How to find and repair classic cars

Monday is Tom Cotter et le soy host of Barn Find Hunter. You know, barn spotting, is defined as a forgotten, neglected, and neglected vehicle, whether it's in a barn or in a field, garage, garage, warehouse. And pas moi would like to have clues. I love developing tracks on the ground, driving on the highway, and getting a feel for the city. What I'm looking for isn't necessarily the device, the car.

It is the date when these devices were developed. We are looking for cars in a commercial area in Midland, Texas. There is a field mostly full of cars. The owner, Tom Cross, owns a swimming pool company, this is his own small car empire. He goes and drags them home, and they've been there for 20 or 30 years. And we started walking and looking at them and I saw that car. And then we just kept walking, and I went back to that car, and we walked more and more and we looked at this car, this car, and I went back to that car. And that's how we found that car.

I have compound, I have rags and I'm starting to polish that fender. And I said, "This car doesn't want to die." Dust is a big problem there. The wind blows endlessly. So the good news is that there is very little moisture, and therefore cars do not rust. But even if the car is completely closed, the windows are closed, and dirt will get there. After 30 years, a lot of dirt got in there. It was the body that attracted me, because it was in such good shape.

Pass by the perfect, but the original paint. It doesn't look like it has been messed up or modified or anything like that. It removes all that old rusty red paint with a polisher and you're covered with this red sticky substance. pass fraud. That little patch led to a flap, led to the entire car. We put together a team of students from McPherson College in McPherson, Kansas, that restoration school, and we spent the winter.

We've been working on it for a quarter of a year. Tom Cross and all his friends got involved, introducing us to the engine, transmission and rear end. His friends rebuilt it. He had a local club donate parts and time to the project, because he was going for a good cause. So, it was like building a car from scratch.

If you can imagine building a hot rod, you start with a chassis and chassis, then you have to add all the components. I needed tie rod ends and ball joints. So we rebuilt the front end and put disc brakes on it. Wiring, brake lines, fuel system, fuel tank, glass, I mean, at least everything should be checked if it's not restored or replaced.

They put disc brakes on it. We built 390. They rebuilt the transmission. We put mexican blankets as seat covers. And I had to polish the entire car, not just the fenders. They put cool wheels on it, great tires.

It was a much bigger project than I realized that day when I first sanded the flap a bit, but little by little, it came together. Later, we took it from Midland, Texas, to McPherson, Kansas, and introduced it to the school as a search vehicle for parts.

It is still there today. Oddly enough, things we didn't finish the way we wanted, students at the school had them all upholstered, new ceilings, door panels, and seat covers, to factory specifications as part of a graduation project. So from cradle to grave we were in charge of that car, and it was one of the most rewarding episodes I can remember.
