  • Hey everyone, thanks for all the encouragement in the comments. Clearly there are a lot of things I should have done differently, but from what I've read from some of you, that's just part of the hobby. I'm fire d'up to get going on the Imperial again this year. Just yesterday I was at James' installing some new brake hard-lines to match the fresh brake components, and it just felt good to be wrenching again- even if I was on my back in the dirt with decades-old grease and grime falling in my eyes. Thanks for watching. - Nolan

    • you need to find a guy who is into these older cars. like the youtuber running vice grip garage. he is a special character on screen but know his way around these old machines and their issues. he drives around the country buying and repairing old cars that have been sitting for decades. often fix them on the spot so he can drive it home.

    • LIke you said, these things can take YEARS of constant work or off and On work. Plus money. Also since your a 'black-thumb[fuk yeah mad max reference!]' it's easy to assume that "even if I was on my back in the dirt with decades-old grease and grime falling in my eyes." you'll get a face shield now that their SUPER plentiful in stock this year [lol covid, sorry covid really sucks] but the memories will fade abit and the patina of "awesome build memories" will form on that vehicle. Much like leaving the military I'm told. You leave with ALL the bad memories fresh, but years later you consider re-upping because you remember the good times. The camaraderie, easy answers because of rigid rules etc. Then someone reminds you of burning tubs of human waste in the desert with diesel fuel for several hours every other week and you IMMEDIATELY give up those bad\good thoughts! Suffice to say, your Imperial, and Dart projects will be Alot better memory wise! I'm not saying good luck with your projects because, Hey. You don't need it! Have fun.

    • Nolan; getting an old engine running is basic if it's not locked up or internally damaged. Pressure check your cooling system, do an oil pressure check with the plugs out, and a compression test thereafter. Once those have been sorted, On your Polytech V8; I seem to remember you set the point gap for .0006; ignition timing at 12 degrees BTDC and unless you have a factory carb, you'd do well to go for a Holley 600 CFM if your intake is 4-barrel. Use a GM P7127SE 1-wire to convert your car to 12 volts so you run a normal battery and stuff. As it's Automatic, you'll be setting idle at 1100 RPM +/- 75RPM. If you do an automatic choke; set the spring where it just barely has the strength to close the choke flap at room temperature. If you need to anything else, consult ALLPAR dot com; there should still be articles on the Polytech Hemi. Have fun; good luck!

  • I got an AE86 GTS coupe that hasn't ran in 17 years at the time of purchase. I had no car experience whatsoever aside from basic car maintenance like oil and brake change I really felt like I was way over my head with this car and still dealing with so many issues to include rod knock. After two years I finally got her to run and it was the BEST FEELING EVAR Anybody who is feeling discouraged from their project just remember to take it one step at a time. Do everything that YOU can do, save money for professional service when something is truly out of your realm of skill level. Remember that it's a project car. Have fun with it

  • theres a 1953 Buick super i found for $500 it has engine, body trim, easy to fix rust (door and rocker), but no upholstry, the engine is also not a popular one so theres no performance parts for it and theres no luck finding easy upholstery, also if i decide i need more power i don't want to take up my dads time having him help me do a engine swap again like he did in my truck because he's the one with all the tools, the knowledge, and the garage and his own project car that hes been waiting to build since he sold his truck and duster before i was born and he deserves his share of fun so if i do buy it, it will be getting the side yard treatment like that 350 Chevy block sitting in my backyard under a garbage bag, wheelbarrow, and 2 ft of snow

  • Very much been there. Luckily I had a friend that taught me. My current car is a rolling project. Bought a good base car I knew I wanted to rag around trackdays as often I can afford so left the engine alone. Reliability trumps power for that purpose. Nolan's advice is sound.

  • I'm not knocking your experience video problems Etc? But after 50 plus years of doing this old cars are my forte also it's a point ignition standard fuel system take the engine out take the engine apart clean all the guck out of it and you can get it running again if someone expects to put fresh gas in it and get the engine running that doesn't fly a project car is strictly that you tear it apart I wish I had that car because I love old cars if you paid too much for it maybe $500 too much or whatever? It's still a point, carburetor engine so shouldn't be a problem unless you expect to pay $2,000 for engine parts where in my case it's all labor and basics good luck

  • That’s too funny! I bought a 65 Dodge Dart senior year of high school. 5 years later she is still my daily driver. Best advice for buying a project car is to find a car that will at least idle. It doesn’t have to run perfectly but at least when an engine is running you can diagnose problems easier. Plus if it runs... you know that you have compression, spark and fuel right off the bat. Makes life easier

