    NATIONAL HOT ROD ASSOCIATION 11TH ANNUAL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS AT INDIANAPOLIS RACEWAY PARK 46334
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Dec 30, 2016
    Drag racing and the National Hot Rod Association takes centerstage in this circa 1965 film presented by Hurst Performance Products. The film reminds the viewer of the modest beginnings of a hot rod (mark 00:45) and how fanatics would take old cars and drop a big engine in a small car, remove the fenders and windshield, and before you know it — a hot rod. The narrator continues to trace the vehicle’s development and how the sport became one that was carefully engineered as various incarnations of cars are shown. By mark 03:39 we’re taken to the drag strip at Los Angeles County Fairgrounds for the NHRA Winter Nationals Drag Race. (Originally scheduled for three days, the event was reduced to just a single day by heavy fog and persistent rain Friday and Saturday.) From there we see the Spring Nationals in Bristol, Tennessee starting at mark 06:42 with several highlights shown. Beginning at mark 12:55 we’re taken to the 1965 NHRA Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park — “the payoff for drivers who have traveled the circuit from coast to coast.” Scenes include pit crews preparing and fine tuning their vehicles for the race, with racers such as Don Garlits and Don Prudhomme shown in action. Prudhomme went on to capture Top Fuel Dragster honors, shown at mark 21:42.

    We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting? Tell people what it is and what they can see by writing something for example: "01:00:12:00 -- President Roosevelt is seen meeting with Winston Churchill at the Quebec Conference."

    This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA. Entirely film backed, this material is available for licensing in 24p HD, 2k and 4k. For more information visit http://www.PeriscopeFilm.com

    Running a Supercar Fleet - McLaren, Ferrari etc [Fuel For Thought]
    Shmee150



    Published on Jan 1, 2017
    Time for some more Fuel For Thought; this time out in the McLaren 675LT Spider let's talk a bit about what's involved in maintaining and keeping a fleet of cars and/or supercars up and running.

    I suppose there's a little more to it than initially meets the eye in terms of managing maintenance, insurance, tax, servicing, storage, and everything else involved in each car - and of course avoiding inevitable flat batteries!

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    MY TOP 3 SUPERCAR MOMENTS OF 2016
    Mr JWW



    Published on Dec 31, 2016
    2016 has been my first complete year of being an automotive YouTuber. The places I have been, the people I have met, the cars I have driven and the experiences it has lead to has been nothing short of spectacular! I thought my final video of 2016 should be to highlight my top 3 experiences this year and to give you a little more insight into each one beyond what was first portrayed in the initial videos.

    Do You Like Dirty Cars?
    Shmee150



    Published on Jan 2, 2017
    2017 is here, and my Focus RS is rather dirty... but that just begs the question - do you like to see a car in this state? Should it be perfectly clean or should they look properly used?

    I've been away in Dusseldorf, Germany for New Year's Eve, some fun things to come from here too! Then it will inevitably be back home and time for a visit to Posh Wash to have things sorted out.

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    ETCG Talks About 2017
    ETCG1



    Published on Jan 2, 2017
    It seems like 2016 flew by. I did more traveling, and more videos than ever before. I also took on some new vehicles that many of you are excited about. Mainly the 2001 Acura Integra and my 1990 Chevy C1500 pickup.

    The first thing I'd like to do in 2017 is get the #FairmontProject done. Once that's wrapped up, I plan to turn my attention to Fixing it Forward. Before the end of 2017, I'd like that program to be up and running.

    I plan to mix in some other videos that will be about more 'general' repair information. Also, I'm sure there'll be a few new things coming through the door this year. We'll just have to wait and see on those. For now, kick back and get ready for the new year.

    What Supercar Would You Choose?
    Shmee150



    Published on Jan 3, 2017
    There are a lot of very nice cars to be seen under one roof at the Classic Remise in Düsseldorf so it has become a regular stop for me when in the area. You have a mixture of privately owned cars held for storage in the glass 'boxes' as well as numerous classic and super cars on sale within the building too.

    I visited while things were mostly shut down for the New Year holiday time but there was still a lot around. From cars on sale like the Aston Martin Vantage GT12, Lamborghini LM002, Donkervoort D8 GTO to the cars in storage including a Ferrari F40, Mercedes SLS Black Series and Ford GT.

    The big question though, out of everything you've seen in this video, which would you choose if you could have one?

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    The Tramontana R is a Bug-like Supercar
    Shmee150



    Published on Jan 4, 2017
    Stopping by PACE in Germany to take a look at a car in stock that I've never seen up close, the Spanish-supercar that is the Tramontana R. With an unusual seating configuration, a canopy that opens upwards and the look of an insect you might be surprised to know that it's powered by a 720hp Mercedes sourced 5.5l Twin Turbocharged V12... When you combine that with over 900Nm of torque, that means it's quick - really quick!

    A thanks goes to PACE for the opportunity to take a look at the Tramontana up close, and start it up to show you a car of which there really aren't many in the world.

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    Why did I buy a GMC over a Ram truck?

    There are more than a few reasons I bought a Chevy over a Ram. Watch to learn why I made the decision. I also briefly discuss why I chose not to buy from the dealership that I work for and at the end briefly talk about some ideas I have for drawer organization for the New Tool Box.Cheers!

    Rarest Corvettes: Bill Tower's Collection 1-5-2017 & Larry's Buckland's Garage
    37spiker



    Published on Jan 5, 2017
    The video is almost an hour long, but if you’re into Chevy’s and Corvettes you’ll love listening to this guy talk about his experiences. The younger guy with him is his friend who owns Stingray Chevrolet. Today was one of the highlights of my years spent in Florida. We started out at the breakfast gathering at Larry’s Buckland's garage (I hope I have his last name right). Then we went on to see Bill Towers collection. I mean, HE HAS THE REAL “PASS IN THE GRASS” DALE EARNHARDT CAR, and also worked on it way back when. He was a GM engineer for years, he worked with Smokey Yunick, as well as many other famous automobile industry people. He’s the father of the 4 bolt main. He was instrumental in the development of the 427 engine, he’s worked on Dale Earnhardt’s championship winning cars as well as Darrell Waltrip’s. He was instrumental in development of the L88 and ZL1 engines. He even designed the famous GM rally wheels. Near the end of my video you’ll see another video with Rick Hendricks, Ed Welburn (GM retired chief design Engineer), as well as a retired GM CEO, Jim Perkins, visiting his garage. A dream day.

    How To Install a Trunk Mounted Battery #FairmontProject
    EricTheCarGuy



    Published on Jan 6, 2017
    Since my turbo is taking up the space that used to be occupied by my battery, I needed to move it. It’s common practice in a ‘hot rod’ to relocate the battery to the trunk, or boot, depending on where you’re from.

    In my case, I needed to remove the fuel tank to make that happen. You may or may not run into this issue. I just want to prepare you in case you do need to remove it.

    Here’s a link to the video where I removed the fuel tank: Video link posted when available.

    I realize this isn’t 100% complete. I still need to run the positive cable. I’ll be covering that in a future video when I remove the interior to install the new wiring harness. Till then, this should get you started.
