My Grandpa's Model A Ford in March 2009
This was an old video that my grandpa and I decided to shoot while the model A was in the midst of being restored. As you can see, he did the majority of the work with the occasional help of a friend and auto body specialist as well as his brother-in-law (I was interested more in model cars and filmmaking at the time instead of mechanics, so I did not participate.) I edited this video originally in March 2009 for my old youtube channel lobsterbox22, but since I have a brief video of it starting and driving I figured that it would be suitable to upload this old footage to give people some background on how such a beautiful car turned out. A little background of the 1928/1929 Ford Model A Special Coupé: It basically came about when Henry Ford and his team redesigned the Model A for the 1929 production year; instead of storing the remaining 1928 parts as new old stock, they decided to use the remaining 1928 parts in the production of a "special" Model A. It stood out mainly because of the vinyl hard top, which was a lot like that found on the Model A Sport Coupés of the era except it had smaller, rounded windows in the back where there normally would have been only vinyl. These Special Coupés didn't sell very well, mainly because of the fact that they were put together with mixed parts and were produced in low numbers. During the restoration, my grandfather learned about this, and discovered that the left and right fenders were of different design (LF was a '29 and RF was a '28.) During the restoration, he needed to purchase a new left front fender, and he opted to purchase the 1929 instead of a 1928 fender to match the original factory configuration. When I asked him about this, he told me: "Originality is more important than symmetry."

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps the definition of the modern day hypercar. Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past 15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.

Moyock Muscle
A most unusual car place with an impressive collection of classic "field" cars. Moyock Muscle provided me with an interesting experience since I love looking at this stuff. Should you find yourself heading from Virginia Beach down the the Outer Banks, and you are a car guy (or girl) just keep a lookout on the left once you pass the Border Station. I think all and everything is for sale and they also do restorations according to their sign.
