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.

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... :)





Carburetor Rebuild Basics (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Carburetor Rebuild Basics covers the basics of rebuilding a carburetor. Now there are a LOT of different carburetors out there so this video won't apply to all of them, but it will give you a general idea of what you would be in for if you decided to rebuild one. Me, I like rebuilding carburetors. There's something about mechanical things like carburetors that interest me. How even the smallest part has a big effect on the overall operation of your engine. Since we've gone to fuel injection carburetors have become somewhat obsolete. I'm still a fan though. I may be a little rusty on this stuff since I haven't done this in some time but I hope this video helps you just the same. If nothing else, I hope you're entertained by it.

How to not load a Z onto a trailer
What appears to be a V8 Powered 280zx being loaded onto the trailer.. the wrong way.. Just to make this clear, I did not record this video. I found it years ago someplace that I don't remember.





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!

Zakspeed Ford Turbo Capri
Zakspeed Ford turbo Capri beim AvD Oldtimer GP 2012 auf dem Nürburgring. Peter Zakowski fährt das Original Meisterschaftsauto von 1981, mit dem Klaus Ludwig damals gewann. Das Fahrzeug ist mit dem kleinen Motor der Division 2 bestückt mit 1,4l Hubraum. In beiden Rennen sah Zakowski die Zielflagge wegen technischer Probleme nicht. Im Rennen 1 bedrängt er Oliver Mathai im Porsche 935 und im Rennen 2 räumt er binnen kürzester Zeit das Feld von hinten auf. Sowohl nach dem Training als auch nach dem ersten Rennen wurde am Fahrzeug umfangreich gearbeitet. Der Ladedruck ist noch nicht eingestellt und deshalb hat P.Zakowski die Hand häufiger mal am "Dampfrad". Vom turbo Capri wurden insgesamt fünf Fahrzeuge gebaut. Ein Fahrzeug wurde zerstört, eines zu einem Mustang umgebaut, ein Fahrzeug wurde von Herbert Stenger bei Bergrennen eingesetzt, ein Fahrzeug baut Stefan Mücke in Berlin wieder auf und hier eben das 1981er Meisterschaftsauto bei Zakspeed. onboard race1 at 05:35 onboard race 2 at 12:14
