1980 Mini Convertible - First start in over 10 years
One very, very rusty mini. We bought this little car for spares. The previous owner had carried out all the work to get it back on the road, over 10 years ago - including a full conversion to make it a convertible. Then, he left the car outside and didn't touch it until we towed it away. The fuel lines are ruined - so the fuel had to be literally fed into the engine!

1974 Morris Mini - First start in seven years!
After passing its MOT in 2002, the mini went back into the garage and
hadn't turned a wheel until now.
The engine is a 1400cc MiniSport half engine kit, built by me, and has only
driven about 10 miles.
The digital dashboard is from an MG Maestro, one of several modifications
made in my misguided youth. Note that it doesn't talk... yet!
Oil is fresh, but the fuel isn't. Clearly, the there is more work to be
done to get it running right.

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
Old car 1963 Chevy Bel air, First start since 1997, View of car.
Im 17 years old, this is my 2nd car (you can see my old ford truck in the
video and in my other videos of it). I'm not highly experienced in auto
mechanics but I plan to one day and I think I'm off to a good start!
Anyway, I picked up this car in Wyoming from a gentleman that had this Bel
air sitting in his front yard since 1997, He said it ran perfect when they
parked it, It still needs a new clutch to drive, but amazingly just with a
new battery and pouring a little gas in the carb she fired right up!
1969 220D - First start in 30 years
**Skip to 4:15**
-Cabernet Red on Grey Beige
-Becker Grand Prix
-Shortwave adapter in glove box
After refreshing some fuel lines, 4 gallons of diesel and a new starter
this 220D started with no issues after sitting for 30 some years.
Planning to make this vehicle a presentable daily driver, so it will see
another 30 years.
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.

47772's first start in quite a few years `
47772 started for the first time in some time. this engine has EP start
contactors which is why it stop motoring over after a couple of turns as
the air had got too low. it was a bit sluggish to start with but it soon
clears and settles down nicely with oil pressure of 60 PSI. still plenty
more work to be done on this one before it graces the main line again. But
it should not be too long away
