The Old Truck Runs Again!
Please stop by and give us a "like!" - http://www.JohnsOldTruck.com I've been in love with this 1949 Chevy 3100 for over 30 years. It used to belong to my brother, but as often happens life gets in the way and it sat in his garage until he needed the space and we made a deal in 2004. Thanks Brian & Jim! Your help means more than you know... And thanks to all for watching and sharing! Peace - JPS





Old Church Bus found abandoned in woods
We came across this old school bus close to our property, and the land owner said we could have it and the contents.. It turned out to be a bigger job than we thought, as it took us all day to blaze a road and uncover the vines and tree roots that had grown into it.. We'll have to come back later to get it with bigger equipment.

Barn Find 1968 Euro Beetle, First Start.
This is her first attempted startup in 21 years! Of course before I tried it, I poured Marvel Mystery Oil in the upper cylinders, filed and gapped the points, rebuilt the carburetor, and replaced the fuel pump, plugs, and wires. Still it impressed me that it fired up after all those years of sitting. Pulled this old bug from a barn in rural Oklahoma, where it sat unmoved for over two decades. You just can't kill these old VWs. Thanks for watching.

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...
