Interesting video on the history of the Buick Turbo 3.8 V6 of the late 70’s early 80’s. Very much ahead of its time. Buick nearly didn’t have the opportunity to leverage the engine having sold the engine to Kaiser to be used in the Jeep. Buick eventually realised its mistake and bought the V6 back. The turbo equipped unit had an output of 170hp in 1980. Watch the video to see the full story
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.
The McGee Deuce roadster, one of the most iconic hot rods ever, is now the focus of an exciting full-length documentary by the Historic Vehicle Association. Packed with vintage and contemporary action footage, and interviews with guys like Ed Iskenderian, the roadster’s current owner, Bruce Meyer, and TRJ senior contributor Pat Ganahl and senior editor Greg Sharp, the film captures the spirit of the car and the era it was born from. Click here to see a one-minute teaser and the full 20-minute documentary.
Brilliant video of a Ford Flathead V8 running without a cylinder head!
Attended the 2017 Goodwood Revival and as everyone knows this a very diverse event.
That taken into account, American vehicle and Americana were well represented down to a Gasoline Alley bar outdoor bar complete with moonshine running Hot Rods!
Plus the sound of the GT40 flat out down the main straight is hard to top.
This guy and this video are both awesome!

More 1930s Jam Handy films from The Old Motor, this time featuring braking systems. Despite the age of these videos the content is excellent. The videos can be found here

Great old British Pathe film of the American Drag Racing Team on tour in the UK circa 1964.
Racing from Blackbushe Airport which is very near where I live and sadly no longer hosts the drags 😦
