If you're the DIY-type and happen to have purchased a 2004 - 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo, you may need to complete your first oil change very soon. It's not a daunting task, nearly anybody can do it, including five-year-old Marcus, proclaimed Kindergarten Mechanic. Watch as he walks you through how to complete the very first oil change on your new supercar.



Now, I've wrenched my way around quite a few cars and have driven more than I can count. But I'm pretty sure this kid has me bested in the cool department, and he's only a fifth of my age! His parents seem to be set on promoting a petrolhead future for him, which is completely okay. After all, not only is learning to work on a car a great skill to teach your kids, but working on a Lamborghini might move you up a few notches with your friends (though this Star Wars Landspeeder toy might be a bit more appealing to him right now).

The Game Changer 1966 Ford Mustang

  The Game Changer 1966 Ford Mustang Sometimes in life we just need a change, something different. That could mean a small change to shake things up a bit or maybe a complete change is necessary, which was exactly the case for Vietnam Veteran Tom Soupene. In Tom’s case, his “game changer” came in the form of a 1966 Mustang. Here is a snippet of Tom's story in his own words: Research ford mustang See All Model Years See Pricing "On June 27, 2010, I suffered a traumatic brain stem stroke. I was living in Manhattan, Kansas at the time and was very fortunate to receive the best medical care anyone could ask for.

I personally have never witnessed the process of changing the oil in a Gallardo, but after watching the video, I can definitely say that the oil filter is not in the most friendly location. Nested under the intake manifold, you might need a set of small hands like Marcus' to turn the special oil filter wrench in such a tight spot. He then works the lift to raise the car up and removes not one, but two drain bolts (from the reservoir and motor). He stresses the importance to "not be cheap" and replace the washers on the drain bolts as well (good advice, Marcus). Afterwards, he reinstalls the bolts and filter, then fills the car with fresh Liqui Moly oil to complete the change.

After Marcus revs the car at 2,000 RPM for a bit (presumably to move the oil around the engine's journals without too much stress), you get to check out a few more supercars riding in a pack with the Gallardo, so stick around to give a listen to some great exhaust notes and a little bit of wind noise from the camera. It's fun to see parents get their kids involved with cars, especially since enjoying them is so important. Great job, Marcus.

This 1939 Chevy Dirt-Track Racer Was Reborn As A Street Car! .
Many of us have gazed thoughtfully at purpose-built racecars and pondered what it would be like to drive one on the street, but Michael Hunt took it one step further and actually followed through on that crazy idea. Hunt and the guys down at TredWear Tire Letters have always loved racecars and the idea that you could possibly terrorize the streets in one seemed like the ultimate driving experience to them. So when he came across a neglected 1939 Chevy Coupe that had been bobbed and turned into an open-wheel modified dirt track car at some point in its past he just knew he had to have it.
