85 Mercury Capri *BLOOPER* couldnt get it off the trailer

This was the first day for the new (in 2007) combination. The headers were Bassani step headers. I had built 12" long collector extensions for it. The car went on the trailer just fine, but the extensions acted like a check valve and would not let the car off the trailer. I had to pull back up and remove them to get the car off the trailer.

Cleaning Catalytic Converters With Soap and Water -EricTheCarGuy
This is my second attempt to clean a catalytic converter, this time with soap and water. I've heard this method can work so I thought I would give it a try. One that that's important with these techniques is to do the procedure properly. On both my first attempt with this one and my last attempt with lacquer thinner, I didn't do the procedure properly and as a result I was not successful. I speak to those points in the video. So, if you have a catalytic converter code and it's not all broken up inside, you might consider trying this technique. You really don't have anything to loose if you do. Related Videos.

Mercury Capri sales training video 1991 1992 1993 1994 Part 1
First half of product familiarization video for sales personnel for the newly-introduced 1991 Mercury Capri. Great background for Capri fans (I had a '94). Based on this video, you'd think the Capri would have sold much better! Judge the video from a 90s perspective, not today's. Ohhh, the 90s. So much color, so much hope, so much fun... :)

Redneck way of getting a totaled racecar off a trailer
Steve totaled the race car last weekend in an accident at the race track. He ended up rolling about 4 times with the car landing on its top. He has begun tearing the car apart so we can get the cage out to use in another car. We needed to get the car off of the trailer so we can tow our other race-car for now. We hooked a ratchet strap underneath the car, and the other end around the fire pit. Then a friend pulled the truck/trailer forward and the car slid off. It was quite humerus to watch!

Capri V8 Update and More Tire Abuse!
Hi! Just a short video to show some of the updates to Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri. He built a roller-cam 5.0 litre with aluminum heads and a little more cam to add to the fun. We also did the "RS" paint job to the hood and tops of the fenders and replaced the bent hood with a nice straight one. Lots of tuning and detail work has resulted in a super fun, reliable Capri that will destroy tires all day long.





85 Mercury Capri New Engine First Time Out (Stumble) 3rd run
First time out for new engine. Had a very bad stumble off the line. Found out later that my MSD 7AL2 was pulling 10 degrees of timing out between 3,000 and 4,000 RPM's. So I was leaving the line with only 24 degrees of timing!! No wonder the car was falling flat on it's face!! Despite dismal 60 foot times in the 1.80's, the car was still running 7.0's in the 1/8 mile at 97 MPH. That was short shifting at only 6,000 RPM's. My goal of 6.60's in the 1/8 with this new engine should be easily realized after it gets sorted out
