Part 2 - 1926 Model T Ford pickup rat rod cranking of Buick 455
This is the second video of my 1926 Ford Roadster pickup. Still a long way to go, but, it's slowly coming together. And yes, I'm leaving the body rusty with NO windshield! For those interested, the motor is a Big Block Buick 455 bored .030" over to 462 cubic inches. Dual 4 barrel Offy intake with Holley 450 cfm carbs, Edelbrock RPM Stage 1 heads, 10.59 to 1 compression, TA 286-04H cam (custom ground camshaft with 234* / 252* at .050" - .478" / .478" lift - 113* LS + 4 degrees), 1970 block with oiling mods and zero decked, balanced, etc...
INSANE 57 Chevy Wagon RAT ROD!
Join us as we take Rick Newberry's absolutely INSANE 1957 Chevy Wagon Rat Rod for a Sunday drive in busy Holiday traffic. This 2013 'Rat Rod Build Off' winner features a ratted out, chopped and channeled '57 Wagon body on a custom built frame by ITW Hot Rods, and a 355ci Yeoman Racing Engines Small Block Chevy engine. After taking a spin in this wild hot rod you realize that this thing TURNS HEADS!
Nope, this isn't your old man's car show with hundred-thousand-dollar restorations and flashy paint jobs. This is a REAL car show, Southern Oregon style. The 8th Annual Ratrod-O-Rama car show was held on August 22 at historic Pottsville in Southern Oregon. The rides were 1964 and earlier traditional style rods, customs, lead sleds, rat rods, and traditional chopper and bobber motorcycles. Throw in a dual jet-powered drag bike by Rocket Man Bob Maddox, Matt Rossback's Dodge Brothers War Rig, and the Rat Rod Mike-mobile and you've got a show. But that's not all there was at this family event. Mimi D'Lite produced the 1950s-1960s style pin-up contest with 20 pretty contestants, music was provided by Sarah Dion Brooks, Ruby Rose, the John Dough Boys, and the surf-king Sleazetones, and metal guru Randy Grubb gave kids free lessons at the Weld-O-Rama. The Josephine County Fire Department showed off their truck and cow train gave kids a ride all over the beautiful grounds. There were great people and it was for a good cause: Ratrod-O-Rama is a benefit for the Rogue Valley Humane Society and their volunteers were out walking the dogs an finding good homes for them. http://www.ratrod-o-rama.com Photos by Randy Johnson, Renee Olmsted, and Ratrod Ray Video copyright 2015 by Flying Hawk Productions http://www.johnsonartworks.com/portfolio.htm
