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!

1969 Jaguar E-type Roadster Update – Manns Restoration

 

We thought you might like a look at this 1969 Jaguar E-type, that is currently being restored at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. It’s powered by the DOHC 4.2 Inline Six, equipped with triple SU carbs. The exhaust gases are expelled through a beautiful set of split headers, then back through the full dual exhaust. It has been upgraded to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission for better performance, highway cruising, and fuel economy. This car is also equipped with Jaguar’s fully independent rear suspension, so it should handle like it’s on rails. It’s going to be a beautiful car when it’s completed. We’ll come back and give you another look when it’s ready to hit the road.

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!

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!
