1976 Pontiac Grand Safari 455 Cold Start in -12 degree weather
Firing up a 1976 Pontiac with over 218,000 original miles on a -12 degree day so my driveway could be plowed. The car has plenty of issues, but it NEVER fails to start in any weather despite sitting outside year-round. Wagon is NOT for sale! CORRECTION - David G has been kind enough to point out that at 2:41, I indicate that the block heater had been plugged in. This was actually not the case. I do normally keep it plugged in during frigid weather, but on this occasion, I unplugged it the night before because my neighbor was going to plow my drive when he finished his commercial accounts overnight. Due to the unusually severe weather, he didn't get home until midday which is why I was out shoveling by hand in -12. I didn't offer this explanation in my commentary as I was trying to keep the video length under 20 minutes. Thank you for watching, and for those who are emotionally distressed by this shocking revelation, I'm sorry I'm such a horrible deceitful bastard.
