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.

Classic Mini w/ 1380cc engine is running poorly after having been to a

1939 SS Jaguar starts after 20 years in bits
I only put 1 gallon of petrol in her tank and after an initial few kicks
she refused to start until it dawned on me that I needed to pull out the
petrol reserve tap. The engine has no timing marks and she spits back due
to being far too far advanced. She's also very tappety.
The drive out of the garage was my first experience of driving her and the
street scene was the first time of her being out on the public highway. At
this stage she had a very noisey rear axle and gearbox and no interior

Rap 24 hp semidiesel, first start attempt in 20 years.
This engine was built in 1930 or earlier. Have been stored outdoors for the
last 20 years. After spending hours getting all parts movable this is the
first start attempt. Seems to be low start pressure (6.5 bar) and low
capacity in start air hose that is the biggest problem.
Starting the Mini
Hi all, its been a while since I even looked at this Mini let alone start
it. So today I decided to see if she would go, i checked the fuel, oil and
water (which needed to be topped up) before starting the old girl. Long
video, but i wanted to show everything :)
How it's made: MINI Cooper
With its unmistakeable design and undiluted driving fun, the first example
of the classic Mini sparked a revolution in the car market when it entered
the fray in 1959. Then, in 2001, the new MINI emerged from the BMW Group
stable to lead the premium compact class into the new millennium. And now
MINI is poised to set new standards once again when it unveils the latest
incarnation of this iconic car on 18 November 2013.
The new MINI is one thing above all else: a typical MINI -- in its most
concentrated and contemporary form. A car built for individualists, it
whisks the legendary forms of the classic Mini from 1959 into the present
day and takes to the stage with greater presence and maturity than ever.
"The new MINI generation strikes the perfect balance between MINI heritage,
future-defining forms and innovations," says Anders Warming, Head of MINI
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
'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
