"Barn Find" First Start: 1982 Olds Delta 88 5.7L /350 c.i. Diesel
Today, August 2, 2014, was the first time anyone tried to start this car since March, 1989. For 25 years (not 35; my head math failed me in the excitement) the front end has been up on blocks and torn down to the steering knuckles. When we recently got a crack at it we tracked down and installed the missing parts, put in new oil, a new fuel filter, and new batteries, and turned the key...





Drive in the Chevrolet Caprice Diesel
Drive in the 1981 Chevrolet Caprice 350 (5,7) V8 Diesel. This car is still from the first owner. The Chevy was stored for more than 20 years because after almost 400.000 km the head gasgets were blown. Last year, we did a complete engine rebuilt, with new pistons, main studs, head studs, and so on..

83 Chevy Caprice 305 0-60mph (fastest round but still slow :D)
*UPDATE 12/13/11: After i get my Trans checked out this summer i'll upload a REAL 0-60 showing what these cars should be able to do. [*UPDATE 7/18/10: 350 swap COMPLETE! Stay tuned for a new 0-60!! *UPDATE* 5/15/10: Currently getting a mildly modified 350 ready to swap in, check my channel for the update once its done. *UPDATE (9/4/09)* Transmission has been rebuilt; hoping to post a new 0-60 once i get some engine issues sorted out. The new tranny has been beefed up too so i think there'll be a big difference.] Ok so i guess it was driver error in the last video. I don't normally floor this thing and i guess ya really gutta push it through the floorboards! And i did all this with about 200lbs of junk in the trunk. I was pleased to find out today that i have the TH700-R4 transmission (one of the better transmissions)
