First Start for 1923 Model T barn car

This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition, as pulled from the barn......but she runs now! Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers. This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry produce to market.

1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He was the last one to hear it run until today. It has not been started since 1961. The motor was stuck so we dissembled it, replaced the rings, rebuilt the top end, installed a new gas tank and lines, replaced the bakelite timing gear, rebuilt the carb, new Exhaust, brakes, tires, battery and wiring harness since the mice had chewed up the original. We pushed it out of the garage, primed the fuel system and it fired right up as you see here. By the way, I could not see a thing hardly through the camera lens due to the bright sunlight.
