1965 Chevy Impala SS NASCAR Grand National Stock Car - 1st engine start
This is the first engine start of this Roy Mayne 1965 Chevy Impala SS in over 40+ years. The engine is a Chevy Big Block 427 (396 .60 over) 60s era NASCAR spec motor. This is the real deal. This car raced from 1965 - 1967 in the NASCAR Grand National Stock Car series on such famous tracks as Daytona and Darlington. Roy's best finish was at Darlington in 1965 when he finish 4th in this car.
This car is being restored in under 30 days to compete in this years 2010 Monterey Sports Car Reunion (aka Monterey Historics) at Laguna Seca Raceway
note the flickering you see on the dash is due to a bad ground, something we fixed after I took the video

Oct 30, 2011 HSCRS (Historic Stock Car Racing Series) Morning practice in
my 1965 Impala SS NASCAR with my Mom in the right seat enjoying every
minute of it (legs crossed just enjoying the ride!). Amazing what 40 years
of stock car development will do including lots of point bys but hell of a
lot of fun running with the newer cars!

First Engine Start FW190
FW190A-8 Werknummer 173056 quickly roared to life Sept. 21, 2009 after 8
1/2 years of restoration work on the four major components of 173056: Tail,
fuselage, wings and engine. Located at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport at PAI
Aero, this restoration is a project of Don and Linda Hansens engineering
company. The engine was started but shut down quickly as a precaution due
to lack of oil pressure indication - found later to be an incorrect
pressure sender. Major Frank Hohmann from Flug-Werk in Gammelsdorf, Germany
worked intently for most of September, as did Don Hansen and crew Rusty
Gautreaux, Danny Trogé and Stephen Hansen to complete engine rigging. This
de-preservation/pre-oiling run was a smoky success, with the 2000HP Ash82T
engine starting instantly on the first try after 30 years in storage. The
first flight is planned for Summer, 2010.
