    Tom Cotter continues the hunt for forgotten cars in St. George, Utah. After talking with the owner of a street rod shop, Tom makes a few connections and sets up …


    Now that is 1 of 1.

    Did they take a “Splash Mold” of that car?

    Last guy that cut a Duesenberg engine in half was last seen with Jimmy Hoffa.

    I remember pictures of this car and Cadillac Allards in Road and Track- when it was a little pocket book size and only had B&W pics! Hope these people have heard of Iron Trap Garage- he has some out of sight period FH parts and accessories! Oh, Golly, Dang- I hope we get another look as it is done and when it is done! (FWIW; B&W= black and white- it's a kind of old "ok, Boomer" sort of thing!)


    Excuse my ignorance, but what is a 'splash mold'? Never heard the term before. Should have restored that 57 Buick back to stock. Another great show!

    Cool car! Love you he crazy chassis on that thing!


    New logo?

    I’d love to see that chop sawed Duesenberg 4 cylinder engine!

    VW vans are cool as hell, but the prices are out of the world even for trashed ones, you can't even buy a rusted out with any parts on it for $1400. And they're slow etc.

    Tom, if you're on Facebook you HAVE to join the "Crimes Against Automobiles" group – it defies explanation.

    That front split solid axle is a Len Terry design. (Len designed for Lotus, BRM and Eagle)

    DO NOT let your wife pick the colour.
    A friend of mine let his wife get his Kenworth painted whilst he was away in his other truck & came home to find it pink.

    there was a car show from about 2008 or so called lord of the car hordes, where they'd go into people barns, yards, sheds, etc, etc, etc , now these people where hoarders, the typical no not for sale 'i'll do it up one day guys ….
    anyway, the deal as they got to keep one car and these guys would 'restore' one for free and sell off whatever else was valuable….
    anyway in one of the episodes they had this guy with about 30 or 40 corvairs in his yard including a few vans, like the one at the start of this episode …
    you never know it may have been from that car show

    As the owner of a '66 Corsa, I approve of the Greenbrier!

    That Buick story is amazing to me . Cut a Duesenberg motor into 3 to make a 4 banger even in the 50`s seems nuts .Great episode this week .


    The Greenbriar was a real wake up. So much like a VW. Thanks, as always , for sharing. I had The Brute a while but it never stood up in a real race. The suspension on that car you showed is amazing.


    That Cisitalia literally looks like a piece of playground equipment.
