iron, a few belts and pulleys and away we go.

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.
