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.

Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt? Took 45 years to bury this Volkswagen and almost 2 days to dig it out. Have a look. Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since 1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for 45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters. Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960 VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965. We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us a call today if you know of one. Thanks again.

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.





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 immediate future.





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!

Cold start 50+ Year old Lister Diesel
Cold start 50+ Year old Lister Diesel Engine. No glow plugs or easy start This engine had sat in a shed for 10 years before we got it. It normally starts faster but it ran out of diesel so there was some air in the fuel system I have been told it was made in 1959. It drives a fan at the back which can be disengaged and you can attach an irrigation pump to front.





1,4 Million KM Mercedes 300D Sat 7 Years
Was put away in 2003 because of rust and the engine was worn, it didn't start in the winters and it smoked real bad. It sat for 7 years another place, so it was moved to this place, but not started because we used a truck. Over the 7 years we lost the key for it, so I had to redneck wire the glowplugs and starter.
