Chryslers. Lots more to come!
My 93 Ford Aerostar Starts Up After A 7 Year Sleep
Starting it to take it with me when my house gets sold once the water
damage is repaired. As I was trying to rock it out of the ground it because
it sunk in over the years I did a small burnout with it in the dirt.
By the way, doing a burnout with the door open like that. Bad idea, as you
can see that I smoked my own ass out. lol
This van has served me well. My family took me and my brother on road trips
with it and then I took it on my own road trips when I was using it
I parked it in my backyard by my storage unit in 2007 and it hasn't ran or
moved since until 1-15-2014. The reason why I parked it was because the
overdrive goes on and off until it reaches 70 mph. That and I have to add a
quart of oil to the engine before reaching 3,000 miles on an oil change.
But it survived my mother over heating it in it's early life before I owned
it. It has 271,000 miles on it and I didn't think that it was going to
start after sitting for so long with seven year old gas in the tank. But
you can see the look on my face in the video that I was impressed that it
did. Just by putting a battery in it and getting the starter to loosen up
and finally turn the engine over.
The reason why I broke the passenger side window is because the door was
stuck shut and I was trying to get it open.
Why did I park it instead of getting rid of it? Well original I was saving
it to take it to Dave's Farm and finish what ever life it had left in it
over there. But now I have a new idea. I'm going to take it to a Demolition
Derby and have fun with it before junking it. It had a good life and run
and now we party.
Will it Run? Episode Nine: 1962 Plymouth Belvedere
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this horrible 1962 Plymouth; can we get it
to move again? It had been completely disassembled and left outside for
many years. The engine is seized, and the budget for repairs is zero, as
usual. Some unique problems, with it being a push button automatic, and
trying to jam in a later- model engine...
Its a bit longer than my other vids, I hope you like it! No more music,
as per viewer requests.
Thanks everyone for watching, commenting, and subscribing! More to come!
Will it Run? Episode 15: 1941 Dodge Luxury Liner! Part 3 of 3
Hi! This time we're going to get this old Dodge going for the first time in
34 years! It has been parked in a container since my friend Mark bought it
from his grandfather's estate in the late 70's. It doesn't run, and needs a
pretty comprehensive mechanical overhaul, including the brakes, fuel,
electrical, and cooling systems, and the valvetrain.
The plan is to get this car plated again and use it for a fun summer
driver. We are not going to touch the body or interior of the car, just the
mechanical stuff. The interior is all original, and the body is totally
solid, if a little dinged up in a couple spots...
We did have to disassemble the doors to repair all of the window
regulators, which had broken and seized up.
Thanks so much to Mark for inviting me to participate in this project and
allowing me to film much of it for my channel here on YouTube. We had a lot
of fun getting this old Luxury Liner going, I hope you enjoy checking out
the video, and feel free to share it with your friends if you like this
kind of thing! Cheers, and thanks again to everyone for commenting and
Three Car T Bone Accident With Injuries - Spanaway / Frederickson
October 4, 2009. Spanaway aka Frederickson. The driver of the Aerostar
van is believed to be a fault running a red light and getting t boned by
the Ford pickup. The impact great enough to cause the van to roll onto the
Volvo. The van driver was ejected and transported to a hospital. I do not
know if the injuries are serious. He was not wearing a seat belt. This
was at the intersection of Canyon Road East and 176th Street East at about
10:45 AM. Pierce county sheriff deputies invested the accident and Graham
Fire and Rescue responded.
Will it Run? Episode 7: 1964 Rambler 660 "Cross Country" Station Wagon
Cold War Motors just picked up this tidy 1964 Rambler 660 Wagon. It's got
the 196 c.i. ohv 6 cylinder engine and a 1 barrel carb. It's a 3 speed auto
with manual steering and brakes. Let's get it to go! The fuel pump was
shot from sitting so long, but otherwise the Rambler was complete. I think
the car has been off the road since the early 80's, judging by the bias
tires and old registrations. As per viewer requests, no more music! Thanks
for checking it out!
More Used Car Abuse
An insightful glimpse into the minds of tomorrows leaders.
Witness the maximum depreciation inflicted on the rare and priceless 1997
Toyota Special Commemorative Edition Sox & Martin Tercel by the vicious
Team Oldsmobile and their secret weapon 1992(?) W-30 Ninety-Eight Brougham.
Don't miss a chance to catch a glimpse of the Special Touring Parade
Phaeton Plymouth Caravelle for 1980 in Buford T. Justice livery, of course.
