1936 Cord First Drive, MG Restoration Complete, & Spohn Custom

The crew at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO, are putting the final touches on the 1936 Cord 810. In this video, we took the car for it’s first test drive and it did really well. They have a few little bits left to add, then we’ll do a complete video on it. The restoration has also been completed on the nice little MG. The owner is now going to take the car home and install the engine and transmission. We hope to get another look at it after it’s up and running. Kurt McCormick stopped by to check on the progress on his Sam Barris custom Buick. The whole crew has done a wonderful job with it. Kurt was sure to thank Craig Wimmer for the amazing job he did with the wet sanding and buffing. The paint truly looks flawless. We hope you find this interesting, we’ll have more video on all of these cars in the near future. Thanks for watching!

Ferrari 550 Maranello V12 Roaring Through the Country

It was a beautiful day for a drive, so we decide to take the Ferrari 550 Maranello and find some country roads. The crew at Manns Restoration just finished some repairs on the car and it was time for a good road test. The 550 is powered by 65 degree V12 with four valves per cylinder, that cranks out around 480 horsepower. It will power the car to a top speed of right at 200 mph and it makes some glorious noises while doing so. This is an amazing touring car, that flies through sweeping curves with ease. We hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Trans Am First Road Test

 

Jordan decided to take his Trans Am out for it’s first road test since the repairs. He was worried the the transmission might have been damaged when the flexplate came apart, but it seems to be good. He also repaired the oil pump pickup and the engine is showing great oil pressure. He’ll get it out for a better drive when the weather is a little nicer. The wet roads make things a little too exciting when you hammer into it. Obviously, he still needs to put the hood back on and get the rest of his exhaust hooked up. I’m sure he’ll have it all back together shortly. Thanks for watching!

Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Race Cars, and Classics – RamblinAround

This is a collection of awesome cars we’ve filmed over the past few years. Whether you’re into street rods, muscle cars, or nicely restored classics, we have you covered.

RamblinAround – Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Race Cars, and Classics

This is just a short video I threw together for fun. It’s sort of a channel trailer I guess. I just put some interesting clips together from the past few years. We have driven some pretty awesome machines over the years and this is just a small sample. There are a couple of supercharged cars, one turbocharged monster, some drag cars, and more. Even tossed in a clip of Jordan doing some shooting with his Mossberg. Anyway, hopefully you find it interesting…thanks for watching!

Test Driving 1970 Chevelle SS 396 Big-block V8 Four-speed

I thought you might like a look at this awesome 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, from Passing Lane Motors. This is a true L34 396 Big-block V8, four-speed car. As you can see, it has been beautifully restored in the correct factory color. It’s riding on SS wheels, with BF Goodrich white letter tires. The paint is extremely slick, the interior looks like new, and it runs out great. It really doesn’t get any better. I hope you find it interesting. We felt very fortunate to be able to take this baby for a little test drive. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!
