CONCOURS RESTORED 1909 FORD MODEL T GETS DRIVEN! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 738

CONCOURS RESTORED 1909 FORD MODEL T GETS DRIVEN! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 738 – Fireball heads to the Automobile Driving Museum for a Vintage Ford Model T Show… ends up cruisin’ in a Concourse Restored 1909 Ford Model T!

The Ford Model T was an American car built between 1908 and 1928 by the Ford Motor Company of Detroit, Michigan.

It is one of the most important cars in history because it was one of the first cars to be sold for very little money, making it easy for people to travel from place to place.

The Model T, also known as the “Tin Lizzie,” changed the way Americans live, work and travel.

Henry Ford’s revolutionary advancements in assembly-line automobile manufacturing made the Model T the first car to be affordable for a majority of Americans.

For the first time car ownership became a reality for average American workers, not just the wealthy.

More than 15 million Model Ts were built in Detroit and Highland Park, Michigan, and the automobile was also assembled at a Ford plant in Manchester, England, and at plants in continental Europe.

Before the Model T, most cars cost lots of money.

Only rich people could afford them. Even Ford’s cars before the Model T cost a lot. The Model T went for around $980.

A car built in 1903 called the Oldsmobile Curved Dash was very easy to buy, but was a very simple and slow car that was more like a carriage than a car. Even before it lost favor to larger, more powerful, and more luxurious cars, the Model T, known popularly as the “Tin Lizzie” or the “flivver,” had become an American folkloric symbol, essentially realizing Ford’s goal to “democratize the automobile.”

The man who owned the company, Henry Ford, heard about meat being cut on a disassembly line, which moved meat from worker to worker so that the meat could be cut up. Assembly lines were not much used at the time.

Ford knew that if he built his cars on an assembly line instead of one at a time like other cars, he could make a car that anyone could afford and would be built like cars that cost more money. He also knew that he could pay his workers more money.

The Model T was offered in several body styles, including a five-seat touring car, a two-seat runabout, and a seven-seat town car. All bodies were mounted on a uniform 100-inch-wheelbase chassis.

A choice of colors was originally available, but from 1913 to 1925 the car was mass-produced in only one color—black. The engine was simple and efficient, with all four cylinders cast in a single block and the cylinder head detachable for easy access and repair.

The engine generated 20 horsepower and propelled the car to modest top speeds of 40–45 miles per hour (65–70 km/h). In most models the engine was started by a hand crank, which activated a magneto connected to the flywheel, but after 1920 some models were equipped with battery-powered starters.

The transmission, having two forward gears and one reverse, was of the planetary type, controlled by foot pedals rather than the more common hand lever used in sliding-gear transmissions.

Spark and throttle were controlled by a hand lever on the steering column. The 10-gallon fuel tank was located under the front seat. Because gasoline was fed to the engine only by gravity, and also because the reverse gear offered more power than the forward gears, the Model T frequently had to be driven up a steep hill backward.

Such deficiencies, along with its homely appearance, less-than-comfortable ride at top speeds, and incessant rattling, made the Model T the butt of much affectionate humor in innumerable jokes, songs, poems, and stories.

RESTORED 1952 CHEVY SUBURBAN WOODIE – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 688

RESTORED 1952 CHEVY SUBURBAN WOODIE – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 688 – Fireball and Kathie head to the Murphy Museum to return the ’62 Pickup, spot a fully restored 1952 Chevy Suburban Woodie. The next day, it’s off to Wheels and Windmills in Solvang!

From WIKI… The Chevrolet Suburban is a full-size, extended-length sport utility vehicle from Chevrolet.

It is the longest continuous use automobile nameplate in production, starting in 1935 for the 1935 U.S. model year, and has traditionally been one of General Motors’ most profitable vehicles.

The Suburban has been produced under the Chevrolet, Holden, Plymouth and GMC marques until the GMC version was rebranded as the GMC Yukon XL.

For most of its recent history, the Suburban has been a station wagon-bodied version of the Chevrolet pickup truck, including the Chevrolet C/K and Silverado series of truck-based vehicles.

Cadillac offers a version called the Escalade ESV.

The Suburban is sold in the United States (including the insular territories), Canada, Mexico, Chile, the Philippines, and the Middle East (except Israel) as a left-hand drive vehicle, while the Yukon XL is sold only in North America (United States and Canada) and The Middle East territories (except Israel).

This model 1952 generation was based on the Chevrolet Advance Design series of pickups.

Beginning in 1953, the Hydra-Matic 4-speed automatic transmission was available in GMC models and in the 1954 model year Chevrolet Suburbans.

Models with rear panel doors were designated “3106,” while those with tailgates were designated “3116.”

In 1952, the Suburban came with either a tail gate or panel doors. The front bench seat was split, with two seats on the driver’s side and a single seat on the passenger side, which slid forward for access to the rear two rows of seats.

The second row was a “2/3” seat, requiring occupants to move past the front passenger seat, as well as the second row seats to access the third row.

This was the last series to feature “Canopy express” models.

The design of the 1949 Suburban would inspire the design of the Chevrolet HHR over half a century later.

THE REAL ORIGINAL BATCAVE REVEALED! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 598

THE REAL ORIGINAL BATCAVE! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 598 – Fireball, Ken and Kathie head to Bronson Canyon to visit the real original Batcave from the 1966 Batman TV Series. Also, climb to the peak of the Hollywood Sign!

From Wiki… The BATCAVE is a fictional subterranean location appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. It is the secret headquarters of the superhero Batman, the alternate identity of playboy Bruce Wayne, consisting of a series of subterranean caves typically depicted as being beneath his residence, Wayne Manor.

The 1960s live-action Batman TV series featured the Batcave extensively, and portrayed it as a large but well-lit cavern containing an atomic power generator, a chemistry lab, punch-card computers, and other electronic crime-fighting devices, almost always prominently labeled with their function.

In this incarnation, it primarily served as a crime lab and garage for the Batmobile. Perhaps the most famous aspect of this Batcave is that it is accessed from Wayne Manor via two Bat-Poles (one marked BRUCE and the other marked DICK), which are hidden behind a bookcase that can be opened by turning a switch hidden inside a bust of Shakespeare.

The actual cave that the Batmobile is shown emerging from (and sometimes entering) in the TV show is located in the man-made filming location known as the “Bronson Caves,” in Griffith Park, below the Hollywood Sign.

The HOLLYWOOD SIGN (formerly the Hollywoodland Sign) is a landmark and American cultural icon located in Los Angeles, California. It is situated on Mount Lee, in the Hollywood Hills area of the Santa Monica Mountains. The sign overlooks Hollywood, Los Angeles.

“HOLLYWOOD” is spelled out in 45-foot (13.7 m)-tall white capital letters and is 350 feet (106.7 m) long. It was originally created in 1923 as an advertisement for a local real estate development, but it garnered increasing recognition after the sign was left up.

The sign was a frequent target of pranks and vandalism, but it has since undergone restoration, including the installation of a security system to deter vandalism. The sign is protected and promoted by The Trust For Public Land, a nonprofit organization, while its site and the surrounding land are part of Griffith Park.
