First Corvettes Being Built - 1953
Rare home movies chronicle the first Corvettes going into production. Each
one is built by hand at the GM factory in Flint, Michigan. Only 300
Corvettes were built that first year. All 1953 Corvettes were white with a
red interior, all had Powerglide automatic transmissions mated to 150 HP,
six cylinder engines with three carburetors and dual Exhaust. Of those 300, 255 survived.
Cars that should be driven
They're all long gone. Pretty shame they didn't get the attention they

1959 C1 Corvette Barn Car Unveiled
More of our story on www.vette59.com!
Katharine and her dad "uncover" their Corvette after 25 years of storage in
the barn. This is the first step in getting the car back on the road. The
'vette was purchased by Barry in 1970 from the original owner, and went
into retirement when kids came along. The two are putting her back in
road-ready condition, no NCRS untouchable flatbed riders here.
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.
Totally 100% Original 1980 Trans Am Survivor Barn/Yard Find Sat for 20 Years
This video is the actual first time seeing this car for myself. It was
pulled out from the original owners back yard and pulled to a friends home
until I could get there. This day it was 102 degrees outside so sorry for
all of the puffing going on. This car was going to be scrapped after a
mechanic came to see it and he said this car will never run. Well he was
totally mistaken. Car sat outside for 18 years and its still not a rust
bucket.. We got it running and now working on the carb. UPDATE. WE REBUILT
THE CARB TWICE AND REPLACE THE GAS TANK, ALL GAS LINES, SPARK PLUGS WATER
PUMP, RADIATOR AND 3 BENT PUSH RODS AND 2 BROKEN ONES. SHE NOW IS A DAILY
DRIVER AND RUNS LIKE NEW AND BURNS NO OIL. I HAVE PUT OVER 4,000 MILES ON
HER IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER. GO TO MY PAGE AND YOU
WILL SEE THE OTHER VIDS OF HER PROGRESS
1976 Corvette Stingray Restoration
Over the past year and a half I've been doing a frame on restoration of my
'76 corvette. Most everything has been replaced, repaired or modified in
some way with some customization along the way. The paint was most recent
and something I did mostly on my own but the painter did the body work and
sprayed the car but I did the striping, teardown of the car, sanding all
the layers of primer and color sanding after the paint was layed down.
Now it's time to enjoy driving the car and going to some local cruise in
Massive Barn Find in Portugal
I've tried to identify most of the 180 cars found locked away in here, can
anyone recognise any others? I will add them to the video along with
corrections if confirmed 100%. What is that 2nd Formula race car?
