The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the
pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past
15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.

Pismo Beach Cruise (2 OF 5) Classic Car Show - 21JUNE09
The Official Classic at Pismo Beach Cruise, the day before Father's Day
2009. (2 of 5) This video is for my dad, and all the dads who wanted to go
to this show, but couldn't because they're unable to walk & stand like the
old days. It's hell getting old and nothing lasts forever. Thank you GM &
Chrysler for making some incredible machines, and works of art over an
amazing time in history my dad lived through. And these cars! Just like my
pops, theyll never be anything like em...
The Pismo Beach Classic is one of the largest classic car and street rod
shows on the
West Coast and 'one of the finest.' Pismo Beach, California, is the host
city for this classic
car show, now in its 24th year. This show, held annually on the 3rd full
weekend of June,
pulls in 1000 classic cars and street rods and over 125,000 spectators over
General Motors (GM) was founded on September 27, 1908, in Flint, Michigan,
as a holding company for Buick, then controlled by William C. Durant. It
acquired Oldsmobile later that year. In 1909, Durant brought in Cadillac,
Elmore, Oakland (later known as Pontiac) and several others. Also in 1909,
General Motors acquired the Reliance Motor Truck Company of Owosso,
Michigan, and the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company of Pontiac, Michigan, the
predecessors of GMC Truck. Durant lost control of GM in 1910 to a bankers'
trust, because of the large amount of debt taken on in its acquisitions
coupled with a collapse in new vehicle sales. A few years later, Durant
started the Chevrolet Motor car company and through this he secretly
purchased a controlling interest in GM. Durant took back control of the
company after one of the most dramatic proxy wars in American business
history. Shortly after, he again lost control, this time for good, after
the new vehicle market collapsed. Alfred Sloan was picked to take charge of
the corporation and led it to its post war global dominance. This
unprecedented growth of GM would last into the early 1980s when it employed
349,000 workers and 150 assembly plants.
Chrysler was founded by Walter P. Chrysler on June 6, 1925. The Chrysler
was a 6-cylinder automobile, designed to provide customers with an
advanced, well-engineered car, but at a more affordable price than they
might expect. (Elements of this car are traceable back to a prototype which
had been under development at Willys at the time that Walter Chrysler was
there). The original 1924 Chrysler included a carburetor air filter,
high compression engine, full pressure lubrication, and an oil filter, at a
time when most autos came without these features. Among the innovations
in its early years would be the first practical mass-produced four-wheel
hydraulic brakes, a system nearly completely engineered by Chrysler with
patents assigned to Lockheed, and rubber engine mounts to reduce vibration.
The advanced engineering and testing that went into Chrysler Corporation
cars helped to push the company to the second-place position in U.S. sales
by 1936, a position it would last hold in 1949.
The Ford Motor Company was launched in a converted factory in 1903 with
$28,000 in cash from twelve investors, most notably John and Horace Dodge
(who would later found their own car company). Henry's first attempt under
his name was the Henry Ford Company on November 3, 1901, which became the
Cadillac Motor Company on August 22, 1902. During its early years, the
company produced just a few cars a day at its factory on Mack Avenue in
Detroit, Michigan. Groups of two or three men worked on each car from
components made to order by other companies. Henry Ford was 40 years old
when he founded the Ford Motor Company, which would go on to become one of
the world's largest and most profitable companies, as well as being one to
survive the Great Depression. As one of the largest family-controlled
companies in the world, the Ford Motor Company has been in continuous
family control for over 100 years.
Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The
junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over
the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given
special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed
with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be
done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore.
Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.

The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.
