1980 Trans Am's very First Drive After Sitting for 20 Years, Survivor
This car has been parked for 20 years without any attention. My brother and
I replaced all brake hoses, fluid flush on the engine, new radiator, new
spark plugs and wires, Carburetor needs to be rebuilt so that is the next
thing on the list. After this video, we realized she had 2 bent and one
1980 z28.. auto,t-top crate 350 HO, new paint and interior
Start up, fly by, power slide, and so on. 9 driving clips edited together
Saved from the Scrap Yard! Challengers, Chargers, RT's, Hemis even Winged Mopars!
Captain Right-time-right-place, strikes again! I was just out riding my
bike when I saw this black Challenger on the back of a flat-bed truck. The
owner was closing the gate and just about to set off when I leaped off my
bike & pulled my camera out.
It turns out he didn't just have one sweet Mopar (which happened to have a
426 Hemi) he had A GARAGE FULL OF THEM. It was all a bit of a blur and I
was still puffing from having been riding, and then being gob-smacked, and
then non-stop asking questions.
I wasn't able to catch the whole story but it seems the Brisbane City
(Australia) government had Assumed (confiscated/commandeered) his land and
had to remove all of his possessions with in 30 days or lose it. Had he not
done so, all would have been scrapped. If that had happened his only course
of action would've been to sue the government to reclaim damages.
That would really have sucked because the cash wouldn't have brought them

1971 Z-28 Camaro
My 1971 Z-28 Camaro is
all original, I bought it new in June of 1971, it still runs great and is a
blast to drive. The car was sold earlier this year.
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
