Starting a Citroen DS after a 27 year rest...

This car was off the road for 27 years. The engine came from the other DS (See video "Engine swap...") which was also off the road for about 20 years. I borrowed the "Sweet" from Dave's Farm (Thanks Dave). I hope he's not gonna sue me :oD If you work on cars and you don't know davesfarm, you are missing something...

1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the engine and sort it out for driving later this year. The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It runs better with them closed. And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the car. For more of the story see the HCCA Gazette, May - June 2009. To see how things turned out, see the related video, 1909 Cadillac first drive at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEy0KagVrIw

Opening container with my DS break in Poti
The container was opened and my DS break appeared in good condition, but he didn't want to start and was blocking another car that was behind him. Not starting meant that the hydraulic system could not lift the car up and lifting it up manually and pushing it out did not work. Fortunately Goga found that the problem was with the rotor and he managed to fix it.

Citroen DS 21
Citroen DS 21,1969





Citroen DS21. First start after 7 years
Šis automobilis stovėjo garaže maždaug septynerius metus. Prieš tai jis pats įveikė kelionę iš Klaipėdos į Tauragę, tačiau, nors buvo važiuojantis, buvo ne per geriausios būklės. Perėmę Citroeną savo globon, nusprendėme jį atgaivinti. Po septynerių metų praleistų drėgname garaže jis užsivedė ir prisikėlė, tiesiogine to žodžio prasme. Šis vaizdo įrašas buvo nufilmuotas 2011-11-10. Filmas neredaguotas, kad būtų matoma visa veiksmų eiga. Automobilio pagaminimo metai - 1972.





Slideshow Part2 Kaufdorf car graveyard September 2008
Kaufdorf Autofriedhof - Switzerland's vintage car graveyard. It was the biggest graveyard of its kind in Europe -- a vast metal jungle of more than 1,000 rusting vintage cars including forgotten British Wolseleys, "sit up and beg" Ford Prefects, rotting Porsches and even the wreck of a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. The collection of decaying old-timers, which go back to the late-1920s, sits in makeshift corrugated iron garages and among trees on the edge of Kaufdorf some 10 miles south of Switzerland's capital Bern. After surviving for 75 years, the authorities have declared that the collection is an environmental hazard and intend to clear it by court order later this year. But the plan has provoked uproar among concerned Kaufdorf locals and more than just a few other Swiss residents. A campaign to preserve the site was started last month when an open day was held. The organisers expected about 50 people to attend, but 10,000 turned up. Franz Messerli, whose father founded the car cemetery, said: "We never expected such interest. Our aim is to preserve it for posterity as a national work of art." Mr Messerli's father, Walter, opened what was originally intended as a vehicle breaker's yard in 1933. A part-time racing driver and scrap-metal dealer, he was fascinated by cars and even taught himself to be a mechanic. At its peak, his collection numbered about 2,000 vehicles.

Cold Start the 1971 Citroen DS 21 Safari!
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this great old Citroen DS. It's a bit tatty and will need a restoration (as soon as I'm finished my other one!), but still runs and drives nicely. These old Cits are a bit grumpy in the cold, and this one hasn't been on the road for a while now, so the battery was pretty tired. I hooked up some cables to a better battery to see if we could get her running for a last little drive before it gets put into storage. I just love these cars, and I wanted a break (wagon) to go with my sedan. This one is a standard shift with power steering and brakes. Looks like Stella wants to go for a ride, too!
