$250 1997 Ford Explorer | First Start After Sitting For 1 Year
I CAN'T RESPOND TO COMMENTS. GOOGLE+ IS MESSED UP ON MY ACCOUNT!!!! Recently obtained a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport, and this is the first time it's started in over a year. We recently moved to a new house, and I noticed this truck sitting near the house. I talked to the landlord and found out that a previous renter had left this Explorer there due to an electrical problem. She said scrap wouldn't even give her $200 for it, so I said I'll buy it for $250. The plan is for me to fix it, get it in good shape again, and sell it for a profit. It's a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport. It's the 2-door model, 4.0l OHV pushrod V6, 5-speed manual transmission, dual range 4WD. It has 342,429 miles on it (551,086 kilometers), which is a lot. I took a look at it, and came up with a list of problems on it. I was unsure if it'd be worth it, if I'd be able to make a profit. But I didn't want to it to go to the junkyard. I decided I would try and get it to start. I didn't want to spend a lot of money since I didn't know if it had a major internal problem. I ended up paying $160 or so for new battery terminals, a new starter solenoid, and a new starter motor. Starter motor was a PITA to replace because of Ford's ridiculous engineering, but I got it done. And it started right up!! As you can tell, I was happy about it. With the engine running, I had the chance to test everything. The only things that don't work are the A/C, power mirrors, headlights, and rear wiper. But I will go on and try and fix those things. Next step is to change out the fluids. New oil, new oil filter, new coolant, and new power steering fluid. Also gonna change out the air filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. With all that done, I'm gonna make a run to the junkyard to make this thing driveable (seat doesn't stay upright and steering wheel is loose). Then gotta get it cleaned up and registered. I can definitely keep posting videos as this thing progresses!

1909 Cadillac First Drive First Start in 79 Years
This is a follow up to the earlier 1909 Cadillac first start. Bob took his first drive in his 1909 Cadillac Model 30 touring September 1, 2013. He has owned this car for and been working on the restoration on and off for 46 years. The last time this Cadillac drive under its own power was in 1933, 80 years ago. There are still some bugs to work out, but it moves!. Update, this is the first actual drive for Bob's Cadillac. For the original first start of the engine see the other video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4ZUsd-rqIE

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....

1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 289 V8 50xxx Actual Miles
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7. This beauty only has about 50,xxx original miles and it really looks great. It's powered by the original 289 V8 and it has been really nicely restored under the hood. All the power is sent through a C4 automatic to an 8" rear with 2.73 gears. The interior looks to be all original and extremely well kept as well. This really is a great car all the way around. Thanks for checking it out!

Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes, and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible.
