Double Fatal Model A vs Nissan Titan - Graham WA
A sad story from May 7, 2005. The driver and passenger of the Model A were
killed when the driver of Titan failed to yeild when making a left turn.
The eldery couple was returning home from an antique car event. Several
other friends drove past the wreck in their own classic cars.
The driver died at the scene. The passenger, his wife died at the
hospital. Seats belts might have allowed for a different out come, but
were not installed in the Model A. Because of the age of the vehicle, seat
belts were not required.
I do not know if the driver of the Titan was later charged with anything.
1929 Ford Coupe Hot Rod ~ Running Day 1
So the first day off the trailer we took out the car and it died on us
leaving us stranded. Started troubleshooting with the builder and found
out it wasn't getting spark. Tracing wires we found that the ballast
resistor wire had been pulled out of the spade connector. Simple fix so
we're back up and running. More videos to come.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873,
Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen
(or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first
purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to
be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the
Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German
patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.
Ford Model T Half engine
I cut this T model Ford engine in half in 1957 using 11 hacksaw blades.
The only part not cut with the hacksaw was the camshaft as it was too hard
and had to ground through.
