The Cheetah

Released: 1964

 

In 1964 Carroll Shelby was pretty much stomping everybody on the race track with his brutal Cobras. The Corvettes had not only fallen prey to the Ford powered roadsters, but even Zora Duntov’s Grand Sport program had been cancelled because of the racing ban that GM had. So in a desperate attempt to beat the Cobra’s, GM honcho Vince Piggins met with sports car racer and builder Bill Thomas, and told him Chevy would supply engines and parts if Thomas would build a car that could beat the Cobras.

GearZ on the Road & Beyond the Basic Tools

Premiere: January 23 Velocity and February 26 MAVTV

 

The GearZ crew mount up and head out to visit a young gear-head whose love of wrenching started with 4-wheelers and has grown to include 4-wheel drive pick ups. Young Adam has a few surprises in store as Stacey visits him in his Dad’s garage and discusses tools, storage and tearing apart things to see how they work.   Then, it’s back in the shop as Stacey takes on the big question every gear-head has: What OTHER tools should I have in my box? A look beyond the typical wrenches, hammers and clamps will show you what you may need and what you may not, depending on your project.   Finally, Stacey shows you some tricks on how to bring a tired paint job back to life with the right buffing pads and compounds…..all this and more only on GEARZ!!
