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 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 6: 1958 Plymouth Savoy
Time to get the 58 Plymouth Savoy up and running! I put it on a good frame
and changed it to a standard shift. Still a long way to go, but a huge
improvement on the piece of junk I brought home last winter. It's now a 230
c.i. flathead 6 with a 3-on-the-tree. Hope you like it like I do! Thanks
for checking it out!
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.
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.
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!

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".
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...
