Fast n Loud
So, I'm sitting here watching part II of the episode where they're restoring the 68 Shelby Mustang. Of course they did what they always do, and cheap-skated and cut corners on everything. Last week, I watched them put el-cheapo generic parts store oil in the freshly rebuilt engine for the first fire-up. It ran fine - for a few minutes. Then it started shaking and acting up. They shut it down, drained the oil --- lo and behold it's full of metal. So what did these geniuses do? That's right, they put in fresh oil and tried it again.
It got worse.
So they bring in the engine builder to have a look. They pulled the intake and well whaddya know... two stuck lifters, a flattened cam, and an engine full of metal shavings. All because these morons don't have a clue about breaking in a fresh engine with a flat-tappet cam. They should have used high-zinc oil and they should have pulled the inner springs for the break-in but noooo... they had to go cheap again and this time it bit them in their collective bo-hunkusses. After paying to have it rebuilt (again), the next time at least they used good oil and appear to have gotten lucky - on the engine.
Now they're f*rting around with an electical problem because they were (surprise) too cheap to replace the 45 year old wiring harnesses.
I wouldn't let these idiots within 20 feet of my car.
Hah! So now he's showing it to a prospective driver, and the thing doesn't even have a headliner in it.
