I knew that title was just another marketing ploy (but I looked anyway).

The good thing about that restoration is you never have to dump the tanks and you get flow through ventilation.

Totally amazing

I'm hoping he posts more videos as he continues on the rebuilding process.

Thanks for sharing!

Did anyone watch the other videos where he did the 'walk-around'? Jeez, that crate motor is sucking in enough air to blow an air horn. Makes you wonder what we need to do to our 454's to get that kind of air induction???

You get that kind of air induction by spending money, LOTS and LOTS of money

I thought he hooped off and took a leak in the woods, I guess he opened and closed a gate, unless he had to go again.
