Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in
probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug
wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but
couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before
shooting the vid!
47772's first start in quite a few years `
47772 started for the first time in some time. this engine has EP start
contactors which is why it stop motoring over after a couple of turns as
the air had got too low. it was a bit sluggish to start with but it soon
clears and settles down nicely with oil pressure of 60 PSI. still plenty
more work to be done on this one before it graces the main line again. But
it should not be too long away
An abrupt end to the 1962 VW project
I spent the morning working on trying to free up the rear wheels. Heated
them, soaked them in oil, and yarned on 'em till I was sore. Then I
thought of a wonderful solution! hahahaha.. Now on with the rest of my
Pulling the VW bug out of the grave
I kind of think it'd be a hoot to make this thing run under it's own power
and drive it around looking just about like it does now.. hahahah.
'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
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 paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.

English: A short documentary about the first start of a one-cylinder Lanz

see a moving piston as well as fire with Exhaust gases running out of the cylinder.
Deutsch: Eine kurze Amateurreportage über den ersten Start eines

Polski: Krótki amatorski reportaż o pierwszym uruchomieniu
