Satan's Rat-Rod: 1931 Ford - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Henry Kessler The engine is out of a 1952 Diamond-Reo tractor and makes 1,640 lb-ft of torque. The chassis is pieced together from old light poles from the City of Hollywood. The body... that's from a 1931 Ford. Meet Gretchen, one of the coolest rat-rods we've ever seen and a ride that turns heads wherever it goes. This ain't no hybrid, instead it's a black smoke belching, gasoline guzzling, animal of a car that's not only amazing to look at, but with some cool hidden engineering, has the ability to surprise even the most hardened of motor-heads.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Harry Fisher In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice" car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well... above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the baddest hot-rods around.





Harley Earl - GM Designer Extraordinaire
Harley Earl, the larger than life, first head of styling for a major automobile manufacturer gave the world the joy of excess in color, chrome and steel. Recruited by GM in the late 20s to transform its drab autos and make them stand out from the offerings of its competitors, Earl transformed the industry and the American psyche. He invented the annual model change over, the concept car and put swagger and some Hollywood panache into a staid industry. While its hard to defend his buoyant designs as fine art, he captured the imagination of millions worldwide, especially in Post WWII America, who embraced the outlandish vehicles as proof that there will be a big and better tomorrow. He knew how to create and sell dreams. Which is what he learned from his neighbor, C. B. DeMille. S079





Classic Car Commercials - Style
Auto marketers are taught that their job is to, "sell the sizzle, not the steak." A lesson they learned all too well.

1952 Buick Starting Up
I start Betty, my 1952 Buick Straight Eight on a Sunday morning outside our house. She has a 4.3 litre engine and is right hand drive because she's originally from South Africa. She has been restored and we use her and her sister Wilma, a green and white '49 Buick as wedding and prom cars - check out www.bluemooncars.co.uk for more pics. We're in WInchester in the UK.

1955 Buick Century, the 'Banker's Hotrod'
A long time friend of the family, Fred, passed away last December. An earlier movie, one of the last time Fred drove the car, can be seen on this link, driving down the exact road a couple of years ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DyJgriURTU&feature=relmfu His passion was the restoration of old cars, two examples of which are the '72 Vista Cruiser and '80 Eagle featured on my channel in which he played a part of. This 1955 Buick Century, which Fred had since roughly 1967, was one of his pride and joys. Over the last few years I had the opportunity to take him for drives in the car, please see my channel for some of the drives. His wife is now allowing me to take the car out to exercise it, and we will get the car back in tune so she will be able to drive it safely once the stalling issue is dealt with, the gasoline is sour, and the carburetor was on it's way out when the car was put away last year, now it is really calling for attention, and the generator brushes or the regulator is sticking. Regardless, this old gem took Glenn, Josh and myself for a ride back to a more simple time on the hottest 4th of July on record in the area. The car will be getting a massive cleaning and polishing, and movies showing the engine will be coming soon. The statistics on the car are:322 cubic inch V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor, Dynaflow automatic, powers steering, Tredel-Vac (spelling?) power brakes, radio with front and rear speaker. This was just about the first year for a 4-door hardtop mass produced vehicle. A really nice look with all the windows down, and despite being a mostly black car on a hot day, it was not uncomfortable to drive, a nice thing about the old cars it seems. Normally one leaves the Dynaflow in 'Drive', the 5-element torque converter doing the seamless shifting, but because the car was stalling out, or really trying to, I started out in low many times as the more sharp eyed will notice. This allowed the engine to spin up faster, getting over that hump which I suspect may be the metering rods being sticky, etc. These Buick vehicles of the era were known as 'Banker's Hotrods' for the fact they were very stately vehicles and the demographics which usually purchased them, but when pushed, could easily do 0-60 in 10 seconds, and well over 100 miles per hour, pretty neat for a big car back in the day. The name 'Century' is derived from a term some engineers from General Motors heard being said in England in the 1930's when car enthusiasts on that side of the pond were making reference to breaking the 100 mile per hour mark. Note that the California Highway Patrol used these cars back in the day for their speed and agility. Only the Cadillacs, Oldsmobiles and Lincolns along with the new small-block Chevrolets/Corvettes could give the Buicks a good run for the money back then.
