Monster Garage 2005 Dodge Magnum Train Car

Monster Garage 2005 Dodge Magnum Train Car
13,500.00 USD
Offered For Sale at the: Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction January, 2008, Scottsdale, Arizona Barrett-Jackson Auction Company 7400 E Monte Cristo Ave Scottsdale, AZ 85260 Phone: 480-421-6694 Facsimile: 480-421-6697 Website: www.barrett-jackson.com Monster Garage 2005 Dodge Magnum Train Car 13,500 LotNumber 1532 Jesse has had the idea on his list of turning a fast car into train since Monster Garage began. The Dodge Train Car was transformed from a 2005 Dodge Magnum RT complete with HEMI into a speeding train. The hydraulics on this car includes a 12-volt DC motor, 1.25-gallons-per-minute pump, two-station parallel manifold, directional control valve, crossover relief valve, pilot-operated check valve and cylinders powered by nitrogen accumulators. Note: The hydraulic system was "overbuilt" due to safety concerns. The moving parts include an arm system attached to the frame, body and fender for the train wheels. The heavy load-bearing arm system that holds the four train wheels required strong vertical up-weave welds. MIG and TIG welds were both used on the "cow-catcher" in the front. Using an engine lathe, the team machined a new train wheel from a blank block of steel. The team also removed the Dodge's rear storage area to fit the hydraulic system and did minor fender work to make room for the train wheels. The team's biggest challenge was designing and assembling the train car without having the wheels available, which didn't arrive until the last day of the build. THE DESIGNERS: Jesse James, custom-bike builder/designer, West Coast Choppers, Long Beach, CA, Joe Nemmer, railroad-restoration specialist, Sonora, CA, Tony Settelmeyer, hydraulics expert, Corona, CA, and Kenny Youngblood, graphic artist and car designer, Henderson, NV.

Jesse and his team took on the task of converting your mom's old station wagon, (the old long cars driving all around suburbia before the days of minivans and SUV's) and turned it into one killer Monster Garage creation. And, to celebrate the series and phenomenon that is Monster Garage, all the best builders from the last four years tackled this project. This all-star team of fabricators, welders, engine guys and automotive wizards made this the most penultimate build ever to hit the air, and the street. The team chopped the top 3 1/2", which turned out to be the biggest challenge. The builders did not want to make the Oldsmobile look squashed and they wanted to keep the profile correct to the design by making the car look as streamlined as possible. The body was then sectioned 4"; the front fenders were raised 2". The Oldsmobile headlights were frenched, as well as the Oldsmobile taillights. Slanted door posts and c-pillars were also crafted. The roof center was lowered and sectioned 2 extra". Scoops were cut into the front of the quarter panels, and 1953 mercury side spears were added. The wagon also includes "dual frenched" antennas. VEHICLE SPECS: Height: 52"; Width: 67"; Length: 189"; Ground Clearance: Variable. With the air bags deflated, you could squash a cigarette butt. Weight: Approximately 3,200 pounds. Hydraulics: 4-wheel air ride suspension with triangulated 4-link in rear was added, along with an A-arm suspension with air bags in front. The air bags are controlled by a remote control unit. Special Welds: The body was Mig welded. The roof was hammer welded with some additional Tig welding on the chassis. Moving Parts: A Fuel Injected Chevy LS1 out of a late model Corvette was installed with an estimated 475hp engine. The rear end is a Ford rear end with a 3:55 gear ratio. Additional Acquired or Machined Parts: CNC machined hydraulic clutch and brake master combo, handmade grille shell and grille, custom-made driveshaft and gear shifter. The rims were also custom machined by Oasis Wheels.

Its compact and vintage design make this Rat Rod so unique. Sold on a Bill of Sale only. Special conditions apply. Description Monster Garage invaded the shop class at the Texas School for the Deaf. With Jesse James as your teacher, you can imagine the kind of assignment you will be given. The nearly all deaf team, comprised of two teachers and six students under the guidance of professor Jesse James created the ultimate rough and rowdy, rusted roadster, just in time for the weekend. The team was given the frame of a 1932 Ford roadster to start. While the kids attended classes during the day, Jesse set out to find the perfect body for the car. From a local, he received a body of a 1929 Model A roadster pick-up. The students had no idea what they were in for. To get the body attached to the frame, the frame had to be pinched. So the cross member of the frame was cut so that the body would slide on. After the body was in place, the cross member was welded back to the frame. Additional cutting and welding also included lowering the window frame of the car, and mounting the 350hp Chevy engine to the frame. The team had a little trouble finding rear axel plates that fit, without correct plates, the wheel, and all hell, would break loose. On the final day of the build, determined to finish on time, the students took the wheels off an inoperable car in the parking lot of their school and placed them on their custom roadster. After the initial start-up, and a little bit of fireworks, The Rat Rod was completed. "These guys are dangerous," exclaims Jesse as the team controls a small garage fire. THE TEAM: Jesse James, custom-bike builder/designer, West Coast Choppers, Long Beach, CA, Mickey Jasso, TSD Senior, Bryon Terell, TSD Senior, Greata Cole, TSD Sophomore, Michael Anglin, TSD Senior, Mickey Thomas, TSD Sophomore, Caleb Goodpastor, After School Program Hearing Student, Austin High, Keith Baker, Welding Teacher, TSD, and Donald Pekar, Auto Mechanic Teacher.

