Test Driving 575 HP 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4891

Thought you might like a look at this awesome 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4891 continuation model, built by Shelby American. This Cobra is powered by a 575 HP 427 Ford side-oiler V8, backed by a four-speed manual trans. It’s even riding on the correct Goodyear bias-ply, big-lettered race tires. This is one awesome beast, with more than enough power. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

1966 Batmobile Test Drive – Built from Original Barris Molds

This 1966 Batmobile replica was creating using the original George Barris molds. The body is sitting on a C3 corvette chassis that has been lengthened about four feet. It features the corvette front suspension and disc brakes. Under the hood, rests a 350 Buick V8, topped with an Edelbrock four barrel carb. It makes plenty of power to get this thing moving along in a hurry. Of course, it has many of the gadgets that were featured in the original Batman TV series, including the jet turbine at the back. As you can see in the video, this one actually spits fire as well. I hope you find this one interesting, thanks for watching. Special thanks to Ryan Harrison, from Motoexotica, for being patient with us and doing all the driving.

Folk Art Painting 36 Ford in the Country Almost Finished by RamblinAround

The weather has been keeping us inside a lot lately, so we’ve had to find things to keep us busy. I have been putting in a little more time on my painting and thought I should show you the progress. I really like painting these Folk art style landscapes and since I like classic cars, I usually include those as well. I try to start with primitive or naive style folk art, similar to the style of Grandma Moses, but then brighten it up and modernize it just a bit. They are just fun paintings to do and a good way to pass some time. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Painting Pontiac Trans Am GunMetal Gray Plasti Dip

We recently installed a new front bumper cover and ground effects on my son’s 1987 Trans Am. After the repair, the car was red and black, with a white bumper…so we decided it was time to paint it. We’re not ready for a show quality paint job yet, so we decided to go with Plasti Dip. Jordan cleaned, prepped, and painted the car entire on his own. In this video, you can see that it really is coming along well. I really like the gunmetal gray color. He also decided to remove the door moldings for a more clean and custom look. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
