    Merry Christmas everyone! Leroy/Neighbor are already being fixed and we found a new engine for Ruby (from a local junkyard). Got the V back up and running so that’s the next vid, then we’re tearing down Ruby’s engine to see the damage... then replacing that 5.3 with another one and going back to get our 10 before we put a built trans in. It’s going to be a BUSY off season lol. Love you guys, new vid on Wednesday!

    I don't know how I even got here. I'm not that much into cars. But I got hooked on the C6 auction car story from the first video, and I been following along like a good story. I am now seriously emotionally attached to Ruby, and shed tears of joy at 3:57 when Cleetus said, "It didn't blow up!" Like I said, I'm not into cars, but it's epic stories like these that turn normal guys into motorheads.

    Turbo and a 200+k non conditioned junkyard motor, there was no other outcome 😂

    I have to thank you for all the ruby clips you guys did. from the auction house to track and finish. Nothing has kept me riveted to youtube lately as much as the ruby footage. TY TY. I wish I could do something like you guys do, but no funds for that in my life. So very happy to see it out of outers.

    But but... That guy who said he was the previous owner said the trans was already built. No way he lied about any of that to get on the show or anything right? right?!?

    16:45I don't think that fluid is supposed to look like chocolate milk like that. Or, you know, be sprayed across the windshield instead of in the engine.

    Poor ruby but hey 5.3s are bad ass ive got or i should say i had an LS 5.3 in a 2000 silverado that is now pushing 992 HP at the rear wheels 5.3s were built to be punished PERIOD.

    Why not pick up a stock LS1 for $3000 rather than keep torturing yourself with POS truck motors? Seriously that's all it needs and you have yourself a real 'vette; why go cheap when you've got everything else already?

    That's what happens when you punish a 200k+ engine, I'm just surprised it didn't blow in the shop. Of course there was no load on the engine. You should've put heavyweight diesel oil in it, it might've went for another round. However you're right about finding another engine for it, maybe you'll get lucky and find a Corvette engine for Ruby, it really sucks that it didn't come with an original equipment engine already. That's the gamble you take when bidding on something sight unseen. Good luck, this was fun to watch. I'm just saying.
