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.

Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,

This is the story behind how i got the car and as a bonus a look at just

at least the worst car that someone plans to do something with. just what i
plan to do is still between me and a few tubers but this plan will soon be
uploaded. A special thanks to itsOnlyMeBilly for requesting this video and
some others which i will upload and make soon :)
'56 White 9000TD: First Start in 18 Years
It took my brother, my dad, and myself the better part of a day to get
everything tuned up and repaired so that we could fire up my 1956 White
9000TD for the first time in 18 years. It only took two sniffs of ether
(one for each start up) to get it running. We ran it for almost an hour
while checking over everything, starting and stopping it to see how it
started on diesel only, to fill the oil system back up, and to check out
the hydraulics (no clutch yet, started it up with the hydraulics in gear).
