Finally starting up my 1977 T-Bird again after a whole year!

Hey everyone, I finally got a chance to start up my T-Bird and give it a spin. It has been way too long. Last time I started it was Sept. last year (2010). Starts up again without really any problems, small fuel leak, 40 second fix. lol. Here is the history of my t-bird: My dad bought it for his first car and he stopped driving it in 1989 because of some carb problems. My dad saved the car for me and in 2004 I had the chance to get it running again. To my surprise, after not running for 15 years, I poured gas down the carb and it fired right over!!!!! After I bypassed the gas lines (old gas in them) I had it running like new. Haha, first time I put it in gear it squealed the tires and jumped forward a couple feet!!! I make sure I have the break to the floor before I put it in gear now! Later in 2004 I brought the car in to a mechanic to have the tranny flushed, but because of my lack of car knowledge I found out the hard way that you don't do that to a old car. It now has tranny problems, sometimes it wont stay in gear. Which really sucks because the tranny was working beyond perfect before. It still has the minor carb problems mentioned above too. And so I parked it in the storage shed in the video and it is waiting for me to have the money and time to continue rebuilding it.

Giving my dad his dream car, a Classic 1969 Camaro, part 2 of 2, Please read the description
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT, After many years of hard work, blood, sweat and some more blood. I finally was able to restore, build and give my dad his dream car. A 1969 Camaro, this is a car he has wanted ever since he was young. I promised myself I would do this. Please see the first part, as it is the letter I gave him before he got the car and explains a little more why I did this. He found out about the car about a year prior but had not seen it since it was painted and finished. I want to thank the two other clips I found on youtube that helped give me the motivation to achieve this, showing me that this dream, any dream was possible. And of course everyone who helped make this a reality, I can never thank you enough. My son is recording this while my brother and I went around the block to get the car and drive it up to give it to him. Note @ 11:30 the clip of the letter is played again. thanks for watching and keep Dreaming UPDATE Aug31, 2011 On a day chosen for moms, mine passed away peacefully on mother's day May 8 with my dad, my brother and I by her side. I want to thanks again everyone for all there thought and wishes. I know even though my mom is not here but will never be gone. This is the last video that we have of my mom. I miss you mom. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aymObf1aTYY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEhnq7gpGTg&feature=related

1939 SS Jaguar starts after 20 years in bits
http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/ssjaguar.htm http://www.scottpeter.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ss_jaguar.htm 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 trim. Video recorded 1993.

The forgotten Thunderbirds 1977-1978
A video tribute to the nearly forgotten 77-78 Ford Thunderbird. Every carshow has a 55-57 T-bird sitting around, and the big square birds, but the poor 77-78 Thunderbird was the hottest selling car for Ford Motor Company in the late 70's. Sit back and take a trip down to the birds nest to rediscover a rare bird. Thanks for watching.





Ford Thunderbird Town Landau Sports Coupe Lincoln Continental Mark VI 2 Owner
Thunderbird Town Landau T-Bird Sport Coupe Nathan Wratislaw AKA 1 Owner Car Guy And thats right Ford Called this car a sports Coupe. These are Very nice cars and this Tbird is a Beautiful car and in Great shape. The Town Landau is a Rare thing to see in this 2 Year run in the Fox Platform. I was Really Surprised at how well the 4.2 Litre V8 Does I gues Maybe cause its a light car but the car moves. I would say there is Alot more Power than there is in a 87 or so Fleetwood I do ALOT of Unique Muscle, Classic & Euro cars and I sell them Cheap Call Anytime 406 544 6919 Make sure and Check out my Channel I have ove 750 Videos on there of nice Clean One and 2 Owner Cars & Trucks Also if you Subscribe you will See the Unique cars First..;-) Also You can Add Me on Facebook here is a Link http://facebook.com/cerealmarshmallows From Wikipedia Reflecting a further industry-wide adoption of smaller vehicle designs in the interest of improved fuel efficiency and emissions compliance, the Thunderbird was redesigned for 1980 on the compact Ford Fox platform, which first appeared only two years prior as the basis for the Ford Fairmont. Compared to the previous Torino-based Thunderbird and its large 114 inches (2,896 mm) wheelbase and 215.5 inches (5,474 mm) overall length, the new Thunderbird lost 5.6 inches (142 mm) of wheelbase and 14.6 inches (371 mm) in overall length.[4] The squarish styling seen in the previous generation Thunderbird was favored for the new model, but the small car platform resulted in a poor translation with a distinctly upright appearance. Frameless door glass was no longer used; a chrome metal frame was used, making this car more like a two-door sedan. Combined with the poor performing 4.2 L (255 cu in) Windsor V8 as a base engine, this Thunderbird generation was not well received by the public. The available 4.9 L (302 cu in) Windsor V8 was a welcome alternative to the 255, but with only 131 horsepower (98 kW) performance was only modestly enhanced. Significantly, though failing to generate any new interest for the Thunderbird, a six-cylinder engine was made available for the first time in the Thunderbird's history in 1981, the 200 cu in (3.3 L) Thriftpower Six. For 1982 this was followed up with the replacement of the straight-six with a V6, the 3.8 L Essex, which was also now the Thunderbird's standard engine. Hurting the Thunderbird's sales performance further, the 302 V8 did not return for 1982, leaving the 255 as the only alternative engine. At 288,638 examples produced between 1980 and 1982, the eighth generation Thunderbird was barely more successful than the final model year of the previous Thunderbird generation.[1] In order to revive the Thunderbird's success, a redesign was needed and Ford would deliver one for 1983. I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)
