Very First Crank Original 1980 Trans Am. Has Been Sitting For 20 Years, Survivor/Project
I purchased this TA not knowing what was going to work if anything. I put a
new battery in it, made sure it had oil, put transmission fluid in it. Put
gas in the tank. Had to put gas down the carburetor first to prime it. It
started right up and sounded great, Transmission seems to be working
properly. Guages work, radio, exterior and interior lights work, clock
works. everything seems to work except on window, Car does not smoke. This
car is totally all original.. After this video, we found out the car had 3
bent and one broken pushrods, and she still ran..

1969 Ambassador first start since 1999
This is an old car I've owned since 1996. Originally a 290 V8, it now has a
360 V8 from a 1970 Rebel. Until a couple weeks ago, it was parked
underneath a partially fallen tree. Anyway, this is my attempt to get it to
run for the first time since 1999. Tried cranking it about 3-4 years ago,
but it wouldn't fire. This time, I've put in some new points and condenser,
will see if I can get it to run.
Original 1980 Trans Am "Yard Find" Engine View, Sat For 20 Years
This car sat under a huge Oak for 20 years. She was not touched the entire
time. It had 112k miles when found. The car actually ran the way you see
the engine in this video. We had to break her down so we could really see
what was going on. The findings were shocking. This is the first time
seeing inside the engine. There are dozens of videos of this car on this
1980 Trans Am's very First Drive After Sitting for 20 Years, Survivor
This car has been parked for 20 years without any attention. My brother and
I replaced all brake hoses, fluid flush on the engine, new radiator, new
spark plugs and wires, Carburetor needs to be rebuilt so that is the next
thing on the list. After this video, we realized she had 2 bent and one
57 CHEVY UNCOVERED 35 YEAR HIBERNATION
After many requests to look at the Old Chevy I finally cleared out around
it with the help of Lil Racer so we could take a look at it and make a
video of it.
Original 1980 Trans Am Start Up & Walk Around / Survivor Sat for 20 years
She is in the beginning of the clean up and engine work. She was parked in
a back yard for 20 years with no attention. I was not knowing what I was
getting myself into because i did not know if the engine was blown,
transmission is gone, had no idea. I got her home and purchased a new
battery, put it on and the first thing that happened is the power antenna
went up. Come to find out all the lights work, all the gauges work except
the gas gauge. The clock works perfect. I have changed all the plugs,
wires, replaced the radiator, all hoses, break lines, front break pads and
changed the oil. Carburetor needs to be rebuilt soon, but she is running.
The first start up is here on my posts. I have cleaned her up too and I
don't think I am going to change a thing with the paint or interior. I
will put new tires on her and work on the engine and I thinks that's all I
am going to do. I love her because she is original.., We realized after
this video we had 2 bent and one broken pushrods..
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with an 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.
