My 1968 Pontiac Firebird had been parked up for a week in sub-zero temperatures.
So, I thought it would be a good idea to crank it over and warm it through a little. I'd recently had an MSD ignition system and new Edelbrock carb installed, so was also interested to find out how easy it was to start after sitting.
The Pontiac was started with no choke. I cranked it over initially just to make sure everything was free, and to get the oil moving a little, then popped the bonnet to check the hoses. After that, and with a few pumps of the pedal, off it went!
The car is a bit of a project, but it's road legal. I'll be doing some more videos on it soon, so stay tuned.
If you enjoyed the video, please take a second to give it a thumbs up, add it to a favourites list, or share it. It's always appreciated.

1974 Pontiac Firebird
The Pontiac Firebird was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors
between 1967 and 2002. The Firebird was introduced the same year as the
automaker's platform-sharing model, the Chevrolet Camaro. This coincided with the
release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, which shared its platform with another
pony car, the Ford Mustang.
The second generation debut for the 1970 model year was delayed until
February 26, 1970, because of tooling and engineering problems. Replacing
the "Coke bottle" styling was a more "swoopy" body style, with the top of
the rear window line going almost straight down to the lip of the trunk
lid. This look was to epitomize F-body styling for the longest period
during the Firebird's lifetime. The 1974 models featured a redesigned
"shovel-nose" front end and new wide "slotted" taillights.

Old start/Cold Start Rudy's 1963 Mack B81 w/ 711 Mack Turbo Diesel. First start in 10+ years.
Rudy hauled home his most recent purchase today, a 1963 Mack B81. Two fresh
batteries got it to crank after some tinkering with the terminals. Had to
spray some PB in the turbo and pry it
free with a screwdriver. Started on ether. It's not drawing any fuel at the
moment, that's a project for another day. For now we found out his
contraption is a runner!

Cold Start the 1968 Plymouth Valiant! Crank it...
Hi! Gonna cold start this 1968 Plymouth Valiant! My friend Agent 0826
bought this sweet old Valiant last summer and he loves driving it. He
parked it for the winter, so we thought we'd come out and start it up after
it had been sitting, drifted in deep snow and cold for months...
Cold Start the 1971 Citroen DS 21 Safari!
Cold War Motors just bought this great old Citroen DS. It's a bit tatty and
will need a restoration (as soon as I'm finished my other one!), but still
runs and drives nicely. These old Cits are a bit grumpy in the cold, and
this one hasn't been on the road for a while now, so the battery was pretty
tired. I hooked up some cables to a better battery to see if we could get
her running for a last little drive before it gets put into storage. I just
love these cars, and I wanted a break (wagon) to go with my sedan. This one
is a standard shift with power steering and brakes. Looks like Stella
wants to go for a ride, too!
