Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years
ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough
looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been
tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase
fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine
purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous
owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every
1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes,
but we will take care of that at a later date.
Old Church Bus found abandoned in woods
We came across this old school bus close to our property, and the land
owner said we could have it and the contents.. It turned out to be a bigger
job than we thought, as it took us all day to blaze a road and uncover the
vines and tree roots that had grown into it.. We'll have to come back later
to get it with bigger equipment.

'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.
'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).
old chevy truck Wanna go for a ride?
See my field find 63 impala videos. This old truck has to make all the
noises and creeks it does when driving, its music to my ears and I would
have to take it back to the dealer,lol, and complain, if just one of those
noises went away. Listen to the noise those big gears make.
59' Hayes first start in 10yrs
This is my 59' Hayes Clipper 220 Cummins first start in 10 plus years. Put
a couple batteries in it and she whirled right over and fired.
D8H 36A First start in ten years
This Caterpillar hasn't been started for ten years because of a broken pony
engine. We made replaced pony motor with a hydraulic motor to get it
started. Starting the main engine required almost ten minutes of cranking
and some ether.
