Dad Let Me Drive My Version.
For all children or truck driving parents. Watch for the shocker. This was
my typical summer vacation. Our Pop always let my brother and I drive. He
is a firm believer in learn by doing. Not my first time, I was 9 years old
in this grainy 1980's movie. All I could do to press the clutch and turn
the wheel. 1971 White Freightliner. 8V71 Detroit Diesel, 13 speed
Roadranger transmission. This was a real diesel truck. Non of this power
steering and comfort B.S. A mans rig. Nothing like the sound of a Detroit.
The engine noise is an actual recording of this tractor. I didnt grow up
to be a trucker, but I sure do miss the miles of heavy equipment hauling
adventures with my Pop.
Now we drive the Gray Ghost..Check out my other videos for that.
Stewart's Rod Shop Brothers Grudge Race 1
1967 Show down. 1967 Mercury Cougar Vs 1967 Volkswagen Beetle. Beetle is
slighty tweaked but still only 1584cc, The Cougar has a 289 V8. I had
taken a beating of trash talk for a few months from my older brother.
Needless to say the Top Cat is licking it's wounds. This was from the Steel
in Motion Event at Shadyside dragway.
Aftermath of a Drag Strip Crash (Shadyside Dragway)
This is the aftermath of a crash. The car had just stopped sliding when I
started recording. I was filming the drag race before this one right at
where this car hit the wall, so I'm glad I got out of the way in time.
This was at Shadyside drag strip in Shelby, NC.
The Original Fast Volkswagen Belt Change.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, DO NOT TRY THIS TECHNIQUE.....PERIOD!
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR COPY CATS AND INJURIES!
Dont be fooled by copies. This is my hands, in my shop, with my tool, with
my 67 car. I am the original fast belt changing VOLKSWAGNUT.
How to change a Volkswagen Generator belt in about 5 seconds. I was shown
this trick a few years back, by Reece Kelso. Kelso was the "VW" man around
the Gaston County N.C. area in the 70's. Kelso is gone but the memory is
still strong. Here is my go at it ENJOY.
Mercury Coupe 1951 The "Gray Ghost"
Picture video of my Pop's 1951 Mercury Coupe. Saved from the elements and
the crusher, it now enjoys the highway life again. Powered by a real Merc
Flathead slightly tuned, Isky cam'd, 3 on the tree, with overdrive, no
trailer queen. Its a hell of a car and a blast to drive not decorate.
Volksrod Operation X Corvair Powered Volkswagen Beetle
First run was a 10.06, this is Run #2 at the Fall 2012 German Invasion. The
Corvair fan belt flips halfway during the run, but I managed to hang on for
9.91. Run 3 in my other video poped off the fastest AIR COOLED run of the
day, but was disqualified due to non VW power, after a mid event rule
change. I guess I made them nervous. .
