70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
How to Start a Yamaha after it's been left for years in the garden
Here we have a 1985 Yamaha FZ750. It is the very rare 2GH model as ridden
by Eddie Lawson in the 1986 Daytona 200 to victory with full livery by Troy
Lee Designs. Sadly it has been left for years outside in a garden with the
sea air/rain on it with nothing but a sheet over it. I have removed the
petrol tank to access the fuel supply and have repaired some of the faulty
wiring which probably was the cause of this superbikes demise. I am now
going to completely strip the bike down and restore her to her former
while I welcome constructive comments, I will not tolerate foul language,
swear words and any racist or other comments which may be deemed offensive
to some people
If you make any such comments that comment will be removed and you will be
reported to YouTube my channel is viewed by young and old alike, please
bear this in mind.
Kind Regards, John OHanlon.
Cars that should be driven
They're all long gone. Pretty shame they didn't get the attention they
Name of the song is Bruce Springsteen & the E-street band - Racing in the
(I do not own any rights)
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.

65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.
