Double Fatal Model A vs Nissan Titan - Graham WA

A sad story from May 7, 2005. The driver and passenger of the Model A were killed when the driver of Titan failed to yeild when making a left turn. The eldery couple was returning home from an antique car event. Several other friends drove past the wreck in their own classic cars. The driver died at the scene. The passenger, his wife died at the hospital. Seats belts might have allowed for a different out come, but were not installed in the Model A. Because of the age of the vehicle, seat belts were not required. I do not know if the driver of the Titan was later charged with anything.

Pole Embedded in Car With Extrication
Another one for the "How did he survive that" file. Honda Accord is sliced by a pole to the point that the car is suspended above ground. Solo driver is extricated and airlifted to a Trauma Center and survives with extremity fractures. He was allegedly intoxicated.





Nissan Titan Horror Story
You won't believe this story. Please read before you buy a Nissan. This repair took 68 days for Nissan to complete and final cost was $8000 and still was not fixed properly. Totally unacceptable for what was basically an Exhaust pipe that fell off. Had this repair been completed in a timely manner at a reasonable price this video never would have been made. This Titan was traded in for a Ford F-150 and when Ford did their inspection before putting it for sale they discovered the truck was still not repaired properly. Last I heard this Titan was sent back to Nissan to get more work done.

Open Engine Model A Ford
1929 Ford Model A Open Runner Engine Display. The first thing you will notice is that the engine is on it's side to give a semi-full view of it's moving parts. Next you will see the distributor has been moved upright to give a better view of the pistons and valves. The 4th cylinder is the only working part of the engine. Bearings and pistons are lubricated with grease and oil. Run times are short due to overheating. There is no cooling other than a few holes drilled into the waterjacket by the Exhaust. Yes, I could have made it water-cooled, but it's the start-up that makes the show!
