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.





1972 MGB GT, So Cal, Blue Plate, One Owner 39 Yrs, SOLD!
1972 MGB GT, So Cal, Blue Plate, One Owner 39 Yrs, For Sale This is a fabulous motorcar! Being a Southern California car since new with one owner for 39 years, this is nearly rust and accident free. Mechanically this motorcar is fully sorted and feels tight and spry. Everything works as it should and is ready to enjoy as is or it can be cosmetically improved for show. Barbara purchased this GT on June 9, 1972 and took delivery on June 12, 1972 (she had fitted an oil cooler, bumper over-riders and other accessories). She lives in Cerritos (Los Angeles suburb) and sold the car late last year, after 39 years of ownership. In July of 1990 she turned 100,000 miles on the odometer and by the mid-1990's she stored the car as she was getting more elderly. The GT now has 155,000 miles from new but is mechanically fabulous. The chrome and stainless are in very nice condition and there is almost no rust issues as one would expect from a Southern California motorcar. Recent mechanical re-commissioning includes: • Rebuilt carbs, • full new and complete brakes systems, • heater valve, • complete tune-up, • radials, • new fuel lines, • boiled gas tank, and • various other improvements. All the work was completed by the engineers at British Service in the Long Beach area. This GT is complete with the original owners manual and, incredibly, a fastidiously maintained log book that documents every fuel fill-up, oil change, service, battery replacement, tune-up, tire replacement, etc. from January 1976 through 1991. It details the cost of the fuel and even the average miles per gallon for every single tank of gasoline!! For example, on May 26, 1976, Barbara filled up her GT with 9.9 gallons and logged an average of 26.87 mpg!! This GT was originally delivered in Forest Green and years ago Barbara changed the color to its present red. The paint has crazing and could benefit from a quality repaint (MG's were delivered new with poor quality paint). The body is in overall excellent condition. There are two small areas of surface rust on the passenger's side and it has a very small area with 1/8 inch of filler in the passenger's side rocker panel (see video for details). Overall this is an exceptional body for a chrome bumper GT. The tan interior is completely original and is in overall nice condition (for being original). There are two tears in the driver's seat cover and discoloration in some of the carpeting, but overall the interior is quite nice and projects a wonderful patina. All of the instrumentation performs well and the oil pressure and temperature operate exactly as a well performing MGB GT should. Chrome bumper MGB GT's are very desirable. Southern California, one owner motorcars are the most desirable of any. Although this has patina cosmetically, the mechanics are excellent. The value guide has the GT's at No 1 $14,000, No 2 $9,800 and No 3 at $6,300. This is an excellent motorcar for enjoyment and will likely prove to be a solid investment.

FIRST START OF 1974 MGB ROADSTER WHILE MY WIFE CUSSES LIKE A SAILOR :)
I'm in the middle of my second restoration of a 1974 MGB roadster that I originally bought in 1988. This is the first time the car has been started since October 1998. The funniest part was my wife trying to be funny by being all foul-mouthed since she didn't know she was on video. The first half of this video is trying to get it started. The second half is of the car running and moving under its own power for the first time in over a decade. Still much to do but it's nice to know the engine survived its long hibernation.





Cold Start '74 MGB
Starting our 1974.5 MGB. It's been parked in the garage for nearly 4 months without running.
