1909 Cadillac First Drive First Start in 79 Years
This is a follow up to the earlier 1909 Cadillac first start. Bob took his
first drive in his 1909 Cadillac Model 30 touring September 1, 2013. He has
owned this car for and been working on the restoration on and off for 46
years. The last time this Cadillac drive under its own power was in 1933,
80 years ago.
There are still some bugs to work out, but it moves!.
Update, this is the first actual drive for Bob's Cadillac. For the original
first start of the engine see the other video at

semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel vacuum-assisted mechanical drum

At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick
glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it
gets more and more curious.
The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number
356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21,
1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front
compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with
six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear
compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation
about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to
The online Cadillac Data Base, a meticulous compilation by historian Yann
Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just
seven in 1935, exclusive of those given suffixes as sedans, formal
limousines or limousines with increased headroom. The bodies were the same
as the flat-windshield limousine Style 6075, whose Fisher body tags they

57 CHEVY UNCOVERED 35 YEAR HIBERNATION
After many requests to look at the Old Chevy I finally cleared out around
it with the help of Lil Racer so we could take a look at it and make a
video of it.
Barn finding a 1917 Chevrolet V8 and Classic Wooden Boat
Corky Coker found this very rare early V8 Chevrolet chassis and early 1950s
runabout in North Alabama. Finding them was the first challenge, now
getting them out of the basement of this old Chevrolet dealership is the
Chevrolet's first attempt at building a V8 in 1917 and 1918 put a
water-cooled overhead valve V8 on the road nearly 40 years before the
introduction of the legendary small block V8. The engine feature exposed
valve train components protected by a simple metal shield. The engine
cranked out a ground-pounding 36 horsepower. The Series D
Chevrolet that the engine was equipped in was a slow seller in showrooms
and quickly went out of production. This very rare example of a complete
Series D chassis was used as a showroom display at the now closed Word
Chevrolet in Scottsboro, Alabama for many years before going into basement
storage as seen here.
The Century Boat Company was started in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1926 and
was a leading builder of racing boats in the United States. The company
also built thousands of vessels for the US Navy during World War II, but it
was recreational runabouts and the larger cruisers that have been the
mainstay of the company ever since. The Century brand has changed hands
many time throughout the years, most recently being purchased back from
Yamaha and based in Dade, City Florida in the United States. This early
1950s boat was purchased new in 1953 by Jake Word and was enjoyed for over
a decade before maintenance forced the boat off the water into the basement
storage. The boat still bears it's most recent permit on the bow issued in
1962. This 19 foot runabout (likely a 'Resorter' model) is a classic wood
boat with a Continental six-cylinder engine that produces 125 horsepower.
