Cycling Over The Bowstring Bridge Leicester, 2009.
On a cold clear Valentine's day 2009, I saw the council had left the gates to the southern end of the threatened bridge open. No signs to deter anyone were displayed. I made this short film to show the potential of the bridge from a future user's point of view, and to show the good condition of the steelwork. This seems to contradict everything Leicester City Council is telling us about the bridge.

Driving a Survivor 1966 Plymouth Barracuda
It's not loud. It's smooth and quieter than most modem "muscle" cars that try to be what a Barracuda was.
Wrecks to Riches | S01E02 | Christine Camaro
Barry White knows a good wreck when he sees one. At least he thought he did. The old '69 Camaro shell he bought from a wrecking yard turns out to be cursed. Paint-stripper and angle-grinders reveal hidden rust and dodgy body work, delaying the build and forcing him to shell out more money than he planned on new sheet-metal. That's just the start of it. As the build goes on, strange things start happening. The super-charger doesn't fit the engine. Wrong parts are delivered. The engine bay catches fire. Wind sends newly painted parts crashing to the ground and back to the paint shop. The team dub the Camaro "Christine" after the killer car in Stephen King's novel. But Barry gets help from an unusual source. The Corona Police Department have some muscle car fans who offer to get the build back on schedule. The well-drilled machine work like a dream and finally Christine is ready for auction at picturesque Jackson Hole. But Barry's had to spend way more than he planned. The Camaro owes him $40,000. Barry's nervous. Even more so when the auction gets underway and a rival fully restored Camaro goes under the hammer for just $25,000. Will Christine's curse mean Barry loses his shirt?
(Restoration of a 1967 Plymouth Barracuda) PROJECT FISH - PART 01
Outside of my airsoft hobby, I have this one. "Muscle" cars. Funny, in THIS generation, it is called "muscle" cars..... Way back then, it was just a car..... Maybe this generation discerns the difference between "ricer", "rice burner", "tuners", "classic car" and "muscle cars". This is my friends 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. It will be a LOW COST, ground-up restoration. No media blasting, not even sand blasting. Cannot afford that "luxury". I will be using various ways to remove the old paint, and spot checking for rust holes. Part one is rust check and paint removal. As well as showing the small block 340 that will go in the car affter we prep and paint the "engine compartment..... This is the first of MANY videos that will span the course of over one year!
