If you've been around cars and trucks very long, you know that vintage, nostalgia, and rat rods are very popular. The question is, how do you make a nostalgia-style car with leaf springs hook up like a modern drag car but not lose the vintage look? Simple...you install a ladder bar system! But how do you keep the leaf springs from binding you ask? Ah...there is a special way to do it, and if you want to find out what it is...you need to catch this episode of GearZ. Then it's out on the road to test it out as Stacey shows you just how much fun you can have with a nostalgia-style vehicle. Would somebody please bail him out of jail?!?!

Heavy Metal Tow Truck [S7 Ep. 2-1]
Today on GEARZ, project Heavy Metal is back as Stacey rolls the old International cab over truck into the shop so he can outfit it with a vintage Holmes dual wrecker bed. It is auto recycling at its best as the big truck continues to come together using parts from a junkyard wrecker, swap meet vintage beer kegs, and even some new aftermarket parts. If you've always thought that you had to spend big money to build a unique vehicle, this "Heavy Metal" truck will not only change your mind, but probably have you digging through old junkyards and checking out pastures in hopes of finding a vintage truck project of your own! That's a typical reaction...and that's typical for GEARZ!





Knuckle Buster Returns [S3 Ep.12-1]
IT'S BA-A-A-A-A-ACK! That's right! The "KnuckleBuster" is back on GearZ, and Stacey is putting the final touches on this '73 Chevy pickup. After a quick look at the new paint slathered on its flanks, Stacey gives the truck a face lift with grille, bumpers, and all that other cool trim stuff. Then it's on to the bed where he lays in some oak to give the former "beater" some class and style. Finally, it's underneath to stick in a new Exhaust system to keep the bad gas blowing out the back. If you have ever wondered if you could really build something cool yourself... all you have to do is check out the finished "KnuckleBuster" and be willing to bust YOUR own knuckles... the rest will take care of itself!!
