Old Car Yard in Colorado
Pikes Peak Motor Company. A walk through their lot full of classic cars waiting to be bought. These have been good guys to deal with for me thru the years. Lots of cool stuff. My kind of people.
huge, massive, EPIC engine fail ! unbelievable damage
The by far most epic engine fail I've ever seen. The whole engine is almost completely destroyed and there won't be any chance to repair that piece of trash that it is after that. The destruction starts @ 0:46
Have fun !

Cable actuated dual carb linkage on Porsche 914 engine
I was unhappy with the hex-bar linkage on my 914's dual carb setup, so I made a cable actuated setup.

36hp VW engine with Judson supercharger + more in 1956 oval ragtop
I finally got everything installed in my 1956 ragtop. Engine has much more power than the tired 40hp that was removed. Deck lid closes without issue. Removable hinge pins are the best thing ever invented. Just waiting on 12V generator before painiting/powder coating everything. A sump and a 4-tip Abarth muffler would be nice too!
