1980 Trans Am Start Up

My dad starting up his 1980 Pontiac Trans Am for the second time since completly rebuilding the engine, it has a 400. It's pretty loud because he doesn't have an Exhaust on it yet. It's in the makes of being completly restored.

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 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..