Sold on a Bill of Sale only. Special conditions apply. Description Monster Garage do something strange and obscure!? Never! Okay so we lied. Jesse took a 1997 Ford F-150 and monsterized it into a tree shaker. Using a hydraulically powered clamp and rotating mass device, this harvesting device latches onto a tree, shakes vigorously, then collects the falling nuts in an umbrella, all without damaging the tree. Able to shake up to three trees a minute, this machine has revolutionized the agricultural industry. The main component of this build was an 800 lb hydraulically powered shaker head, custom-made for Monster Garage by Orchard Machinery Corporation. The team removed the bed so the head could be mounted directly onto the truck's rear frame. To hold the 800 lb device, the team reinforced the pickup's frame with steel and created a 4-link suspension system, which included 2,500 lb air bags. As directed by Jesse, the team went on to build a canopy to catch the falling nuts (and fruit) from the tree as well as a conveyer belt to take the captured produce to a hopper. The finished tree shaker became one of the most successful builds in Monster Garage history. The biggest challenge was: running the hydraulic pump off the engine and constructing the conveyer belt and nut-catcher structure. THE TEAM: Jesse James, custom-bike builder/designer, West Coast Choppers, Long Beach, CA, Russ Angold, agricultural engineer, San Luis Obispo, CA, Tim Beghoefer, hydraulics technician/ journeyman mechanic, Milwaukee, WI, Mike Pittinger, mechanical engineer/underwater welder, Baltimore, MD, Tom Prewitt, custom painter, Damon's Motorcycle Creations, Brea, CA, Dan Robinson, farm equipment repairman/welder, Omaha, NE, and Ralph Westerhoff, service manager, Orchard Machinery Corporation, Tulare, CA.

Monster Garage 1975 Datsun 210 Honey Bee Drifter
6,000.00 USD
Offered For Sale at the: Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction January, 2008, Scottsdale, Arizona Barrett-Jackson Auction Company 7400 E Monte Cristo Ave Scottsdale, AZ 85260 Phone: 480-421-6694 Facsimile: 480-421-6697 Website: www.barrett-jackson.com Monster Garage 1975 Datsun 210 Honey Bee Drifter 6,000 LotNumber 64 Summary Floats like a butterfly, and stings like a 1975 Datsun 210 Honey Bee With the help of a 280hp engine from a brand new Nissan 350Z, this car is sure to "bee" one sweet-as-honey drifter. Sold on a Bill of Sale only. Special conditions apply. Description For those of you unfamiliar with the sport, drifting calls for a high-powered car with enough rear-wheel power to slide sideways through corners at high speeds. Some compare it to Rally racing, but in drifting the winner isn't the first to cross the finish line. Rather, judges determine who wins based on execution and style. All drifting competitions take place on closed courses where racers maneuver their cars into spectacular power slides around corners. To successfully execute this type of racing, a driver must figure out the balance of the car's engine power, gears, brakes and steering to go beyond the normal limits of the suspension and tire traction. That said, Monster Garage took a classic 1975 Datsun 210 Honey Bee and transformed it into a drift car with the help of a 280hp engine from a brand new Nissan 350Z. Mario Lozano, Nissan specialist and certified engine guru stated that the steering was probably the more difficult aspects to the vehicle. Lozano also dealt with having to fabricate without any drawings or dimensions and a time limit. The team also shared the joy of fitting the new 280hp Nissan 350Z engine into the little Datsun and completing all of the wiring. Jesse, and the rest of the team finished the Honey Bee on time, and the end product was a bee-utiful drift car. THE DESIGNERS: Jesse James, custom-bike builder/designer, West Coast Choppers, Long Beach, CA, Toshi Hayama, vice president, A'PEX Co. Ltd., Orange, CA, Robin Scott Hoot, transportation designer, Pasadena, CA, and Naoto Negishi, engine expert and fuel-management specialist, Irvine, CA.

Special Welds: The team performed special welds on the engine mounts, steering linkage and roll cage. In addition, Mario welded an aluminum piece for the throttle body that fit onto the plate Naoto fabricated. Additional Acquired or Machined Parts: Includes a silver-plated machined part for the throttle. Body Modifications: The team modified the Datsun's front end by cutting out a large piece behind the grill and modifying the engine compartment to fit the new radiator. They also welded in a piece of stainless steel to connect to the exhaust system.

