1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Cold Start

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.

Very Smokey OLD Cold Start
Well, she sat in a garden bed for years, then was skull dragged to another garden bed for another period of extended time. How long has it been sitting around ? you tell me. And, if it's been sitting around for AGGES - Its like the unspoken law almost.. MUST get the $hitbox running, breath some life into it again ! Apart from the madness of getting it running, todays mission : Pull the good bits out for the rally car, scrap the rest. Enjoy Folks! Theauzzylife
