Riverside Restorations, Manotick ON, mid 2008. Due to all my moves, the house fire etc. I lost track of this video nugget. Enjoy the hi tech frame straightening machine and automotive chiropractic science at its best. The car X's out perfectly now (believe it or not) and the final moments of the vid show the Runner as it is today.
The Rail Saver - Auto Body Frame Repair Tool
The Rail Saver is an advanced tool for auto body frame repair that enables
never before attainable repairs to auto body frame rails and side members.
The ingenious design of the Rail Saver allows the tool to reach deep inside
the frame rail and straightens from the inside out. Never before reachable
damage is now easily accomplished enabling technicians to achieve quality
repairs instead of replacing frame rails. Learn More at:

1963 Dodge 880 Chryslers at Carlisle
A rare and very fine example (and a big block car too) but let's face it:

found a new owner who loves it.
1963 Dodge 330 Chryslers at Carlisle
In the car corral sat more than a few pretties and I tried to buy this one
only to find that the owner...was so indifferent and lazy he spent little
time there on the weekend and even disappeared Sunday, leaving the car
alone! It all turned out for the best as I called someone else late August
(!) and bought my '72 Coronet Custom instead. I had rated it (the Coronet)
as my #2 candidate but sober reflection intervened and it, as a V8 power
disc brake power steering a/c car won out. This '63 is pretty but I made
the right decision thanks to the seller's strange approach. He took the car
home. I guess...
