2014 Corvette C7 : Walkaround : Tadge Juechter Chevrolet Chief Engineer

http://MPGomatic.com takes you on a walkaround of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with Tadge Juechter at the New York City premiere event. Tadge is the Chief Engineer/Vehicle Line Director - Corvette at General Motors. The Corvette first premiered in New York at the GM Motorama Show sixty years ago. This historic event featured pristine representatives of each of the previous six generations of the Corvette, including the very same car that was shown in NYC decades ago. The C7 Corvette Stingray was first shown at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, just prior to this event. The red 2014 Corvette shown in this video was shipped to Scottsdale, Arizona immediately after this event to be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auction. It sold for $1.1 Million to Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. Parts of the audio in this video are a tad noisy. There were photographers and journalists crawling all over the car while we were shooting. Why they couldn't make the tiny effort to close the driver's door and stop all that dinging is anybody's guess. Keep your ears out as one guy SLAMS the door on this $1.1 million dollar pre-production car. Shooting this video was one of the coolest little opportunities that's come my way in this MPGomatic adventure. Many thanks to General Motors for the invitation, to Tadge for his time, and to you for watching. Having the opportunity to create videos with top automotive engineers and race car drivers just might be the best part of this gig. This piece was shot (handheld, for the most part) with a Canon XH A1s, using a Rode directional mic.

Install a Cheap eBay Front Lip or D-I-Y Air Dam? - Honda Civic Build - Ain't Fuelin'
We install a cheap front bumper lip on Slambo in this behind-the-scenes episode of Ain't Fuelin/The Beater Build Show. eBay and Amazon are chock full of inexpensive bumper lips. They're fast and easy to install, but are they the best way to go? eBay / Amazon Lips aren't the only game in town. You can fabricate a custom front air dam with inexpensive materials. And with a little luck, it might even have beneficial aerodynamic properties. If you've never used a pop rivet gun and 3M VHB tape, a world of cheap aero goofiness awaits … =)





Elastiwrap - Slambo Gets Dipped (part 1) - Ain't Fuelin' Honda Civic Build
We spray Slambo with Eastwood's Elastiwrap in this behind-the-scenes episode of Ain't Fuelin. Color Change for $125? Yow! This is the first part of our adventure in dip and was intended to be a base coat. Got an idea for a wicked cool top coat color? Let us know in the comments! Elastiwrap is Eastwood's alternative to Plastidip. I chose Elastiwrap over Plastidip for two primary reasons: 1) It's lighter than Plastidip and requires less coats 2) The Eastwood company store is an easy round trip from Rancho Indebto. If you want to change the color of your car, but don't have much money to spend, these elastic coatings are a hoot. They're relatively quick and easy to spray. You don't need expensive equipment, a spray booth, or extensive prep. It's great for hiding all kinds of flaws. We're looking for ideas for a top coat color.
