    Found a couple of cool old movies about cars on Netflix! Both discuss the automobile revolution, and are on instant stream!

    Horatio's drive - the first road trip across america.

    The Early Days of The Automobile - hosted by Groucho Marx!!

    If you guys find anymore post em up, their search function pretty much sucks unless you know the name of the movie!

    I am so proud of Chad. He has nothing better to do than watch Netflix. That must mean the projects are all done? Which show are you off to next?

    I'm kinda worried about Chad. Does anyone on here have a sister he could go out with? Looks are not important. Nor is size.......just needs to be female please.....

    There was a ton of original early 1900's footage on Horatio's drive... Pretty cool, to travel across america without roads!!

    I caught part of 'Horatio's drive' on PBS a while back, ended up buying the DVD.

    Worth every penny!

    iv seen the one with marx.. also if you search hotrod in netflix.. American classic will come up.. granted mostly muscle cars. but the story on the early vet, the 409, etc.. worth watching even for hotroders who are not into muscle cars.. just for drooling over all the engines :D

    also, the episode on the hurst cars has linda in it.. the history on the hemi/drag racing.. maxwedge.. now i think about it. lots of cool stuff in that series.. :)

    Well unfortunately I've got it on the back burner... I bought another rear half out of colorado to help take care of the rust issues mine had in the Belt lines. So, once I get that (it's at Povertyflats house) I'll be able to get the rust issues taken care of and get it to the body shop! Thanks for asking!

    at least I sent an apologetic PM and offered to delete my post. I guess you must be upset because I used your plaque for a floor board in my new ratrod.
