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.

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.

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.

Old Race Car First Start - 1968 Pontiac Lemans Stock Car Lives Again!
I picked up this old roundyround race car from a buddies wrecking yard. It was cheap, my parents are pissed it's in the back yard, nothing is new. Norm Brill was the driver, I have no idea who he is so I'm going to assume he went out in a blaze of glory having a shootout with the cops while drunk, naked and high on PCP, leaving his race car in the weeds lost to time. It's a 1968 Pontiac Lemans, the same body as the GTO and Tempest from what I understand. The engine is either a 400 or a 350 V8, it had air conditioning and power steering, possibly a limited slip rear differential but I haven't had a chance to check. The carburetor is a 2 throat unit. It pained me to see it crushed and sent to China like the Nova stock car that was beside it, so I saved it, and now ya'll can enjoy it! Sorry the audio isn't better, it sounds really good in person because the mufflers fell off but it's more than my phone's microphone can handle. The engine sounds very tight and any smoke is likely from the nasty gas I filtered and ran through it. I also show the old lettering on the car, but it's only because it's neat. I'm not a race driver and have no sponsorship from the names listed, if they are even in business any more I'd be surprised. It's just a cool ol' muscle car! Edit: Man this is taking a while to upload. The bent fan and nerfed crank pulley happened when it was moved at the wrecking yard before I got it. I can fix the pulley, but the fan is toast. It'll be replaced before it takes out the water pump. The radiator is junk, it's leaking and I have a large 1ton truck radiator I'll put in it's place, possibly with an electric fan, maybe mounted in the trunk and ducted. I'd sorta like to get fenderwell headers for it like the ratrod has. Will have to look around at the swapmeet....man...this is slow...I like Reddit? Ya'll like reddit? It's neat. Yup...Ooh, I should post this to carporn or something. Oh man, almost done...go...go little bar, you can do it! Oh to heck with it, I'mna go get a beer. Edit 2: Aw man, it went backwards...was at 100, then went to 95...god, now I just feel like a girl writing in her diary about stupid stuff. Like, oh my gawd becky, did you SEE the percentages on that video? I kno rite? Oh, I know, hey you should check out huskystarcraft if you like video games, starcraft II Wings of Liberty in particular. That Husky guy is pretty cool, the music videos are rad. I may have a straw hat and smell like narsty gasoline and durt but I'm a nerd at heart and I still play with cars! Oh hey it's done I think...neat.

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 did. - 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 "transmission/engine braking" - 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.
