    4 years sat on a lift in a very nice shop... "Barn Find" - Yeah no.
    Your apparently surprise that things work is pretty laughable, I'm sure you did this on purpose to trigger everyone. 😂

    Beautiful find on what looks to be a pretty clean 66 Vette. For sure the split window is a valued year but in reality this one still gives you the gorgeous body lines and "slightly" improved visibility. Slightly .....

    Hey....I don't see straps holding the car on. Also, you are suppose to trailer it front first not rear end forward. Air catches the hood.

    Is it sad that my takeaway is that GM hasn't moved the battery in 60 years? (Z06 being the exception.)

    Hoovie, the music you're using in this episode is making me LOL. Especially that little ditty @ 5:45! Love your channel. Subscriber for 3 years now. Keep up the fun entertainment. Only time I was disappointed with you the "Wrong hole" episode about the Mercedes trans vs differential fluid mix up but you saved it with the next episode when you apologized to the Wizard for your anger with him and, as always, he handled your apology like the champ, cool dude that he is!!! So; it's all good now. You're too good of a person to berate a friend as good as he is to you. Nice job my friend!

    One of my coworkers is an old retired guy just working a couple shifts a week here and there, and his first car was a 1963 split window. He loves to talk about how he was able to pick it up with the money he made from a summer job because by 1975 when he bought the thing no one wanted them anymore. It’s absolutely insane to think there was a time the C2 wasn’t desirable
