Slideshow Part5 Kaufdorf car graveyard Spring 2010
Kaufdorf Autofriedhof - Switzerland's vintage car graveyard. It was the biggest graveyard of its kind in Europe -- a vast metal jungle of more than 1,000 rusting vintage cars including forgotten British Wolseleys, "sit up and beg" Ford Prefects, rotting Porsches and even the wreck of a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. The collection of decaying old-timers, which go back to the late-1920s, sits in makeshift corrugated iron garages and among trees on the edge of Kaufdorf some 10 miles south of Switzerland's capital Bern. After surviving for 75 years, the authorities have declared that the collection is an environmental hazard and decided to clear it by court order. But the plan has provoked uproar among concerned Kaufdorf locals and more than just a few other Swiss residents. A campaign to preserve the site was started when an open day was held. The organisers expected about 50 people to attend, but 10,000 turned up. Franz Messerli, whose father founded the car cemetery, said: "We never expected such interest. Our aim is to preserve it for posterity as a national work of art." Mr Messerli's father, Walter, opened what was originally intended as a vehicle breaker's yard in 1933. A part-time racing driver and scrap-metal dealer, he was fascinated by cars and even taught himself to be a mechanic. At its peak, his collection numbered about 2,000 vehicles.

'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model, that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.

1927 REO Truck - Slide Pack
I'm working on an old 1927 REO truck that has been left open to the weather for many years and as a result is in a fairly poor state. However it is not past the point where it cannot be restored, so join me on a journey to see if I can get it back on the road.





1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.





Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt? Took 45 years to bury this Volkswagen and almost 2 days to dig it out. Have a look. Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since 1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for 45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters. Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960 VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965. We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us a call today if you know of one. Thanks again.

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.
