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!





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 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...





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...
