Old Race Car First Start - 1968 Pontiac Lemans Stock Car Lives Again!

I picked up this old roundyround race car from a buddies wrecking yard. It was cheap, my parents are pissed it's in the back yard, nothing is new. Norm Brill was the driver, I have no idea who he is so I'm going to assume he went out in a blaze of glory having a shootout with the cops while drunk, naked and high on PCP, leaving his race car in the weeds lost to time. It's a 1968 Pontiac Lemans, the same body as the GTO and Tempest from what I understand. The engine is either a 400 or a 350 V8, it had air conditioning and power steering, possibly a limited slip rear differential but I haven't had a chance to check. The carburetor is a 2 throat unit. It pained me to see it crushed and sent to China like the Nova stock car that was beside it, so I saved it, and now ya'll can enjoy it! Sorry the audio isn't better, it sounds really good in person because the mufflers fell off but it's more than my phone's microphone can handle. The engine sounds very tight and any smoke is likely from the nasty gas I filtered and ran through it. I also show the old lettering on the car, but it's only because it's neat. I'm not a race driver and have no sponsorship from the names listed, if they are even in business any more I'd be surprised. It's just a cool ol' muscle car! Edit: Man this is taking a while to upload. The bent fan and nerfed crank pulley happened when it was moved at the wrecking yard before I got it. I can fix the pulley, but the fan is toast. It'll be replaced before it takes out the water pump. The radiator is junk, it's leaking and I have a large 1ton truck radiator I'll put in it's place, possibly with an electric fan, maybe mounted in the trunk and ducted. I'd sorta like to get fenderwell headers for it like the ratrod has. Will have to look around at the swapmeet....man...this is slow...I like Reddit? Ya'll like reddit? It's neat. Yup...Ooh, I should post this to carporn or something. Oh man, almost done...go...go little bar, you can do it! Oh to heck with it, I'mna go get a beer. Edit 2: Aw man, it went backwards...was at 100, then went to 95...god, now I just feel like a girl writing in her diary about stupid stuff. Like, oh my gawd becky, did you SEE the percentages on that video? I kno rite? Oh, I know, hey you should check out huskystarcraft if you like video games, starcraft II Wings of Liberty in particular. That Husky guy is pretty cool, the music videos are rad. I may have a straw hat and smell like narsty gasoline and durt but I'm a nerd at heart and I still play with cars! Oh hey it's done I think...neat.

1969 Camaro RS/SS First Start up in 28 Years
Working on getting my dads new project car, a 69 Camaro started after sitting for 28 years untouched and uncovered in an Anchorage, Alaska back yard. It was originally a big block/4speed car but was swapped to a 327 in the early 80's. The engine was covered in leafs, moss and debris and had no air cleaner, headers or half the spark plugs when we got it. The car has been parked since 1984, watch to see if we get it going! Don't pay any attention to the Z28 badges someone added those long ago and it was originally Daytona Yellow not white. More details coming soon....

$250 1997 Ford Explorer | First Start After Sitting For 1 Year
I CAN'T RESPOND TO COMMENTS. GOOGLE+ IS MESSED UP ON MY ACCOUNT!!!! Recently obtained a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport, and this is the first time it's started in over a year. We recently moved to a new house, and I noticed this truck sitting near the house. I talked to the landlord and found out that a previous renter had left this Explorer there due to an electrical problem. She said scrap wouldn't even give her $200 for it, so I said I'll buy it for $250. The plan is for me to fix it, get it in good shape again, and sell it for a profit. It's a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport. It's the 2-door model, 4.0l OHV pushrod V6, 5-speed manual transmission, dual range 4WD. It has 342,429 miles on it (551,086 kilometers), which is a lot. I took a look at it, and came up with a list of problems on it. I was unsure if it'd be worth it, if I'd be able to make a profit. But I didn't want to it to go to the junkyard. I decided I would try and get it to start. I didn't want to spend a lot of money since I didn't know if it had a major internal problem. I ended up paying $160 or so for new battery terminals, a new starter solenoid, and a new starter motor. Starter motor was a PITA to replace because of Ford's ridiculous engineering, but I got it done. And it started right up!! As you can tell, I was happy about it. With the engine running, I had the chance to test everything. The only things that don't work are the A/C, power mirrors, headlights, and rear wiper. But I will go on and try and fix those things. Next step is to change out the fluids. New oil, new oil filter, new coolant, and new power steering fluid. Also gonna change out the air filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. With all that done, I'm gonna make a run to the junkyard to make this thing driveable (seat doesn't stay upright and steering wheel is loose). Then gotta get it cleaned up and registered. I can definitely keep posting videos as this thing progresses!
