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 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...





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".
