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..

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 page





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..

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.

Totally 100% Original 1980 Trans Am Survivor Barn/Yard Find Sat for 20 Years
This video is the actual first time seeing this car for myself. It was pulled out from the original owners back yard and pulled to a friends home until I could get there. This day it was 102 degrees outside so sorry for all of the puffing going on. This car was going to be scrapped after a mechanic came to see it and he said this car will never run. Well he was totally mistaken. Car sat outside for 18 years and its still not a rust bucket.. We got it running and now working on the carb. UPDATE. WE REBUILT THE CARB TWICE AND REPLACE THE GAS TANK, ALL GAS LINES, SPARK PLUGS WATER PUMP, RADIATOR AND 3 BENT PUSH RODS AND 2 BROKEN ONES. SHE NOW IS A DAILY DRIVER AND RUNS LIKE NEW AND BURNS NO OIL. I HAVE PUT OVER 4,000 MILES ON HER IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER. GO TO MY PAGE AND YOU WILL SEE THE OTHER VIDS OF HER PROGRESS
