1987 Buick Grand National First start in ten years

Video was made for personal use but decided to share Sat in storage for ten years (01-11) Changed oil, changed plugs and charged the battery. Thats it. Fogged the cylinders and ran the motor with out plugs to build up oil pressure before i started it. Smoke from start up was from the fogging oil, I still cant believe how easy it started. Even the gas in ten years old! Although, it was before Ethanol was added to everything and it was treated with a heavy dose of good stabilizer. It will be drained and new fuel will be added before we run it again. Enjoy!
