1955 Buick Century 322 Nail head First Start & Cam Break-in
This is the first start and cam break-in of my rebuilt 55 Buick Century 322
nail-head. The NOS fuel pump lasted about 2 minutes. The box fan I was
using to cool the engine was not giving enough airflow. I had to use the
industrial fan I use for painting. The carburetor that I rebuilt about 5
years ago has some idle jets plugged up. (I must not have gotten all the
gas out of it when I put it in storage) On the plus side, no oil/water
leaks and good oil pressure.

Hauling Hay with 1926 Ford Model TT 1 Ton Truck
Bringing in the hay with my 1926 Ford TT 1 ton truck. The truck has a New
Zealand 'Colonial' built cab and deck.
What use is a vintage truck if you can't use it?

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by
Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History
Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into
the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar
Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom
fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the
bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of
another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their
invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men,
William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building
business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant
realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with
Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were
regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks
through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the
compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for
the largest company in the world."
