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!
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
What's in the Barn?
Just a quick tour through the Cold War Motors barn! Walk past the '61
Belvedere 4-door sedan and the 1966 Mercedes 230s "heckflosse" to the '67
Fury 2-door hardtop and the '72 Newport Royal 4-door hardtop. Duck through
the hole in the wall to see the '76 Chrysler Newport Custom 4-door sedan
behind a rare '57 Borgward Isabella 2-door Sedan. Then there is a 1951
Hudson Pacemaker 4-door sedan in front of another Plymouth, this time a
1950 Deluxe 2-door fastback sedan. The bikes are 60's & 70's Japanese and
the outboard is a 1957 Johnson Sea-Horse 18 HP. 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.
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.
Removing and installing a car stereo...for a Ford Aerostar Van!!!
David and I took out our am/fm cassette player from our Ford Aerostar Van
and installed a am/fm CD player we got from a friend!!!
NOTE: You need a special tool for removal of this ford stereo system, its
called a DIN TOOL!!! We made ours out of an old wire coat hanger...
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".
1953 Packard Saved From the Crusher!
Hi! This time we're going to give this old Packard Clipper a home so it
doesn't get melted down and made into 7 or 8 Yarii. This old girl has seen
way better days, but I wanted one for the CWMC used-car lot to class the
place up a bit. Thanks for joining us as we take a little look around this
straight-8-powered beauty. It's equipped with the Ultramatic transmission,
Packard's own automatic. No power steering in this one, though! This car
was originally a light grey with a black top and grey interior. At some
point it seems like it was repaired after an accident on the left front
corner and repainted this green with a white top.
I'm not sure what to do with this Packard, but I just wanted it anyway.
Maybe we'll try sometime to get it going again? Let us know what you think.
Thanks for watching this stuff; I enjoy sharing these junkyard gems with
you. Please subscribe to the coldwarmotors channel if you like this kind of
Cheers from me and Stella.
Will it Run? Bonus: Live Sounds of Dead Cars
I had a request for some live engine sounds with no music...This is the
same Dodge 230 c.i. flat head 6 chassis running with 2 different bodies on
it. Actually runs pretty good, considering it's been sitting since the
60's, and is still running its original plugs, wires, cap, etc. Thanks for
checking it out.
Will it Run? Episode 2: 1951 Hudson Pacemaker
Hi! I pulled the old Hudson out of the barn to see if I could get it to go.
This car was probably last shut off about 35 years ago, and the engine was
pretty tight from sitting. I like these old step-down models, they are
quite sleek and low, and this should be a very nice car once I finally get
around to restoring it. Thanks for watching! This video has had the audio
track replaced due to some copyright issues; I apologize that the original
engine sounds have been lost. I'll try again next summer to get it going
for some live sounds...
Cold Start Challenge! Dec.'14
Hi! Time for some more cold start attempts on a cold day in Canada! This
time we're going to try the 1951 Mercury pickup, a 1950 Massey-Harris 44, a
1979 Ford F250, a 1965 Mustang, and even a 1966 Chevrolet
C30! Most of these rigs hadn't been run in months, so success was far from
certain... I was just hoping anything would start so I could go back inside
and warm up!
Thanks a lot to Agent 223 for sharing his cool collection with us!
Cheers from CWMC!

decals coming soon!
Will it Run? Episode 5: Trade-in Time for the 1966 Fury!
Time to make some room! This 1966 Plymouth Fury is finding a new home. It's
a former "Will it Run?" car, has it got one more run in it? The 225 slant
six / 904 automatic - powered Fury II 4-door sedan sat in a field since
1980, and after a little rehab, was running nicely, if a little blue.
Can't save'm all though, so off she goes...
Will it Run? Episode 8: 1971 Skiroule SS 300
This old Coleman has been sitting around a while, and needs some TLC to get
it going again. We have a matching pair of these babies, donated by
friends. I like the noise these 1 lungers make, and you don't see them
every day. This machine is pretty fun to ride as long as you don't do
anything stupid like trying to turn or stop. I guess I just like the smell
of blue Exhaust. mmmm...
