Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before shooting the vid!
joeys 1970 pontiac lemans sport
Almost a ground up on this beauty. 1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport. All original 350 engine with 350 automatic trans. Bermuda blue paint job with black interior. Man I miss this car. Video is a little choppy by the Exhaust sound.
1968 Pontiac Lemans project
I traded my red 1961 F100 for this car in December. I liked the truck but it was so difficult to drive. No power steering, brakes, or A/C. So here I have a very cool cruiser. Leaving it mostly stock, no loud mufflers or go fast bolt ons except for the HEI ignition and Edelbrock intake and carburator.
1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport
Just a quick video of me pulling my car out of the parking lot.. It's a 1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport with the original 350 engine, TH 350 transmission, and the original 10 bolt peg leg rear end. It has 81,000 original miles. It went through a frame off restoration recently in which evrything was powder coated. It also sports a new paint job and a GTO hood. It also has some not original stuff which includes a holley 600 cfm vacuum secondary carburetor, edelbrock aluminum intake, and Pypes 2.5" stainless steel x-pipes with low restriction mufflers. Unfortunately I'm missing the rear Pontiac emblem on the trunk lid does anyone know where I can find one, Ive tried year one and performance years but its not remade. The noise at 2:28 is because I hit the steering lock nothing serious. I didnt push on it too hard because the powertrain is 40 years old and in really good shape and I'd like it to last. This is not a trailer queen or a museum piece thats never driven. I drive it as much as possible because its meant to be enjoyed. If you like old muscle cars and would like to get into the hobby the Lemans is still relatively inexpensive and can be dressed up to look like a GTO. This car is my pride and joy and I hope to never sell it so please enjoy.
1939 SS Jaguar starts after 20 years in bits
I only put 1 gallon of petrol in her tank and after an initial few kicks she refused to start until it dawned on me that I needed to pull out the petrol reserve tap. The engine has no timing marks and she spits back due to being far too far advanced. She's also very tappety.
The drive out of the garage was my first experience of driving her and the street scene was the first time of her being out on the public highway. At this stage she had a very noisey rear axle and gearbox and no interior trim.
Video recorded 1993.
