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.





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 :)

1939 SS Jaguar starts after 20 years in bits
http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/ssjaguar.htm http://www.scottpeter.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ss_jaguar.htm 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 trim. Video recorded 1993.

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.





1978 Peterbilt 359 started up after 8 years of sitting
My old Peterbilt had been sitting for 8 years. We thought we had better fire it up before any more time went by, so we primed the fuel lines with fuel and rounded up four old car batteries, gave the glow plugs 20 seconds to warm things up - - - and she fired right up - - this is Part 1 - - first firing after 8 years. It is a Cat 3406-A engine

Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
