UPDATES for the month of July:
Please note, that I am taking my pharmacist licensure exams this month,
which is why I haven't been uploading as regularly as I have been. I've
been studying and prepping majority of the time. Also, I will be getting
married July 27th, which is fast approaching! Honeymoon is the first week
of August. Therefore, while I'll still be uploading before the wedding, it
will be sporadic (not on a set day and time), depending on what free time I
am able to get. Continue to enjoy and be sure to check out any other
videos you may have missed! More updates soon, follow me on Twitter @
Saabkyle04LLC and facebook (link on the channel) to stay in the know!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in-depth
look at this true time capsule into the late 1970s, the 1979 Ford Ranchero
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

Oh My Garage! 1963 Falcon Ranchero Rusty "Restoration" (OMG)
I found a 1963 Ranchero with a factory 260 v8 and we're pulling him apart
to repair the rusted out floor and anything else that needs to happen.
Going to put him back together with a 289 and 4 speed overdrive
transmission. Stay tuned this is going to be a long series. I have to
finish it too. It's going to be my daily driver.
