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.
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
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.
Vauxhall 10 - First start 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
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... :-)
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!
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.

DeLorean #4772 started for first time in 18 years - www.delorean.co.uk
My 7th project DeLorean bursts into life after a complete engine tear-down
due to water ingress. A corroded liner was replaced and its rotten seat was
welded up and machined. The valves were all cleaned and re-lapped in with
new seals, and the heads were skimmed. As you can see, one item was
neglected in the reassembly...! The big puff of smoke at the start is due
to all the assembly oil burning off.
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
