1967 Chrysler Newport First Start After Sitting For 20 Years
I went to check out this car because it was advertised as having a "valuable 440" which I wanted to rebuild and put in my 73 Challenger. When I got there I found out it was a 383 2 bbl car in incredible shape with 69990 original miles. It had belonged to his grandfather and was parked in 1990/1991 and never started since, nor was it ever registered in anyone else's name, so I am technically the second owner. It wasn't what I came for but I had to take it home. This is a video diary of getting this great old girl running and will probably only be enjoyed by true car enthusiasts. November 28, 2012 Update: I haven't been here in quite a while and at first I was a bit dismayed that there are so many lonely aholes in our world and how they tend to flock to the internet. I considered pulling the video but realized there are many people who enjoyed it and that is who I posted it for. To all of those experts who know so much more than the rest of us please keep your negative comments to yourself. To those of you who say I should have done more before trying to start, I did. - The previous owner had pulled the car out of the field with a tractor and his buddy "may have" put the car in gear to slow it down. If the rings were rusted the engine could have been destroyed by that action alone, there was some resistance when I turned the crank pulley over by hand and I was surprised it turned over that easily, but with the engine sitting that long the rings would not be sealing to build up pressure in the cylinders. Therefore I concluded that there was no rusting/seizing so no risk of cylinder wall damage, or that the engine was possibly toast due to "transmission/engine braking" - The oil was not milky, still "felt" oily and I only planned on running the engine 2-3 minutes to get it off the trailer and onto my hoist to do all the fluids, so I determined it had enough viscosity left to protect it for a short period of time. - Even an old fuel filter will stop any major contaminants from reaching the carb. So why spend a bunch of money, with the steps I took the chance of me causing any damage at all was miniscule. For those who were so concerned about our safety, come on. We grew up on a farm before the days of fuel injection and many farm vehicles do not get regularly started so this is a very common practice. The risk is MINIMAL and calculated, note that there is a fire extinguisher at 8:43 in the lower left corner on the trailer. The jerry can is very full by design, gas liquid does not ignite but the vapours do, note that when the gas starts to come out of the spigot that the top of the jerry can is full of gas, not fumes! I don't believe at any time was my brothers face over the carb, these big old girls are so big you pretty well have to stand in the engine compartment to do that. We did our best to slowly feed the engine as little gas as possible to avoid flooding the engine and possibly causing her to backfire. Anyways, I guess I shouldn't feel like I need to defend myself against a bunch of morons who obviously have nothing better to do with their time than to creep youtube videos so they can leave moronic comments that allow them to feel all high and mighty ... but at least it might stop a few from wasting our time as we try to enjoy videos of common interest. Thanks to all for the positive comments and feedback.

Lada hand crank start
I made an attempt of starting my Lada with a hand crank, and it went smoother than I'd thought. It was unstarted for a week. The preparations I did before starting, was removing the license plate to access the hole in the bumper, turning on the ignition and pulling the choke out fully. Of course I also checked that it was not in gear =)





Starting the Flathead
I love the sound of that Flathead Ford!

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.





-29C degrees cold start LADA
It was really -29* when i tried to start engine of my lada samara(1500 ccm, solex-carburettor). A battery was fully loaded at home yesterday, and me and my wife rided to our parents something like 20 kilometers on the streets of StPetersburg,Russia. It was 1,5 hours before we achieved parents house and i stopped engine, Jam everywhere! And night was cold and there was 29 degrees of cold by celsius. And morning begins! At first i tryed to fully pull the choke lever and start engine. There was little rpm - motor oil was too cold and sticky, starter can`t rotate crankschaft. At the second i turn on the light to make little load to battery, to warm it up and mix the electrolite inside. At the third i turn on the starter and motor reluctantly maked flashes, and more and more! Battery - 65 Ah, 5 years old Carburettor - solex, 12 years old Motor oil - Esso Ultra 10 w40, 8.000 km Compression on cylinders(last summer) 9-10-10.5-10.5





Vauxhall 10 - First start in 41 years
I'm afraid this is now for sale. Have a look at eBay and you will see - have a bid if you would like to own it. I'm afraid I just don't have time to do the work (and won't be hppy with a rough job if I rushed it) so it will have to go. See http://www.abs-zero.com (click through to 'the old site') and also the listing on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200946082683 (starts 9pm on Wed 24th July 2013). Thank you to everyone who has looked at this and taken the time to write a nice comment - they really have been appreciated. :-) I still own the other Vauxhall 10 and will keep that a while longer as it's already part restored. If anyone wants to see it, I'll make a similar video and upload it. My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to my two boys will have to wait a while... :-) --- My new project - I bought this in September 2008 as a barn find - it had been stored in a barn for over 40 years. This is the first time anyone has attempted to run it, note the 6V electrical system being Boosted by a 12V jump pack - OK for short periods if the 6V battery is good. The fuel system is still unproven at this point, so running was achieved by pouring a small amount of fuel directly down the carburettor - there's no reason why it shouldn't fire up straight away in normal use, but here it presumably starts out flooded. Oh the joys of carburettored engines!





Old tractors never die! Ursus vs. Land Rover.
This film its just a little joke. Many vehicles -many uses. Tractor is´╗┐ used to plow the field, all-terrain car used to efficiently off-road move. Be aware of the differences. Different gears, tyres, motors and many things... remember that! This is not sugestion who is better. I like all vintage, off-road machines.
