1929 Ford Coupe Hot Rod ~ Running Day 1
So the first day off the trailer we took out the car and it died on us leaving us stranded. Started troubleshooting with the builder and found out it wasn't getting spark. Tracing wires we found that the ballast resistor wire had been pulled out of the spade connector. Simple fix so we're back up and running. More videos to come.
Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Axle-hop Stop!
Met up with Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org and did a little bit of filming near Lake Lewisville. Thought I'd throw in the axle-hop stop that you see at the beginning of MM2: The Road Warrior. He doesn't throw it into reverse, as many erroneously believe. It's this type of stop I demonstrate here.
1960 Peterbilt Hotrod Truck called Piss'd Off Pete
While I was at SEMA 2009 a captured a video of Piss'd Off Pete's engine being revved up in front of a huge SEMA crowd just down from the Autogeek.net booth.
This is Jay Leno's 1960 chopped Peterbilt with a 852ci two-stroke Detroit Diesel twin-supercharged V12 mated to an Allison 4-speed automatic transmission from a Greyhound bus. The engine produces 500 horsepower and nearly 1000 lb-ft torque with a red line of just 2,800 rpm. Built by the Blastolene Brothers.

Camel Trophy 1996 - Kalimantan
Although the "special tasks" were introduced at the beginning of the decade, some would argue that the 1996 event was the last "traditional" Camel Trophy. Starting at Balikpapan on the east coast of Kalimantan, the route wound its way through the very heart of Borneo to the finish approximately 100km north of Pontianac on the west coast. From the Dusit Inn Hotel, teams made there way to the first set of special tasks via a barge crossing of the Balikpapan River and then on into serious jungle and mountain terrain.
Many of the tracks and trails in the interior had not seen any form of motorised transport for more than a decade and were in diabolical condition. Just the job for Camel Trophy.
From the task site the route swung in a large loop first north, then east towards Muaratewe, where heavy rains had turned much of the countryside into swamp. The teams battled for days through seemingly impossible conditions, heading for the small river port and crossing site at Tumbang Samba. However this was not to be. Conditions became so bad and progress so slow that, in order to have any hope of making the finish on time, a detour was found bypassing some of the most treacherous sections.
The convoy moved on, at last able to make a reasonable mileage per day but still behind schedule. Days turned into 24- hour marathons, each with its own set of problems to be overcome. Eventually, after missing out a planned section in the extreme south west of the island, the weary crews arrived at the last special task site on the coast near Singkawang. A day and a half of special tasks followed before the teams headed in convoy for the final award ceremony held later that evening in the principle hotel in Pontianac
This was the last Camel Trophy to adhere to the traditional formula of teams undertaking the route as a convoy. Like its predecessors it will be remembered for the camaraderie and team spirit generated amongst the crews as they worked together to overcome the odds. Once this concept was lost, critics say the event never truly regained its magical qualities, to say nothing of its toughness, character and reputation as the "Ultimate Adventure".
