1980 Trans Am's very First Drive After Sitting for 20 Years, Survivor
This car has been parked for 20 years without any attention. My brother and I replaced all brake hoses, fluid flush on the engine, new radiator, new spark plugs and wires, Carburetor needs to be rebuilt so that is the next thing on the list. After this video, we realized she had 2 bent and one broken pushrods,,,





1969 Camaro RS/SS First Start up in 28 Years
Working on getting my dads new project car, a 69 Camaro started after sitting for 28 years untouched and uncovered in an Anchorage, Alaska back yard. It was originally a big block/4speed car but was swapped to a 327 in the early 80's. The engine was covered in leafs, moss and debris and had no air cleaner, headers or half the spark plugs when we got it. The car has been parked since 1984, watch to see if we get it going! Don't pay any attention to the Z28 badges someone added those long ago and it was originally Daytona Yellow not white. More details coming soon....

The birth, build, crash, and death of my bad ass 89 Mustang coupe
I took my eyes off the road for a few seconds while cruising at 55 MPH. When I looked up, I was on the double yellow line and there was someone coming. I panicked, jerked the wheel to the right, and the car started fishtailing. I had just put soft coil overs on the front of the car, and the car had no swaybars front or rear. The suspension didn't do me any favors, a better driver likely could have saved the car, but I just couldn't reel it in. I came off the right side of the road at maybe 50 MPH or so, hit a tree, and ended up barrel rolling the car. Pro tip - trees are hooked to the planet, they don't move easily. Especially large ones.
