Cars from the 1980s making history. SAVE OLD CARS!
We always see cars from the 40's-70's in junkyards, backyards, and sitting
in fields rotting away... Ive yet to see a video dedicated to the 80's. I
know some cars pictured here aren't classics and never will be, but one day
they will be gone too. Let me know what you think.
Dodge Challenger '70 first start in 4 months
Dodge Challenger '70
First start in 4 months.
Old gas, no choke.
Driven last time about 10 months ago.
Doesn't run very well when cold, gets alot better after running for a
couple of minutes. Would prefer it with choke.
Ghostly Abandoned Car Dealership.
Driving through Derbyshire and saw this ghostly, abandoned used car
dealership with some of the 20 year old stock remaining rusting away
quietly. Very unsual time warp.
Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
DeLorean #4772 started for first time in 18 years - www.delorean.co.uk
My 7th project DeLorean bursts into life after a complete engine tear-down
due to water ingress. A corroded liner was replaced and its rotten seat was
welded up and machined. The valves were all cleaned and re-lapped in with
new seals, and the heads were skimmed. As you can see, one item was
neglected in the reassembly...! The big puff of smoke at the start is due
to all the assembly oil burning off.
Abandoned Delorean :(
Some lady parked her delorean behind her house in 99 and never went back to
get it. It still sits there rotting away and it pains me to see it
happening. Summer Video of it coming soon (well whenever summer comes)
How to start a 1912 Cadillac
The 1912 Cadillac is the first automobile in the world to include a starter
motor. This is the procedure in starting one and driving away.
1959 C1 Corvette Barn Car Unveiled
More of our story on www.vette59.com!
Katharine and her dad "uncover" their Corvette after 25 years of storage in
the barn. This is the first step in getting the car back on the road. The
'vette was purchased by Barry in 1970 from the original owner, and went
into retirement when kids came along. The two are putting her back in
road-ready condition, no NCRS untouchable flatbed riders here.
GHOSTLY BMW DEALERSHIP ABANDONED SINCE 1988
In 1988, Citation Motors, a BMW Dealership in Ontario, shut its doors with
little explanation. The simple answer seems to be that the dealership had
its concession license revoked, but nobody seems to be able to track down
why exactly. Endras BMW, another Toronto-based Bimmer peddler, did some
digging, but didn't come up with too much.
Whatever the case, the dealership moved to Toronto, switched its name to
Downtown BMW, and went under in 2002. The owner of both places seems to be
eccentric at best, as he left Citation where it sat, untouched, with a
then-brand new E24 635 CSi and E28 5 Series abandoned inside. The business
is reportedly well cared for, and the cars have not succumbed to the
elements the way they would have were they truly left to rot.
The owner of the establishment apparently has little interest in selling
the business or his wares. To make things more interesting, there's
apparently an as-yet unopened underground storage facility and a back lot
packed with junked Bimmers.
