Customized Cars from the Past
Check out my web site "Rides": https://sites.google.com/site/myvetts/home For more videos of "Low Riders":https://sites.google.com/site/slammedbelow/ A development of hot rodding, the change in name corresponded to the change in the design of the cars being modified. The first hot rods were pre-World War II cars, with running boards and simple fenders over the wheels. Early model cars (1929 to 1934) were modified by removing the running boards and either removing the fenders entirely or replacing them with very light "cycle fenders". Later models usually had "fender skirts" installed on the rear fenders. Many cars were "hopped up" with engine modifications such as adding additional carburetors, high compression heads and dual Exhausts. "Engine swaps" were done, the object of which was to put the most powerful engine in the lightest possible frame and body combination. The suspension was usually altered. Initially this involved lowering the rear end as much as possible with the use of "lowering blocks" on the rear springs. Later cars were given a "rake job" either adding a "dropped" front axle or heating front coil springs to make the front end of the car much lower than the rear. Much later some hot rods and custom cars swapped the old solid rear axle for an independent rear axle, often from Jaguar. Only rarely was the grille of one make of car replaced by another; one exception was the 1937 Buick grille, often used on a Ford. (In the 1950s and 1960s, the grille swap of choice was the 1953 De Soto.) The original hot rods were plainly painted like the Model A Fords from which they had been built up, and only slowly begun to take on colors, and eventually fancy orange-yellow flamed hoods or "candy-like" deep acrylic finishes in the various colors. With the change in automobile design to encase the wheels in fenders and to extend the hood to the full width of the car, the former practices were no longer possible. In addition, there was tremendous automotive advertising and subsequent public interest in the new models in the 1950s. Hence custom cars came into existence, swapping headlamp rings, grilles, bumpers, chrome side strips, and tail lights, as well as "frenching" and "tunnelling" head- and taillights. The bodies of the cars were changed by cutting through the sheet metal, removing bits to make the car lower, welding it back together, and adding a lot of lead to make the resulting form smooth (hence the term "lead sled"; lead has been replaced by Bondo). By this means, "chopping" made the roof lower; "sectioning" made the body thinner from top to bottom. "Channeling" was cutting notches in the floorpan where the body touches the frame to lower the whole body. Fins were often added from other cars, or made up from sheet steel. In the custom car culture, someone who merely changed the appearance without also substantially improving the performance was looked down upon.

Elvis Presley and His Cars: A True Story about His Favorite Cadillac
Elvis Presley loved cars--take a look inside his (truly) favorite Cadillac! This is the story about Elvis Presley's 1972 Custom Cadillac Station Wagon and why Elvis loved it! (Note: This car has since been SOLD -- it is no longer for sale, but please enjoy the video!) A PERSONAL NOTE: (added in March 2012) [See more details below] I created this video as a tribute to Elvis Presley, one of my favorite philanthropists of all time. Revisiting it now, two years and 16,792 views later, I'm excited to say I still receive calls from this video today, even though the car sold long ago -- a testimony to the amazing power of YouTube videos! I'm also increasingly amazed at the power of creating and watching my own PERSONAL visualization videos (posted elsewhere on this channel). They've been almost magically effective in helping me clarify my vision, increase my passion & focus, and form the strategic partnerships necessary to fulfill my dream of making a huge positive difference in the world. To take this a step further, I've recently created a virtual community called the "Friends of Virgin Unite" group on Linkedin.com in support of Virgin Unite, my #1 favorite charitable foundation. If you share my passion to make a huge positive difference, I invite you to join us today! Create a Linkedin profile, then follow this link to join our group: http://www.linkedin.com/groups?about=&gid=4322881 See you there! (And please mention you learned about us on YouTube!) =====================================================





American Big Block Luxury Sedans, 1963-1970
These were the best sedans money could buy back when you could get serious luxury from the Big Three. Lincoln Continentals were equipped with the 430 Super Marauder V8 {a MEL engine also used in Mercurys, hence the Marauder name} in the early 60s, which eventually yielded to the 462 MEL V8 {the biggest engine in the family, basically an enlarged 430.} Finally, the 385-series 460 V8 was used starting in 1968, and this motor was used in Continentals until 1978. Chrysler Imperials used a high-performance 413 RB V8 until 1965, when the big 440 TNT motors were used. The 440 was used well into the 70s. Cadillac Fleetwoods were at first equipped with 390 V8s, which were upsized to 429s in 1964. Following the 429, a massive 472 V8 was introduced which provided more torque than any muscle car engine of the day and had massive 4 inch bore and stroke diameters. Finally, the largest production engine offered at the time, a massive 8.2 liter {500ci} V8 was used from 1970 on. This engine produced a healthy 400 horsepower and 550 lb. ft. of torque, all available at RPMs no higher than 3000. These engines signaled that the excess of the 70s was coming, and of course style began to suffer. Clean uncluttered cars were replaced with acres of chrome and ugly front end treatments. These were the last of a line of cars that started in the 50s, big flashy cars with clean styling and enourmous engines.

Stutz Blackhawk 1973
Stutz est une marque automobile Américaine qui a été fondée en 1912 par Harry C. Stutz et qui a produit des voitures jusqu'en 1935. En aout 1968, un financier New Yorkais, James O'Donnell, ressuscite la marque, il confie le design d'un projet de voiture néo rétro à Virgil Exner, un styliste réputé du Groupe Chrysler. Un prototype réalisé par Ghia et donc présenté en 1970 à l'Hôtel Waldorf Astoria de New York. C'est le début de l'histoire de la Stutz Blackhawk qui sera produite de 1972 à 1987. La Stutz Blackhawk est une voiture très spéciale : c'était la voiture la plus chère du monde en son temps ! Elle coûtait 43 000 $ en 1973, pour comparer, une Cadillac Eldorado 1973 très luxueuse coûtait environ 8 000 $. En quinze ans de production, la Stutz Blackhawk a été construite à 617 exemplaires seulement, tout modèles confondus. Le prix de la Stutz Blackhawk était très élevé car elle était totalement exclusive et très luxueuse pour son époque : sellerie cuir, climatisation, siège et vitre électrique, placage de bois précieux, métaux intérieurs en plaqué or ... La Stutz Blackhawk était assemblé à la main à Turin en Italie sur un châssis de Pontiac Grand Prix, elle était motorisé par un V8 General Motors de 7,5 litres de cylindrée préparé à 425 chevaux. Le prix astronomique de la Stutz Blackhawk la réservait à une clientèle plus que fortunée, parmi les propriétaires célèbres, on citera Elvis Presley, qui en possédait quatre, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Al Pacino, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Billy Joel, Mohammed Ali, Isaac Hayes, Wayne Newton, Curd Jürgens, le Shah d'Iran qui en possède douze, le Roi Fahd d'Arabie Saoudite, le Roi Hussein du Maroc.
