Stewart's Rod Shop Brothers Grudge Race 1 The Finish

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.
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.
