Will it Run? Episode Nine: 1962 Plymouth Belvedere
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this horrible 1962 Plymouth; can we get it to move again? It had been completely disassembled and left outside for many years. The engine is seized, and the budget for repairs is zero, as usual. Some unique problems, with it being a push button automatic, and trying to jam in a later- model engine...
Its a bit longer than my other vids, I hope you like it! No more music, as per viewer requests.

Found in a Field: 1958 Dodge Mayfair Hardtop!
Cold War Motors just dragged this sweet 1958 Dodge home from out in the country where it had been lying abandoned for many years. It is a very rare piece, with only about 3000 ever made, including all body styles. These Canadian "Plodges" used Plymouth bodies and interiors with Dodge front ends and were manufactured in Canada through 1959. The Mayfair is the top-of-the-line model, and is the equivalent to the Plymouth Belvedere. This one has a 313 Poly-head V8 and power steering. Cold War Motors is going to restore this car as soon as a couple of other projects are finished.
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!
1952 Hudson Saved from the Crusher!
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this sweet old Hudson Pacemaker to stop it from being turned into more Camrys. Its not exactly mint, but I just love the patina on this original paint car. Maybe we'll try to get it roadworthy and just drive it the way it is. It'll need the interior redone, and the engine is gone, but its fairly solid and complete. I hope you like it!

Redneck Car Show! Sept 2011
Hi! My friend Agent 1080 hosted the second annual Redneck Car Show at the Lean Burn Technologies compound. A great opportunity to show off all of our beaters and rusty yard decorations! Lots of shabby Mopars, as usual, and a few others as well. This year, the coveted "Western Canada's Worst Car" trophy went to Agent 1080 for his nasty 1980 Dodge Aspen. Cold War Motors was well represented at the show, and brought a surprise entry...
1957 Dodge Regent Hardtop Coupe
Hi! Cold War Motors just picked up this sweet 1957 Dodge Regent coupe. Its pretty rough, to say the very least, but I have most of the parts to restore it, if I want to. I more or less bought it to get the door I need for my 58 Plymouth, but I think it could be saved, with enough time and money thrown at it. Theres no drivetrain in it, but it looks like it was a six cylinder, 2 speed auto originally. Anyways, I thought some of you might dig it, as these are pretty rare units...
Test Drive the 1974 Ford Capri V8!
Hi! This is Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri, featuring a high-output 302 V8 and Borg-Warner T5 transmission hooked to a Ford 9 inch positraction rear. This car originally had the wheezy Pinto 2000 cc engine and 4 speed trans, so it is much better now. A nice, original, rust-free unit brought up from the States to save it from the idiotic "cash for clunkers" stupidity. Sweet vintage aluminum slot mags, nerf bars, and diamond-tuft package tray finish this Capri off in classic 70's style! Hope you like it as much as I do!
57 Tulsa buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Boyd Coddington
Tulsa Story :This is a video pictorial of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that was buried in
Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 15, 1957 as a time capsule. It was uncovered 50
years later on June 15, 2007.
I was hoping to see a pristine version of "Miss Belvedere", but as it turned
out, the vault leaked and filled with water, causing much damage to the
automobile. As a car enthusiast, I watched the story develop over the past
few years. I waited and watched it live online as she was extracted from
the ground. When I saw the rust-colored dirt and muck on her, I had a bad
feeling about her condition.
I wish the person who won this car (by guessing the closest to the town's
actual 2007 population back in 1957) could have it restored, but that would
be a massive undertaking. On the other hand, she should get a chance to
I hope you enjoy the video, along with some before, during, and after

Miss Belvedere Moves On
By Old Cars Weekly
After spending nearly 50 years quietly rusting beneath the Tulsa County Courthouse lawn, the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere affectionately known as "Miss Belvedere," is on the road once again.
Don't get too excited, when she rolled out of Tulsa earlier today, it wasn't under her own power—she was whisked out of town in the back of a truck.
After months of legal wrangling to establish ownership of what is clearly the most famous "finned" Mopar in the world (yes, even more famous than Stephen King's "infamous" Christine), Miss Belvedere has begun her journey to New Jersey — and possibly a rust-free future.
Levada Humbertson Carney and Catherine Humbertson Johnson, elderly sisters from Maryland, will officially take possession of the Belvedere as beneficiaries of their brother Raymond Humbertson who won the car as part of a contest held back in 1957.
Buried with the car was a time capsule containing people's guesses as to what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. Included among the hundreds of guesses, was one made by Raymond Humbertson of Cumberland, Md., who died in 1979. His guess was only 2,286 off the actual census numbers, closer than any other entry.
Assisting the cars elderly owners will be Levada Carney's son Robert Carney and Dwight Foster, President of the UltraOne Corporation.
As you will recall, as part of this ongoing saga, New Jersey-based UltraOne, manufacturer of a line of rust removal products, will now begin the pain-staking process of de-rusting and preserving what remains of the rusty relic.
According to Robert Carney, the car, which suffers from extensive damage after being submerged in conditions described as a "watery grave" for an unknown number of years, may eventually be able to take to the road under her own power.
Once Miss Belvedere arrives in New Jersey she will undergo a lengthy cleansing and rust removal process that her new owners and the folks at UltraOne hope will stabilize the car before sealing it with a clear-coat designed to halt the rusting process.
"We will not be restoring the car but preserving her for the future," Mr. Foster told the Tulsa World. "We have to stop the rust, because if nothing is done, this car will be dust in two years."
According to the UltraOne Web site, future plans for Miss Belvedere could include a second Tulsa unveiling and a tour around the country for special events. Following the tour, the car's future remains unclear.
However, it has speculated that the car could find her way to the Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale in the coming years.
we will miss you the legend Boyd Coddington,