  • Your dad is super cool! Have you rebuilt/ had rebuilt/ replaced the carb yet? If you have never done one before see if you can find one like yours and try rebuilding it. There is no shame in admitting "this is beyond my pay grade" and trying to find someone local or opening up the latest Holley or Edelbrock catalog. Funny project car story, having learned my lesson from a Mercedes 300 SEL / Ford 300 Straight6 swap that I planned out when I was 16 that never happened (never count on help from a relative if that relative is an alcoholic) I vowed to only buy projects that would start and run. Many many years later I found a Galaxie 500 at a Yard sale for $500. It was a 2 door fast back and I knew it was as close to Richard Petty's Torino as my crippled checkbook would every take me. I handed over the cash, put in a battery and a couple gallons of gas and drove it home. I would start it every now and then, she always fired up no problem. My health kept getting worse and and at some point I had to take the dream of my Petty Blue Ford in to the back yard and shoot it. Not the first or last dream I have had to go "Ol' Yeller" on but it sucks every time. I finally found someone who was interested in her. By then the drum brakes had locked up and she would not start for anything. He got her loaded up and to his place. According to him the carb was full of asphalt like sludge and had to be replaced. HE also had to put some fancy electronic ignition on it to make it run. This is a car I drove home (about 12 miles) and that would start first crank no problem for years. This just goes to show even "simple" carb and point set ups can go bad just setting. Really bad. I have reason to believe the guy had worked on a lot more cars than I had, he had a lot more money to play with. SO I think he knew what he was doing. Best of luck with the Imperial and don't forget about that Dart. I hope your dad is still around and healthy. If so I hope you get to take him for a ride in both the Impearl and the Dart.

Starter works? If so, pull a plug wire check for spark. Got spark? Ad starting fluid in cylinder directly. It's not that hard to diagnose these old cars.

  • 1st of all, great score on that Imp man you got a heck of a good one for sure. Only thing I could add is "don't get caught up on the Budget Build crap". Every build is a "budget build" but they NEVER tell you what that budget is. Resto-Mods, Rat Rods, LS Swaps are all ways to go, but it ALL costs money and it's usually 2-10X more money than you where expecting. When people ask me what they should do to their car it's simple. Drive it. Manual Drum breaks are FINE, they used them for YEARS, you won't DIE the second you hit the freeway because your car has 1950's Tech going on. Fix what it takes to get it on the road THE WAY IT IS, and upgrade from there. Back in the 70's and 80's we didn't have Rat Rods. Those where guys who where Driving Their Projects and having fun with them as they went along. Good Luck on the both these man. You have some real gems there.

  • Nolan, I'm right there with you man. Back in April of 2020, I bought myself a project luxury car too. A 1976 Cadillac Coupe Deville D'elegance. The car was technically running when I bought it, but not very well. So, I began doing the standard things one does when they get an old car. Change the oil, replace the sparkplugs and wires, battery, alternator, etc. I ended up wanting to do more with the car though, such as replace the carb and intake for more power, and run a better exhaust system. It all started to become an issue of money, and as a result, the car has been parked up for some time now. I am committed to the project though and do hope to have it done or at least to my satisfaction by the end of this year. I wish you the best of luck with your projects.

  • Old cars can be depressingly expensive. What have you taken off engine? What diagnosis did you try? Did you even take carbs off and spent a few quid reconditioning them? Man this is vague. Has it turned over? Did it spark? There is a list you can go down...staring at an engine attached to a flat battery ain't gonna do shit. Once the simple stuff doesn't work it has to go to a shop and your budget has to cope. You have to have a friendly garage who'll not be charging you top money to even consider buying a not running car. The thought of that old auto gearbox mskes me shudder too.. Playin with brakes is just that, playing. Good playing when its not freezing cold tho. Btw, sourcing the mechanic handbook for your car is 100 times better thsn any you tube video. I'd even say it should be mandatory!

  • I just watched my '94 Celica leave on a flatbed today after finally giving in, and having to get something more reliable. I bought it cheap, and wanted to get it fixed up and keep it for as long as I could. Over the 4 months Ive had it, its true ugliness started to reveal itself. Truth is, the previous owner did not take proper care of it, and I didnt have the time and money to keep getting new parts to replace the ones that have failed. The nail in the coffin came when I couldnt fix a massive oil leak that put it in limp mode. It sat beached on my driveway for a week until I put money down on a 2018 corolla with 18k on it...its not my dream car,but itll keep me from having to borrow my moms van to get to work.. cause nobody wants that 🙃 Point is- its real easy to get in over your head when you finally have something you like. its easy to forget that theres some things that you just cant do on your own without having the knowledge to properly take care of it. A 94 celica isnt the rarest car in the world,but it certainly was difficult to find oem parts for it, especially obscure trim pieces. I am sad that she had to leave, but truth was: 1-it was an automatic, 2- it was the base 1.8L ST, and 3-it was approaching the 200k mark, which is typically engine rebuild territory, and something Ive never done. so in the end, Its probably better this way....but once that corolla is paid off, Im going for a GT4.

  • I think one point that struck me the most was whether or not your next project car suits your driving needs/wants. One of my dream cars was a Chevy Corvair. I thought they were super cool ever since I was really little and saw one flipping end over end in a grainy film (don't ask why). Well, I finally scored one, got it running, started driving it, and then immediately sold it. I couldn't get past the fact that it was a tiny econo-box. It was fun to drive around corners, but sitting in humid Florida heat in traffic every day broiling with zero AC and black vinyl was the final straw. It was absolutely no fun after that. I still love that car in how it looked and handled, but will never own one again because there were too many short comings elsewhere. Now I own a '65 TBird (with AC!) and am totally happy driving it any time anywhere! Not my first choice in looks, but checks all my other boxes!
