after 30 years of sitting
this is a 1957 VW bug Vert that has sat since 1978. tring to get it started. so close but it was getting late.





1951 Ford wrecker pulling antique cars out of barn Pt2
1955 Olds Super 88 coming out of barn on cable; any brakes that were stuck slid on the oil tracks we spread on the concrete; it had been parked in there since 1983 when I drove it in 25 years ago.





Barn Find 1968 Euro Beetle, First Start.
This is her first attempted startup in 21 years! Of course before I tried it, I poured Marvel Mystery Oil in the upper cylinders, filed and gapped the points, rebuilt the carburetor, and replaced the fuel pump, plugs, and wires. Still it impressed me that it fired up after all those years of sitting. Pulled this old bug from a barn in rural Oklahoma, where it sat unmoved for over two decades. You just can't kill these old VWs. Thanks for watching.





An abrupt end to the 1962 VW project
I spent the morning working on trying to free up the rear wheels. Heated them, soaked them in oil, and yarned on 'em till I was sore. Then I thought of a wonderful solution! hahahaha.. Now on with the rest of my life..





Fresh Barn Find 69 GTO 4spd
Another new toy 69 GTO fresh barn find. This is a matching numbers WT 400 4spd GTO that has been off the road since 1982. Copyright 2008 minnesota-muscle.com





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!





1947 Vauxhall 10 - first drive in 41 years
I'm afraid this is now for sale. Have a look at eBay and you will see - have a bid if you would like to own it. I'm afraid I just don't have time to do the work (and won't be hppy with a rough job if I rushed it) so it will have to go. See http://www.abs-zero.com (click through to 'the old site') and also the listing on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200946082683 (starts 9pm on Wed 24th July 2013). Thank you to everyone who has looked at this and taken the time to write a nice comment - they really have been appreciated. :-) I still own the other Vauxhall 10 and will keep that a while longer as it's already part restored. If anyone wants to see it, I'll make a similar video and upload it. My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to my two boys will have to wait a while... :-) If you've seen my other video of this car you will know I bought it after it had been stored in a barn for over 40 years. I have since rebuilt the front brakes and needed to turn it around in the garage to get better access to the rear brakes to rebuild them too. Unfortunately the starting of the engine is missed off the clip, but as I've now rebuilt the fuel pump and put new fuel in the tank, starting up is pretty easy - pull out the choke, turn on the ignition and press the starter. There's still no coolant in the engine, hence why I turned off the engine before stopping. This is the first time I've attempted to drive it at all, so a big moment for me. Hope you enjoy it, feel free to comment if you like.





1973 Trans-Am SD BARN FIND
**UPDATE** This car has been sold and shipped to its new owner in June 2010. We were sad to see it go, but had fun watching everyones comments about this car. We sold it in the same condition, having only detailed the car. We recently acquired this RARE (1 of 252, or 1 of 180 if you compare with automatics) 1973 SUPER DUTY with only 49,000. This is the car exactly as we found it...another video will be coming soon





Oval Window Beetles - BugsVille Large Collection and Barn Finds
BugsVille was a place of wonder and was by far the largest collection of Oval Window Bugs most have seen in one place. The place was nick named Bugsville because there were so many VW's, and in one photo I took I counted 22, most of which were Oval Windows. It was located in Southwestern Ontario Canada just outside Tillsonburg before the car crushers came in and squashed them all. This is just such a waste of history to have them rust away then ultimately be destroyed. If anyone has any more photos or stories about this place let me know as I would love to see and hear about it! These photos are at least 12 years old now and I thought it was time to put them in a video.

My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to my two boys will have to wait a while... :-) --- My new project - I bought this in September 2008 as a barn find - it had been stored in a barn for over 40 years. This is the first time anyone has attempted to run it, note the 6V electrical system being Boosted by a 12V jump pack - OK for short periods if the 6V battery is good. The fuel system is still unproven at this point, so running was achieved by pouring a small amount of fuel directly down the carburettor - there's no reason why it shouldn't fire up straight away in normal use, but here it presumably starts out flooded. Oh the joys of carburettored engines!





Buried Belvedere Lid Removal 2
Tulsa's Buried Belvedere Lid Section #2 being removed. These are some of the first glimpses of the car that had been buried 50 years. "On June 15, 2007, a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere buried in Tulsa, Oklahoma during the 1957 Tulsarama! was freed from its concrete vault under the Tulsa Courthouse lawn." from: http://www.unburiedcar.com/ Music: Link Wray And The Raymen - The´╗┐ Law Of The Jungle

1919 Buick First start since 1952
This is the first startup of this 1919 buick six roadster that had been sitting in a barn in ohio since 1952. It was parked there with a bad differential. My boss bought it on Ebay and i gently disassembled the engine, cleaned out the 50+ year old oil, freed up the piston rings and put it back together. I had to substitute a newer coil to get a strong spark and had manually filled the float bowl of the carburetor. No fuel pump was hooked up or water in the engine hence the short run time. This is a very cool early overhead valve engine with an aluminum crankcase,cast iron cylinder block, roller tappets, exposed valvetrain, zero gap piston rings, and electric start. This car had about 14,000 miles on the odometer. Enjoy the video! Check out my other video/slide show for engine disassembly pictures.
