A few weeks ago, I saw a post on Facebook about a 68 Firebird that a guy was thinking about selling. Someone posted that they thought it was worth about $3700. So I offered the owner $3500 and he accepted. I was also willing to haul it away, quickly so that helped the deal go through.

Anyway – there were many unknowns. Including how well the car would run. The owner asked if I wanted to hear him start it when I picked it up and I opted not to because I assumed it had old gas in the tank.

A week or so after I got it home, I attempted to drain the tank. It was basically empty. So I went out and bought 10 gallons of premium gas and put it in the tank.

Then I went up and hit the key.

It started!

I’m excited to get this new 50 year old bird running to work and school and around town. Will keep you posted as we get it cleaned up and on the road!
