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.

The 1st of March 2007.
World ice speed record - Fastest Car on Ice.
Oulu, Finland -- A Bentley Continental GT, driven by four-times World Rally
Champion Juha Kankkunen, smashed the world ice speed record, reaching an
average speed of 321.65km/h on frozen sea off the coast of Finland, track
ploughed on the ice of the Gulf of Bothnia next to the city of Oulu.
Juha turned the Continental GT around and drove the measured kilometre a
second time to fulfil the judge's requirements, peaking at an incredible
331km/h (206mph).For safety reasons, a rollcage was fitted. Various
aerodynamic tweaks were also made by Makela Auto Tuning.
MAT-Team's record-breaking achievement shows that the spirit of the famous
Bentley Boys lives on and is still harnessed by drivers with sufficient
skill and courage.
The World's fastest car on ice event

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.
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.

The Ford Model A as a Daily Driver for a Year
Jonathan Klinger's coworkers thought he was bluffing when he said he wanted
to drive a Ford Model A every day for a year -- including winter ... in
northern Michigan. But he followed through, and he's been doing it in a
project he calls "365 Days of A," documenting his progress on a blog of the
same name. RoundAbout host Craig Cole went for a walkaround of the Model A
that Jonathan's been driving for nearly a year.
