1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.

Indiana Classic Car Barn Find
Purchased from an estate. These cars were in a heated garage since new.
They had a caretaker that kept the garage heated at all times.
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
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
We recently acquired this RARE (1 of 252, or 1 of 180 if you compare with

found it...another video will be coming soon
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!
The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873,
Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen
(or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first
purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to
be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the
Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German
patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.

Original Barn find 1968 GT500 Shelby
This car is completely original down to the tires! This one of a kind find
has never been washed since resurfacing from an undisclosed location in
Georgia. This Shelby is a true barn find and yes, it does start and is
driven on and off it's enclosed trailer to various car shows. The seats
have been changed back to the original ones that came in the car along with
all the SHELBY letters that are missing. The car is a rare automatic.
