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.

I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1968 Pontiac Firebird. It's
powered by the original, numbers matching 400 V8 4 BBL, backed by a
four-speed manual trans. The red paint is slick and the interior looks
like new. It's equipped with the PMD (Pontiac Motor Division) rally
wheels, BF Goodrich tires, hood mounted tach, and a black vinyl top. It's
a great example of late 60's GM muscle. I hope you find it interesting,
thanks for taking a look!
