Does YouTube Help or Hurt the DIY?
ETCG1


Published on May 1, 2017
The question has to be posed, does YouTube help or hurt the DIY? In my career as an automotive technician, I've had my fair share of customers come to me with solutions about their vehicles before I even begin work. It's sites like YouTube that inspire these things.

In my experience this hasn't always been good. In fact, sometimes it's a downright PITA. However, there are times when a customer is right about something they saw on YouTube.

So I put the question to you, especially the automotive technicians out there, does YouTube help or hurt the DIYer?

Intro music by Eric Cook "ETCG1 Intro".

Is the Mercedes-AMG E43 a 'Real' AMG?
Shmee150


Published on May 2, 2017
AMG have broadened their line up with the introduction of cars wearing the 43 designation; sitting beneath the full-on sports cars, models like the E43 4MATIC add a sporty touch at a more affordable price point.

Having quickly arrived across many models in the line-up, from the GLE 43 to the SLC 43, and here in particular the younger brother to the brutal E63 S that I drove recent.

The question is though, what's it about? Let's take a look around at what you get on this car in particular that differentiates it before seeing what it's like on the road.

Thanks for watching, Tim

CHRISTMAS STORYTELLERS AT CPTV - A JOHN FORCE CHRISTMAS
CompetitionPlusTV


Published on May 6, 2017
Christmas time is about family, and for one storied drag racer, a metal toy log truck.

Sixteen-time NHRA champion John Force opens his heart about a five-year old's Christmas, and the challenges of growing up poor in the 1950s. This 20-minute video will tug at your heart, and if you are not careful, will have you shedding a tear or five.

A very emotional video where Force talks about his youthful lesson of learning the real meaning of Christmas.

My 675LT is BACK!
Shmee150


Published on May 6, 2017
The 675LT is back from the garage and ready to rock and roll at Supercar Sunday! As part of preparations to take all four cars down to the event, I needed to fill them up and get things ready - which also sounded like the perfect excuse to remind myself how the 675LT stacks up against the 720S now that I've driven it, and test out the new exhaust valve control on the GT8 a little more.

I can also introduce Fuel Faction DUE, the second FF tour that will take place around Italy - this time with some friends joining in the fun. The country is chosen as simply being one of the very best in which to drive and the tour will take us from Turin to Sardinia via Lake Como/Garda, the Dolomites, Venice, Bologna, Florence and across Tuscany to Rome and over to Sardinia.

5 Best Vintage V8 Muscle Car Engines
OldCarMemories.com


Published on May 7, 2017
There were many legendary V8 engines produced during the golden era of the American muscle car. Here is a list of the 5 best high performance V8 engines produced during this era. If you think we missed an engine or were wrong about an engine on the list, leave your comments and feedback below.

Special Note: the production Hemi equipped cars in this video refers to the 1966-1971 Dodge and Plymouth models equipped with the factory warrantied lower compression (10.25:1) 426 Hemi V8. The higher compression racing spec 426 Hemi V8 which was available in very few 1964 and 1965 Dodge and Plymouth models aren't considered production cars for this video.

ATHS SoCal Antique Truck Show 2017
USAutos98


Published on May 7, 2017
It's been a long 2 years waiting to come back to this show. School got in the way for both of us last year, and the pictures that were put up from that year by ATHS members ensured us that we wouldn't miss this coming year's show! We returned to the American Truck Historical Society's Southern California Chapter's antique truck show, held at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, California. Rain was a huge scare for many truckers, so the turnout was a little smaller than in previous years, and less older trucks showed up. Besides one or two very small periods of drizzling throughout the day, there was no severe rain, and the show went well! We even got to see them driving out - what an experience! Thanks once again to ATHS SoCal for putting on one of Southern California's most unique shows. Also big thanks to Terry Klenske and family of Dalton Trucking (the green fleet) for being so friendly and bringing some of the coolest trucks to the ATHS show every year. Finally, thanks to the Orange Empire Railway Museum for hosting the show venue. Hopefully weather won't be an issue for future shows. Can't wait to return to another ATHS show!
See individual pictures here. I will upload all the pictures when time allows: https://www.flickr.com/photos/usautos...

Highlights:
2:25 - Freightliner towing a 1959 cattle trailer
3:33 - 1939 GMC Yellow Coach Motorhome
3:37 - 1925 Autocar 27K
3:48 - Stu & Norm's 1959 Ford Pickup Truck (great pair of brothers from Whittier Area Classic Car Show 2016)
5:09 - Dunkel Brothers' 1949 GMC and 1947 MHS Car Carrier
5:19 - The trucks leave the show!
8:20 - Military truck leaves the show
10:34 - 1953 Kenworth Bullnose Flatbed leaves the show
12:36 - 1951 and 1955 Kenworth Fire Trucks
13:07 - International Transtar 400
13:42 - Dalton Trucking fleet leaves the show
21:02 - Kenworth

This 1996 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur cost the equivalent of $300,000... in 1996. So what did that money buy you 20 years ago? I took a closer look to find out.

When I bought my Land Rover Defender, a lot of you told me it was crazy to pay $70,000 for one. I'm comparing my Defender to a Range Rover to show you why you're wrong.

Why CarMax Makes So Much Money When They Sell a Car
Steve Richards


Published on Jun 6, 2016
A "good deal" is nothing more than the customer's perception; CarMax makes double the profit on a used car sales conventional dealers make. Yet people rave about the CarMax experience. You, the sales person, are in charge of that perception.

The World's Best Alfa Romeo Collection!
Shmee150


Published on May 13, 2017
We're on the way! Day 1 of Fuel Faction DUE kicks off from the Lingotto factory in Turin to take us up to Lake Como via two stops: Sparco and the Alfa Romeo Museum.

Joined by a group of friends we're heading around Italy from Turin towards Sardinia, on the second Fuel Faction tour supported by Trading 212 but this time also joined by some friends to make it even more fun. Visiting Sparco was new to most of the team and we were able to see the process for the seats in the new Ford GT as well as Bugatti Chiron, and then as we have two Alfa Romeos on the tour; the Giulia Quadrifoglio and the 4C Spider so this was the perfect second location.

Thanks for watching, Tim