And its engine? A Rolls Royce Viper MK22 that generates 6,300 pounds of thrust. "The biggest technical challenge was converting the suspension from wheel-driven to thrust-driven. But no, there was never a time when anyone was worried about being able to complete this challenge," Segal Motorsports owner Jerry Segal said. Segal was asked to participate after being recommended by the National Hot Rod Association. In addition to the suspension, the frame of the car needed to be extended 30" to build the sub-frame to mount the 640lb behemoth engine. Body modifications included removing the stock engine, dash and seats and lengthening the Celica's body. Jesse and his team also built a supporting sub-frame and network for the jet engine and fuel system, a roll bar around the driver's seat and parachute tubes. THE TEAM: Jesse James, custom-bike builder/designer, West Coast Choppers in Long Beach, CA, Joe Ruggless, racecar driver, Lockheed Martin Skunk Works in Palmdale, CA, Marty Schwerter, Toyota Pro-Celebrity Celica project manager, Toyota Grand Prix in Huntington Beach, CA, Ralph Snider, jet-car builder and truck driver from Mcloud, OK, Jerry Segal, owner, Segal Motorsports in Las Vegas, NV and Ben Wood, fabricator and assistant manager, Monster Garage in San Jacinto, CA.

In 2002, Monster Garage took it to the ice and made a Chevy Impala Zamboni. The trunk opens up with a flip of a switch and an additional steering wheel emerges as well as a conveyor belt and auger. Additional acquired parts include a 36" blade, auger, conveyor belt, motor, water tank, extended drive shaft, extended accelerator pedal and brake pedal, auto-lock 12" linear actuator to open trunk and studs for tires. Major body modifications include rear-corner windows sealed and two holes in hood for exhaust pipes. The biggest challenges for the team were making the mechanism to hold the auger and blade, the steering box and extended steering shaft to allow Jesse to drive the car from the rear and making device to adjust the blade. With the help of Richard Zamboni, the team made a water-conditioning unit to clean the ice once the blade shaved it, positioned an auger behind the blade to gather the shaved ice and designed a conveyor belt to lift the shaved ice and dispose of it into the car. Each of these components is located under the trunk and once the car drives into the rink, the blade is pressed into the ice by lowering the car using custom air bags. When the car is resurfacing the ice, it is operated and driven from the back. To achieve this, the mechanics extended an additional steering wheel as well as additional brake and accelerator pedals to the trunk. With a flip of a switch, the trunk lifts and the additional steering wheel and back seat rise up ready to resurface. With its sleek Purple Candy Apple paint coat, purple neon floor lights, studded tires and dual exhaust pipes throwing flames from the hood, this monster machine is sure to change the face of all ice-resurfacing machines.

The team created and customized a rear frame section that was designed to fit within the body of the Champ Car. This proved a difficult task according to team member John Gregory of Gregory Racing Fabrications. "Making the rear frame section and fastening it to the tub of the Champ Car. Because these cars don't have a chassis we had to start from scratch. I thought it would be very hard to do in the time we had to do it." For Jesse and his team, the biggest challenge was constructing a frame for the Champ Car and fastening it to a carbon-fiber tub capable of holding a Ford motor, a B&M transmission and a dragster differential. Another challenge was mounting a sizeable airless paint pump to the car.

Usually. In the first episode of "Monster Garage", Jesse and his team transform a 1994 Eddie Bauer Edition Ford Explorer into a tricked-out trash truck. Jesse bet $500 that this design to transform a Ford Explorer into a garbage truck wouldn't work. He lost. How can a 1994 Ford Explorer house enough equipment to make this one killer garbage crusher? Garbage equipment and storage take space, so the team started their transformation by pulling out the Explorer's back seat. They then installed a customized hydraulically powered metal arm (designed and redesigned many, many times) to grab garbage cans and empty them into a receptacle that included a hydraulic crusher to compact the trash. The roof was cut and fitted it with a hinge and a hydraulic system to lift it up, creating room for the arm to pick up cans and dump their trash. Under its hood the Explorer has a 21hp, 4Liter V6 engine and automatic transmission. Since most trash trucks are all trash and no flash, Jesse decided that this mechanical monstrosity deserved a new sleek look. Its mechanical metamorphosis complete, the Explorer got an extreme makeover from House of Kolor, beginning with a primer sealer coat and white base coat. Two coats of Ice White Pearl were added and a silver base coat followed. Then silver metal-flake flames were applied to the vehicle, and a final clear coat of paint. KMC wheels rounded out the package. The end product was indeed a success. If you thought your garbage cans were in danger before, you should see them being picked up by this monster machine. "I can't believe this actually worked." Jesse James.
