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
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
1970 Pontiac Lemans Headers
First start and drive after the headers installation. All leaks are fixed.

1969 pontiac lemans 455
Here's a video of my 69 lemans with rebuilt 455 bored .040 over (464),
speed pro pistons, edelbrock rpm camshaft, 6x-8 heads ported, comp cams
rollertip rockers, edelbrock valve springs, procomp intake, 750cfm
edelbrock carb, and flowtech headders. This combo makes great power and I
love the torque this monster makes. Next upgrade will be edelbrock aluminum
heads to really wake this beast up! Please comment on engine combo, body,
and suggestions. Thanx
1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20
years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the
original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine. Before starting it we put oil down
the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap,
Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the
1939 SS Jaguar starts after 20 years in bits
I only put 1 gallon of petrol in her tank and after an initial few kicks
she refused to start until it dawned on me that I needed to pull out the
petrol reserve tap. The engine has no timing marks and she spits back due
to being far too far advanced. She's also very tappety.
The drive out of the garage was my first experience of driving her and the
street scene was the first time of her being out on the public highway. At
this stage she had a very noisey rear axle and gearbox and no interior

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
- 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
- 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.
