Heavy Metal Tow Truck [S7 Ep. 2-1]
Today on GEARZ, project Heavy Metal is back as Stacey rolls the old
International cab over truck into the shop so he can outfit it with a
vintage Holmes dual wrecker bed. It is auto recycling at its best as the
big truck continues to come together using parts from a junkyard wrecker,
swap meet vintage beer kegs, and even some new aftermarket parts. If you've
always thought that you had to spend big money to build a unique vehicle,
this "Heavy Metal" truck will not only change your mind, but probably have
you digging through old junkyards and checking out pastures in hopes of
finding a vintage truck project of your own! That's a typical
reaction...and that's typical for GEARZ!
There's A Right Way...And Then There's This Way
*WATCH IN HD* Bad decision? Yes. Lucky? HELL YES! Lucky they only lost
a fuel tank and some straps instead of the whole truck. Had the truck not
gotten hung-up on it's tank, it would've continued right on over the edge
of the trailer and been wrecked. Also lucky the tank was almost empty and
diesel fuel is hard to ignite, for if it had, it would've consumed both the
truck and half the trailer. This 1971 White/Freightliner will live to race
another day. Shot at Truckin' For Kids in Irwindale, California on Sunday
October 6th, 2013. To see what led up to this, checkout my other video --

Cold Start on a 1959 Mack B61T
ALMOST 100,000 VIEWS!!!!! THANKS SO MUCH!
This is a Cold Start on a 1959 mack b61T. It was sitting about 2 years in a
trailer lot and was bought by a used car company and was then sold to me.
it took 2 days to get her running. Unfortunately i didnt get a video of the
first start in 2 years because it was raining... but she runs like a champ
Stay tuned for more videos of the restoration and updates! Subscribe...
Special Thanks to Casey K (v12detroit) for helping me change all the fluids
and run all new battery cables from the starter to the batteries! thanks
Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt?
Took 45 years to bury this Volkswagen and almost 2 days to dig it out.
Have a look. Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single
cab in the foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of
digging condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash
since 1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust
free given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day
for 45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE
GIVE US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have
one you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters.
Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have
received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise
forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960
VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965.
We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up
a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a
tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us
a call today if you know of one. Thanks again. Skeeters (208)200-6053

Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.

Leopard 2 tank vs max weight sled
After a easy full pull earlier that day, the 60 ton Leopard 2 tank was
challenged to pull the max weight of the sled, all 21 tonnes of it!
The 48 liter, V12 turbodiesel engine
producing 1500hp and 4700nm had no problem with it.
Listen to the sheer power of that engine!
8V53T Detroit Diesel first start
Detroit Diesel 8V53T, (turbo just
removed for test run) this is literally the first starting attempt after
bringing it home, it had sat for years. Not so many 8V53 Detroits were
made, and very few turbocharged ones,
This is one of about four I know of.
