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.
1968 Pontiac Lemans project
I traded my red 1961 F100 for this car in December. I liked the truck but it was so difficult to drive. No power steering, brakes, or A/C. So here I have a very cool cruiser. Leaving it mostly stock, no loud mufflers or go fast bolt ons except for the HEI ignition and Edelbrock intake and carburator.
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!
1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport
Just a quick video of me pulling my car out of the parking lot.. It's a 1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport with the original 350 engine, TH 350 transmission, and the original 10 bolt peg leg rear end. It has 81,000 original miles. It went through a frame off restoration recently in which evrything was powder coated. It also sports a new paint job and a GTO hood. It also has some not original stuff which includes a holley 600 cfm vacuum secondary carburetor, edelbrock aluminum intake, and Pypes 2.5" stainless steel x-pipes with low restriction mufflers. Unfortunately I'm missing the rear Pontiac emblem on the trunk lid does anyone know where I can find one, Ive tried year one and performance years but its not remade. The noise at 2:28 is because I hit the steering lock nothing serious. I didnt push on it too hard because the powertrain is 40 years old and in really good shape and I'd like it to last. This is not a trailer queen or a museum piece thats never driven. I drive it as much as possible because its meant to be enjoyed. If you like old muscle cars and would like to get into the hobby the Lemans is still relatively inexpensive and can be dressed up to look like a GTO. This car is my pride and joy and I hope to never sell it so please enjoy.
Starting the Old Cold Forgotten Buick
Oh boy. At least seven attempts later...it finally started. It ran and drove pretty good for a free car. The spark plugs came from the white car (see my other videos). I'll need to get a battery and see if I can fix the power steering leak.
1970 pontiac lemans 2 door hardtop 350 V8 dual exhaust. Magnaflow mufflers.
Just a sound check on my new Exhaust that I got put on two days ago. Originally was the stock Exhaust, 2 inch single pipe. I got tired of not having my car actually sound like a V8 so I had this Exhaust put on. After looking at reviews and talking to my mechanic we decided on magnaflows as it was considerably cheaper and I didn't need something that was ridiculously loud. It has a really nice tone at low rpm's and a slight drone right around 50-60 mph. I don't have a tach on this car currently so I'm not sure what RPM's that is. Everything on this car is ORIGINAL. 74,756 miles on the engine and transmission.
1957 Lawn-boy first start in 20 years.
Here is a Lawn-boy that was given to me by a friend. It sat in his barn for 10-15 years. I cleaned the carb and replaced (2) gaskets and it started right up. Try and buy something today that will do that!
1973 PONTIAC LEMANS ON CHASSIS DYNO
HERE ARE A COUPLE OF PULLS ON THE CHASSIS Dyno. IT WAS LATER DISCOVERED THAT WHEN THE CAR JUMPED THE ROLLERS IT BENT THE DRIVESHAFT. JUST ANOTHER PART BROKEN TO ADD TO THE SCRAP PILE.
