Here comes Part 2 of the Straight Eight Showdown. Will they come free or are they boat anchors? See Canadian ingenuity at work.

Part 3 of the Straight Eight challenge. Buick heavy this week, as the Buick has some serious issues. Will it even be possible to save this engine? Or will Team Packard win by default?

Part 4 of the Straight Eight Showdown. See some old school valve grinding action. The Packard is cleaning up and showing its class.

I love this channel! There's another series on reviving a 49 Frazer and making it a daily driver, complete with year after updates and videos of repairs along the way. I really enjoyed that because it's essentially what I'm trying to do, though I don't think I'll ever attempt a snow drifting shot in my car.

I also recommend a guy on Youtube who goes by TheCorvetteBen, whose done a series on a 56 Caddy DeVille and a 53 Olds 88. Ben doesn't have nearly the metalwork or machinery that these coldwar guys do and uses more bargain purchased parts, if you're watching with kids or sensitive audiences Ben doesn't have the cursing/drinking references, but he's also not as funny imo and he's in Texas so there's a bit of a disconnect weatherwise if you're from the North where there are seasons to contend with. Both channels do a great job of focusing on fixing the cars for as little money as possible, reusing as many parts as possible, without rodding, restoring, or hacking.

Looking forward to watching part 4 of the Packard v Buick challenge today!

Caught part 4 yesterday and I'm really enjoying the series. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Very enjoyable to watch. The accents and local lingo are great!

I've been watching coldwar motors channel for a couple of years. Go back and check out some older projects. The '49 Frazier daily driver was especially well done. I also enjoy the standard poodles for comic relief as my family also has one.

Was the head gasket they got for a 282 engine?

I've watched Coldwarmotors for 2 or 3 years now. Actually found they thru this website when the video was posted on them getting the Packard from a field.
