1958 Cadillac Runs After 15 Years!
I bought this Cadillac and it hadn't run in 15 years. It was missing the carburetor and the previous owner I guess thought that was the problem. Well, the carb was lost by the mechanic over the years. I borrowed one from a 1963 Pontiac parts car I have. Turns out the fuel pump was bad but I got it running in 20 second spurts with a gravity feed. I used a funnel, a hose and filled it with gasoline. It worked until the gas ran out but it was a good way to test a few things. At least I spark, compression and oil pressure and that all the valves were opening and closing.

starting my 58 cadillac
Just had the camera with me so I turned it on and set it on the seat next to me. It was the first time I've driven my 58 in months.
Classic Cadillac line up with 'tell me why'.
A line up of classic Caddies including a rare 59 Eldorado Seville coupe! That's the pink one i'm walking around. Man these cars need no intro, just look at em'. The song playing low in the backround(starting at 0:25) is 'Tell Me Why' by Norman Fox & the Rob Roys. I added it for a bit more of a nostalgic feel! Filmed at the 2009 American motoring show, Sunday 5th April 2009 at the Flemington Racecourse, in Flemington Victoria(inner Melbourne) Australia. Check my other videos for more ol' Cadillacs and other great classic cars.
Please rate and leave a comment! This video is already about 4 years old and shows the car before we got finished with the rebuilding, so there are still the wrong wheels on it and the motor is not exactly right, but now we got these things already fixed and we'll be making a new video soon, so watch out for it!
