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!





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!





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 subscribing!





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 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...

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 for watching!





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...





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.





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.

V8 Aerostar ( 5.0 HO )
Ford should have made a V8 Aerostar. I got 5 mpg better than the 2.8L V6 5-spd, it sounds better, and its more fun to drive (power). Sitting 1 ½ inches lower with large swaybars made it handle like a car. I've had A LOT of fun with this van, now it's time for a change. If you ever get a chance to be part of the Hot Rod Power Tour I highly recommend it. It doesnt matter if you do the long haul or just one venue, you wont regret it or forget it!!!





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...





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! Please subscribe if you like this kind of thing! T-shirts and dealership decals coming soon!





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 everyday. 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.
