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!
Fire up - cold start of a Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer
Firing up my 1976 Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer after two months having
stood in the garage... Note the flame after the backfire!
The procedure for a cold engine is as follows:
Twist the ingnition key to the first position. You will hear the clicking
of the fuel pumps as they start delivering fuel to the carburetors. After
approximately 15 to 20 seconds, pump the accellerator pedal to the floor
four or five times, squirting lots of fuel into the intakes. Then, while
holding the accellerator pedal about a third of the way down, twist the
ignition key to the start position. You will hear a deep, exiting,
expolding bark as the engine comes to life, accompanied by significant
quantities of smoke out of the Exhaust
tips, as the oil that hs been resting in the cylinders is burnt. If the
ambient temperture is cold and the car has not been driven for a while, the
engine may die, necessitating a repeat of the above-described prodecure.
Once started, the rpms should be kept at 2,000 until the smoke clears,
usually in about two to three minutes.
Out on the open road, at low to mid-throttle, the moaning and slurping
sound of the Webers is the dominant sensation. When the throttle is opened
wide, the result is a massive roar and a seamless delivery of power. The
smooth power delivery is deceptive as a glance at the speedometer usually
reveals speeds greater than expected. The sound of the engine when extended
is exciting and is similar to the sounds emanating from Jody Scheckter's
and Gilles Villeneuve's Formula One flat-12s!
Dodge Challenger '70 first start in 4 months
Dodge Challenger '70
First start in 4 months.
Old gas, no choke.
Driven last time about 10 months ago.
Doesn't run very well when cold, gets alot better after running for a
couple of minutes. Would prefer it with choke.
1978 Peterbilt 359 started up after 8 years of sitting
My old Peterbilt had been sitting for 8 years. We thought we had better
fire it up before any more time went by, so we primed the fuel lines with
fuel and rounded up four old car batteries, gave the glow plugs 20 seconds
to warm things up - - - and she fired right up - - this is Part 1 - - first
firing after 8 years. It is a Cat 3406-A engine
Cold Start the 1972 Chrysler Newport: What's Your Carbon Footprint?
Hi! Time to put the 1972 Chrysler Newport Royal 4 door hardtop into storage
before it gets completely buried. First we gotta get it started. These
babies will leave a big black soot mark wherever you start them, until the
choke heats up and pulls off. I love this car, it drives really well, and
it has been very reliable on long highway trips. I bought this car 10 years
ago to save it from the derby and replaced the front subframe due to rust.
A well maintained car, only two previous owners, mostly original in & out.
Thanks for checking it out.
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!
Cold Start the 1986 Peugeot 505 TD! Brrrr...
Today we're going to try to cold start this 1986 Peugeot 505 turbo Diesel! These cars are known to be a "bit"
cold-blooded for the Canadian North; not many survive around here today.
Cold War Motors just picked up this 5 speed car last week; it had been
sitting outside for years and it needs a basic cosmetic redo. I hope to fix
up this sweet French cruiser next summer, but I wanted to do a Cold Start
for you all first!
Thank you all for watching and subscribing! Lots more old clunker mayhem
'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
Cold Start Challenge! Dec.'14
Hi! Time for some more cold start attempts on a cold day in Canada! This
time we're going to try the 1951 Mercury pickup, a 1950 Massey-Harris 44, a
1979 Ford F250, a 1965 Mustang, and even a 1966 Chevrolet
C30! Most of these rigs hadn't been run in months, so success was far from
certain... I was just hoping anything would start so I could go back inside
and warm up!
Thanks a lot to Agent 223 for sharing his cool collection with us!
Cheers from CWMC!
Please subscribe if you like this kind of thing! T-shirts and dealership
decals coming soon!

Old start/Cold Start Rudy's 1963 Mack B81 w/ 711 Mack Turbo Diesel. First start in 10+ years.
Rudy hauled home his most recent purchase today, a 1963 Mack B81. Two fresh
batteries got it to crank after some tinkering with the terminals. Had to
spray some PB in the turbo and pry it
free with a screwdriver. Started on ether. It's not drawing any fuel at the
moment, that's a project for another day. For now we found out his
contraption is a runner!
Part 2 - See it run on Diesel - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Jff249TwqM
