Oh boy. At least seven attempts later...it finally started. It ran and drove pretty good for a free car. The spark plugs came from the white car (see my other videos). I'll need to get a battery and see if I can fix the power steering leak.
Forgotten Grain Truck - Part 4
Can you depend on a Chevrolet, even if it's been neglected and left to sit for over twenty years? Watch and find out! Here is your long-awaited update, at last!
Forgotten Grain Truck
Can this grain truck run again? The keys have disappeared, so the next time I go out to the farm, I'll have to see about hotwiring it.
The Old Cold Forgotten Buick Rides Again
As originally threatened, we are getting this one "road ready" once again. It runs very well, but rust has caused lots of problems. And the power windows are lethargic to say the least.
Also: a sneak peek of what we'll be making a video about next. (As soon as the Keykeeper figures out where he misplaced our camera!)
1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20 years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine. Before starting it we put oil down the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap, Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the immediate future.
Cold Start the 1972 Plymouth Fury! Brrrr...
Hi! Its cold and there's a lot of snow on the ol' 72 Fury. Lets see if it will go. I bought this car about 5 years ago, and I've been using it as a daily driver since then. It shows about 75000 miles, so it should last me a while yet. I like these fuselage models, especially the 72 Fury. Its a mean looking old thing! I actually hit a moose with this car last week, and it didn't leave a mark on the car! No wonder the cops liked these things, they're incredibly tough, even if they are a bit hard to look at. Thanks for checking it out!

Cars that should be driven
They're all long gone. Pretty shame they didn't get the attention they deserved

Will it Run? Bonus: Live Sounds of Dead Cars
I had a request for some live engine sounds with no music...This is the same Dodge 250 c.i. flat head 6 chassis running with 2 different bodies on it. Actually runs pretty good, considering it's been sitting since the 60's, and is still running its original plugs, wires, cap, etc. Thanks for checking it out.
