1967 Chrysler Newport First Start After Sitting For 20 Years
I went to check out this car because it was advertised as having a "valuable 440" which I wanted to rebuild and put in my 73 Challenger. When I got there I found out it was a 383 2 bbl car in incredible shape with 69990 original miles. It had belonged to his grandfather and was parked in 1990/1991 and never started since, nor was it ever registered in anyone else's name, so I am technically the second owner. It wasn't what I came for but I had to take it home. This is a video diary of getting this great old girl running and will probably only be enjoyed by true car enthusiasts. November 28, 2012 Update: I haven't been here in quite a while and at first I was a bit dismayed that there are so many lonely aholes in our world and how they tend to flock to the internet. I considered pulling the video but realized there are many people who enjoyed it and that is who I posted it for. To all of those experts who know so much more than the rest of us please keep your negative comments to yourself. To those of you who say I should have done more before trying to start, I did. - The previous owner had pulled the car out of the field with a tractor and his buddy "may have" put the car in gear to slow it down. If the rings were rusted the engine could have been destroyed by that action alone, there was some resistance when I turned the crank pulley over by hand and I was surprised it turned over that easily, but with the engine sitting that long the rings would not be sealing to build up pressure in the cylinders. Therefore I concluded that there was no rusting/seizing so no risk of cylinder wall damage, or that the engine was possibly toast due to "transmission/engine braking" - The oil was not milky, still "felt" oily and I only planned on running the engine 2-3 minutes to get it off the trailer and onto my hoist to do all the fluids, so I determined it had enough viscosity left to protect it for a short period of time. - Even an old fuel filter will stop any major contaminants from reaching the carb. So why spend a bunch of money, with the steps I took the chance of me causing any damage at all was miniscule. For those who were so concerned about our safety, come on. We grew up on a farm before the days of fuel injection and many farm vehicles do not get regularly started so this is a very common practice. The risk is MINIMAL and calculated, note that there is a fire extinguisher at 8:43 in the lower left corner on the trailer. The jerry can is very full by design, gas liquid does not ignite but the vapours do, note that when the gas starts to come out of the spigot that the top of the jerry can is full of gas, not fumes! I don't believe at any time was my brothers face over the carb, these big old girls are so big you pretty well have to stand in the engine compartment to do that. We did our best to slowly feed the engine as little gas as possible to avoid flooding the engine and possibly causing her to backfire. Anyways, I guess I shouldn't feel like I need to defend myself against a bunch of morons who obviously have nothing better to do with their time than to creep youtube videos so they can leave moronic comments that allow them to feel all high and mighty ... but at least it might stop a few from wasting our time as we try to enjoy videos of common interest. Thanks to all for the positive comments and feedback.

1991 Rover 214Si starting after 3 years off the road
My Dads old beloved old 1991 Rover 214Si starting up. He drove it home and it was parked up in 2005 when his new car arrived after 142,000 faultless miles. She still went like a dream but had suffered an accident (collision with a drunken priest!) in the mid 90s and the poorly repaired paintwork was letting it down so unfortunately it wasnt really worth repairing :( Its been started occasionally... but how easy will it be after the winter?

1966 Mercedes-Benz 250SE 4spd Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1966 Mercedes Benz 250SE. It has a 2.5L L6 engine with a 4 spd manual transmission. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle. Thanks to jrosa1282 for this additional info on the history of this great car! The 250SE was a new offering from M-B for 1966, and was the first of what was known as the "New Generation" body/chassis, also known as the W108. This car would later spawn the classic 280SE 4.5 and 300SEL 6.3 sedans. In '66, a new 250SE retailed for about $6,550. In comparison, a new Chevy Corvair started at around $2,140, and an Austin-Healey Sprite cost $1,995. So these Benzes were not cheap in the day. (Goose Creek Auto Werks) The 250 SE was first introduced in 1965 and was built through 1968. It has independent front and rear suspension with four wheel power assist disc brakes. The engine is a straight 6 cylinder 2.5 liter with overhead cam and fuel injection. Power output is 170 hp at 5,600 revolutions per minute. This vehicle has about 70k on a factory short block and valve job. This Auto is black on black and has an older restoration job. The front and rear windshield weather strips were replaced then as were all the door weather strips and window channel. The head liner was replaced wih a factory OE kit. The seats and woodwork need repair. Recent repairs include a new water pump, fuel gauge sending unit and OE trunk mat. The rear brake calipers have been rebuilt with new disc and pads, and new pads on the front brakes. This is a classic Mercedes Benz, in design and style.





Start up 1963 Ford Galaxie
This car sat for decades in a field in Eastern Tenn. until I brought it home. The engine has been rebuilt, and, after fiddling with the car for five years in my garage, I've assembled the Start Up Team: Papa is on the fire extinguisher, John is the key man, Tom is lending moral support via Skype from NY....and me? I play the tambourine!