OK, so we're not exactly savin' the fuckin' whales around here.
1991 Aerostar and 1993 Astro cold start/walkaround
Starting up my Ford Aerostar and Chevy Astro, Exhaust sound, and walkaround. Both are nice
vans but I prefer the Aerostar due to mpg, driveability, and space. Will do
a video for van dwelling and rubber tramping in the Aerostar soon. Thanks
Ford Aerostar Actuator Rod Repair
Shows how to remove a steering wheel and replace an actuator rod on a 1996
Ford Aerostar AWD XLT. This is an intense repair and it is important to
have all required tools before starting otherwise you can easily get stuck
and require a tow truck and a mechanic to complete the repair process.
If your vehicle won't turn off (turned on, but now turning the key is doing
nothing) and you have a Ford (I can't say all Ford owners will be able to
use this advice) then pull the ignition switch out (first thing shown on
the video is the ignition switch hanging right below the air bag power
connector) and pull that metal pin sticking up towards you. This will turn
off your vehicle.
1974 Dodge Monaco "Bluesmobile"!
Just a short video of my 1974 Monaco. Hope you like it. This was a green
civilian unit that I painted and weathered to look like the old cop car
from "The Blues Brothers".

The Ford Aerostar is a minivan produced by Ford Motor Company for the North
American market; the first such design by Ford, it was sold from the 1986
to the 1997 model years. It was sold in both passenger van and cargo van
configurations in two body lengths with both rear wheel drive and all wheel
drive configurations. The Aerostar was sold only under the Ford brand; the
first minivan sold by the Lincoln-Mercury division was the 1993 Mercury
Villager. Production was ended after the 1997 model year after its
replacement by the Windstar in the 1995 model year; both product lines were
sold from 1995-1997. The role of the Aerostar cargo van was left unfilled
until the 2010 introduction of the Transit Connect.
The aerodynamic styling (.37 coefficient of drag) resembled the Ford Taurus
introduced alongside it for 1986. An early commercial ad campaign compared
the side profile of the Aerostar to that of the NASA Space Shuttle. For
much of its later life, the Aerostar would be marketed as part of Ford's
For 1992, the Aerostar received minor design changes on the exterior to
improve its aerodynamics. Although no sheetmetal was changed, the Aerostar
now had an updated front end. To live up to the "aero" part of its name,
the sealed-beam headlamps were replaced by replaceable-bulb composite
units. The front turn signal lenses changed from all-amber to mostly clear.
The grille insert was changed yet again, moving the Ford logo from the
center to the top third of the grille. This was done to match the similarly
redesigned Econoline and the then-new Explorer. The Aerostar's distinctive
A-pillar windows were blacked out further to look slightly smaller. On XLT
wagons, two-tone paint was an option; instead of the Eddie Bauer tan,
silver was the typical accent color. On vans with two-tone paint, bumpers
were now painted completely body-color; gray bumpers were still fitted to
single-color Aerostars. 1992 also marked the introduction of plastic wheel
Other changes were made as Ford introduced new safety features to the
Aerostar. The interior received a major redesign as Ford added a driver
airbag as standard equipment; 3-point seatbelts on all outboard seats were
also added. With the addition of the airbag, Ford took the opportunity to
make major changes to the dashboard. The design and layout of the controls
was changed to improve ergonomics, while the gauge panel, climate controls,
and other minor controls (wipers, headlights) were replaced with parts
common to other Ford vehicles. The gear selector for the automatic
transmission moved from the floor to the steering column; a floor console
with cup holders and a coin holder took its place. In Aerostars with analog
instruments, a digital odometer was added. The placement of the radio
controls stayed the same, but the faceplate was updated from the mid-1980s
As with the 1986-1991 model, the Aerostar was offered in a cargo van and
three different trim levels for the 7-passenger minivan. The XL, XLT, and
Eddie Bauer were carried over. An exception is 1997, the final year; all
versions except the XLT and the cargo van were discontinued. The standard
engine for second-generation Aerostars is the 3.0L Vulcan V6 with the
option of the 4.0L Cologne V6. All-wheel drive was continued as an option
through the end of production

1990 Lada Samara Start-up and Walk-around!
Hi! Today we're going to have a look at my friend's 1990 Lada Samara. These
cars are almost totally extinct now in Canada, but this one is still being
driven daily. She's not exactly mint, but I think it's worth a look, if
only because many people have never seen one. I don't think these cars were
ever sold in the U.S.; what about in Europe?
