Stored for 26 years, a 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra sheds its cage – Hemming & The Barn Find Hunter

I recently watched an episode of Tom Cotter’s “The Barn Find Hunter” where he found an unbelievable haul of cars, one of which was a rare Cobra.

You can watch the video from the show below.

Kurt Ernst at Hemmings has done an article on the same find which you can read here






The Duesenberg Hot Rod

Whilst watching a recent edition of Jay Leno’s Garage on YouTube I was reminded of  what a cool car  “The Duesenberg Hot Rod”  actually is!

I saw some pictures of the car years ago and with the mainstream coverage of the old car hobby these days it was nice to see it up close via Jay’s channel.

The car was built back in the 40’s by Hal & Bill Ulrich.

Dave Blake shares an important piece of hot rod history the car won the first nationally sanctioned SCCA drag race!

The Blake family has owned the car since the mid 70’s, Mr Blake’s Father saved the car from being sold and broken up for parts, Mr Blake couldn’t afford to buy the car but traded it for a Cadillac.

Watch the video to hear about the history and the modifications to this piece of Hot Rod history.


The car pictured in 2011 via The Hot Rod Disorder blog is I believe based off a 1934 Ford body and Duesy chassis and running gear.

Here’s another shot from Howard Gribble on Flickr with some background on the car.

There is also a really interesting thread on the car from the ACD Club forum here

1929 Model A Ford Sport Coupe Misfire

Upon starting the A today I was experiencing a bit of a Misfire, heard a tracking sound and found a plug arcing out on the advance & retard lever. The car has a Simmons head which means the plugs are in a non standard position. New one on me, maybe the weather? All cured by a little bit of insulation tape. I have a modern cap & leads to fit but I like the old style strips!



My Model A The Story So Far!

Here’s a video of a lot of the work I’ve done on the Model A, (with help, John, Simon, Mr H, Karen to name but a few!), in the past three years.

I’ll improve it as time goes on, but it’s an interesting record of progress.
