Maggie's First Drive in Thirty Years
My 1967 Mercury Cougar "Maggie the Merc." being driven for the first time
since she was parked thirty years ago. Once abandoned and left for dead, in
this video she shows that she is not ready to die just yet, but is ready to
be on the road with her young new owner (me) and cruise once again the
asphalt she has not felt in years.
67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes,
and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers
matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in
this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major
components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your
numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto
Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible. Visit him

De Tomaso Pantera , first start after 26 years,part 1
We purchased our 1974 Detomaso Pantera in February 2013 out of Geneva New
York. Spent the time since then going over things and replacing items. The
car had been mothballed in 1986 and not even started since then. That's a
period of a little over 26 years. Kudos to the previous owner as I was
constantly amazed at the good state of repair things were in. Nevertheless
all items had to be checked. Marvel mystery oil the cylinders., Turned it
over by hand, all Felt good. Proceeded to turn it over with the starter
with the electric disconnected. Noted that we had good oil pressure. Purged
and refilled the Cooling system. All fluids in the engine and transaxle
were drained and replaced with fresh. New belts and hoses were necessary.
All braided stainless fuel lines were removed and inspected however I was
not able to determine that there were leaks in them. This became apparent
that the first attempt at start up as you will see in the video. Replaced
all brake hoses with braided stainless and upon attempting to bleed them
found that the calipers were now seized. Just received the rebuild kits
today and I'm in the process of rebuilding all the calipers. I am so
looking forward to getting this car on the road. After we replaced all the
fuel hoses it ran like a top which absolutely amazed me. Right out of the
box the Weber 48 I DAs had a perfect idlel at a little over 800 RPM after
26 years. I didn't touch them. I'll keep you posted on the progress. Check
out part two and part three of the same video title
Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
$250 1997 Ford Explorer | First Start After Sitting For 1 Year
I CAN'T RESPOND TO COMMENTS. GOOGLE+ IS MESSED UP ON MY ACCOUNT!!!!
Recently obtained a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport, and this is the first time
it's started in over a year.
We recently moved to a new house, and I noticed this truck sitting near the
house. I talked to the landlord and found out that a previous renter had
left this Explorer there due to an electrical problem. She said scrap
wouldn't even give her $200 for it, so I said I'll buy it for $250. The
plan is for me to fix it, get it in good shape again, and sell it for a
It's a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport. It's the 2-door model, 4.0l OHV pushrod
V6, 5-speed manual transmission, dual range 4WD. It has 342,429 miles on it
(551,086 kilometers), which is a lot.
I took a look at it, and came up with a list of problems on it. I was
unsure if it'd be worth it, if I'd be able to make a profit. But I didn't
want to it to go to the junkyard. I decided I would try and get it to
start. I didn't want to spend a lot of money since I didn't know if it had
a major internal problem.
I ended up paying $160 or so for new battery terminals, a new starter
solenoid, and a new starter motor. Starter motor was a PITA to replace
because of Ford's ridiculous engineering, but I got it done. And it started
right up!! As you can tell, I was happy about it.
With the engine running, I had the chance to test everything. The only
things that don't work are the A/C, power mirrors, headlights, and rear
wiper. But I will go on and try and fix those things.
Next step is to change out the fluids. New oil, new oil filter, new
coolant, and new power steering fluid. Also gonna change out the air
filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires.
With all that done, I'm gonna make a run to the junkyard to make this thing
driveable (seat doesn't stay upright and steering wheel is loose).
Then gotta get it cleaned up and registered.
I can definitely keep posting videos as this thing progresses!

wrenching, hilarious snafus, and cameo appearances by the Macho Grande from
episode 8, the '66 Buick Special convertible from a pre-Roadkill episode,
the ramp truck from episode 20, and the Fury from episode 22. Enjoy the
last Roadkill of 2013!

Street racing in 1979, Dieters 1970 Cougar
Dieter's 1970 Cougar Eliminator (former NHRA Super Stock car) with a
modified Boss 351C motor, (very rare), street racing an all out 1969 Camaro drag car in 1979.
Old school street racing where it all began and the way it was back then.
NO juice in those days, and healthy small blocks were making about 425 HP.
1969 Camaro RS/SS First Start up in 28 Years
Working on getting my dads new project car, a 69 Camaro started after sitting for
28 years untouched and uncovered in an Anchorage, Alaska back yard. It was
originally a big block/4speed car but was swapped to a 327 in the early
80's. The engine was covered in leafs, moss and debris and had no air
cleaner, headers or half the spark plugs when we got it. The car has been
parked since 1984, watch to see if we get it going! Don't pay any
attention to the Z28 badges someone added those long ago and it was
originally Daytona Yellow not white. More details coming soon....
