1969 Camaro RS/SS First Start up in 28 Years
Work 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....

First Engine Start FW190
FW190A-8 Werknummer 173056 quickly roared to life Sept. 21, 2009 after 8
1/2 years of restoration work on the four major components of 173056: Tail,
fuselage, wings and engine. Located at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport at PAI
Aero, this restoration is a project of Don and Linda Hansens engineering
company. The engine was started but shut down quickly as a precaution due
to lack of oil pressure indication - found later to be an incorrect
pressure sender. Major Frank Hohmann from Flug-Werk in Gammelsdorf, Germany
worked intently for most of September, as did Don Hansen and crew Rusty
Gautreaux, Danny Trogé and Stephen Hansen to complete engine rigging. This
de-preservation/pre-oiling run was a smoky success, with the 2000HP Ash82T
engine starting instantly on the first try after 30 years in storage. The
first flight is planned for Summer, 2010.
