    Not every day you get to talk to the guy who screwed you on a deal. If you saw it had a 5.3 truck engine in it, you wouldn't have bought it. But also, ruby the 8 second vette would have never happened

    So I decided to go back and watch some old videos and came across this one, I really think that you need to call this guy and have him come drive old ruby now. I think he would enjoy running an 8 second pass in her and see how well you built it.

    That car is going to be a money pit . Trying to fix it will be like pouring money down the drain.
    One issue after another. Those cars are known for all types of electrical problems I know I had one. That's why the previous owner dumped it.

    You could have used a little grease when you got fd when you bought it and it was struck by lightning so I'd call it greased lightning

    Funny thing is people think a lightning bolt can jump 5~10 miles, but that it can't jump a few inches from the car to the ground... The tyres do nothing to protect the occupants or the car from a lightning the strike. The occupants are protected because it acts like a faraday cage.

    4:20 dude realizes he fried his own car and you can see it hit him. Cleetus figured it out immediately when he told the story. I bet old dude never even thought about it.

    Tires do NOT protect anything from damage on a car struck by lightning. A 2” tall gap from the rims to the ground are nothing to the air gap between the cloud and ground.

    your tires will not stop your car from being damaged by lightning. I had an Oldsmobile that was struck by lightning . it's either traveled from my car to the one park next to it or the other way around but both of them fried.

    This dude has no idea about grounding and electricity. He looked puzzled that a car with tires could be struck by lightning and remain fine.

    If your car was struck by lightning, you would prefer it on jack stands rather than tires, right? I mean, the quickest way to get rid of electricity is to give it a ground path and that would be the jack stands, no?
