On this episode, Stacey goes where all of us have been before to pull an old derelict SEMI TRUCK ('69 Loadstar/International) out of a quiet junkyard to demonstrate the steps necessary to get an old, neglected vehicle running again. From rat's nests to chicken poop, it's all here as Stacey slowly coaxes the old truck back to life. This show definitely drives the point home that if something like this can be revived, there's NOTHING that you should be afraid to tackle as long as you are armed with a set of tools and a sense of adventure! Go get 'em!

LMC Truck: Shortbed Conversion [S7 Ep. 3-1]
Everybody wants a classic short bed pickup. Unfortunately short beds are
hard to find for a good price... but, long beds are a dime-a-dozen, and
cheap! The solution?...chop a long bed down! That is exactly what Stacey
does on this episode of GEARZ. He takes a classic 67 Chevy long bed, and
walks you through the way to cut the frame properly, so you have a safe and
reliable truck when you are done. If you've heard about this kind of
modification, but always thought it was too difficult or involved for you
to do, you need to watch this episode of GEARZ and let the cutting begin!
HEAVY METAL Suspension [S6 Ep.12-2]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls Heavy Metal back into the shop and begins to
lay out some of the incredible modifications that he is going to be doing
on this old junk yard '69 International Cabover truck. A custom four-link
air suspension goes on first, and then a slick air brake system to pull
this big monster to a stop. A custom Exhaust is also laid out, along with numerous
other modifications to make this a one of a kind rig. If you have ever
wondered if a Cabover could make a cool hot rod, you need to check this
out. From there it's off to the movies as Stacey digs into the impact
and influence movie cars have on our lives and culture. To prove that
point, He brings in actor Dax Shepard and his cool '67 Lincoln Continental
that are both starring in the new movie "Hit and Run". So strap in and
hold on, 'cuz we might get airborne on this ride!

Speed Racer/ The Real Mach 5 [S4 Ep.3-3]
On this episode of GEARZ, Stacey digs into one of the most influential cars
and cartoons in our history -- Speed Racer and the Mach 5. This show not
only takes you thru the history of the cartoon, but also its cultural
impact on multi-generations as well. But that's not all, Stacey manages to
"borrow" the real Mach 5 and put it thru the paces against Racer X and
other challengers. If you've never crossed the line between fact and
fiction, real and imagined, we invite you to do it now with Stacey. Go...
Speed Racer... Go!
There's A Right Way...And Then There's This Way
*WATCH IN HD* Bad decision? Yes. Lucky? HELL YES! Lucky they only lost
a fuel tank and some straps instead of the whole truck. Had the truck not
gotten hung-up on it's tank, it would've continued right on over the edge
of the trailer and been wrecked. Also lucky the tank was almost empty and
diesel fuel is hard to ignite, for if it had, it would've consumed both the
truck and half the trailer. This 1971 White/Freightliner will live to race
another day. Shot at Truckin' For Kids in Irwindale, California on Sunday
October 6th, 2013. To see what led up to this, checkout my other video --
