Resurrecting a Classic Chevy
This is my 1968 Chevy Caprice. It was the very first car I ever worked on as a Student of Auto Body way back 20 years ago. Since then the car has lapsed into obscurity after the transmission went all kerflooey and sat under a cedar tree for 16 years. The needles destroyed the paint, the vinyl top was not replaced when the car was originally fixed, and the interior was ruined when the top gave way. The car had about $3,000 put into the engine (a 327 ci 275 hp engine that is original to the car) and the car overall has about 87,000 original miles. As I stated, the car has sat for the last 16 years and we dragged it to its current location, put a battery in it, and after some tinkering, it started right up. It has a whole tank of $.99 gas in it and it runs smoothly. The peck you hear in the video is an Exhaust leak. If you have any questions, drop me an e-mail.

Custom Cars - Documentary
Custom Cars - Documentary For most of us, cars are an ordinary fixture of daily life. But then there are custom cars--literal labors of love. Supercharged hot rods, sublimely sculpted classics, flashy tricked-out lowriders, neon-bright "import tuners"--an eye-popping blend of fine art and mechanical know-how. In this episode, we trace the history, technology, and cultural connections between successive generations who have turned the common car into an American art form. We'll ride with hot rodders and lowriders and visit the speed shops and paint shops where ordinary cars become art.
