1947 Vauxhall 10 - first drive in 41 years

I'm afraid this is now for sale. Have a look at eBay and you will see - have a bid if you would like to own it. I'm afraid I just don't have time to do the work (and won't be hppy with a rough job if I rushed it) so it will have to go. See http://www.abs-zero.com (click through to 'the old site') and also the listing on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200946082683 (starts 9pm on Wed 24th July 2013). Thank you to everyone who has looked at this and taken the time to write a nice comment - they really have been appreciated. :-) I still own the other Vauxhall 10 and will keep that a while longer as it's already part restored. If anyone wants to see it, I'll make a similar video and upload it. My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to my two boys will have to wait a while... :-) If you've seen my other video of this car you will know I bought it after it had been stored in a barn for over 40 years. I have since rebuilt the front brakes and needed to turn it around in the garage to get better access to the rear brakes to rebuild them too. Unfortunately the starting of the engine is missed off the clip, but as I've now rebuilt the fuel pump and put new fuel in the tank, starting up is pretty easy - pull out the choke, turn on the ignition and press the starter. There's still no coolant in the engine, hence why I turned off the engine before stopping. This is the first time I've attempted to drive it at all, so a big moment for me. Hope you enjoy it, feel free to comment if you like.

1919 Buick First start since 1952
This is the first startup of this 1919 buick six roadster that had been sitting in a barn in ohio since 1952. It was parked there with a bad differential. My boss bought it on Ebay and i gently disassembled the engine, cleaned out the 50+ year old oil, freed up the piston rings and put it back together. I had to substitute a newer coil to get a strong spark and had manually filled the float bowl of the carburetor. No fuel pump was hooked up or water in the engine hence the short run time. This is a very cool early overhead valve engine with an aluminum crankcase,cast iron cylinder block, roller tappets, exposed valvetrain, zero gap piston rings, and electric start. This car had about 14,000 miles on the odometer. Enjoy the video! Check out my other video/slide show for engine disassembly pictures.

1974 Morris Mini - First start in seven years!
After passing its MOT in 2002, the mini went back into the garage and hadn't turned a wheel until now. The engine is a 1400cc MiniSport half engine kit, built by me, and has only driven about 10 miles. The digital dashboard is from an MG Maestro, one of several modifications made in my misguided youth. Note that it doesn't talk... yet! Oil is fresh, but the fuel isn't. Clearly, the there is more work to be done to get it running right.





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.





#1 Mashed Barn Find Austin Healey 3000 Still in Barn
Current state: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2623951294748246367 "Here doggie, here doggie" Mud dobbers and about 20 years of dirt and mold cover this 1960 BN7. Remarkably the car has only surface rust. A tree fell on it years ago after the owner died. Then it found sanctuary in this lovely barn. It was originally Healey blue. The second layer of paint appears to have protected the metal. Floors and undercarriage are solid. It had a wierd sea foam green motor and engine components. Peolple say that is not an original color yet I have seen other Healeys with engines the same color. It now has the standard engine color.
