Barnfind Bugeyes

Wow, 6 Bugeye Barn Find. Interesting inventorying each car and then trying to start each car. Spoiler Alert, Car # 1 moves on it's own power by the end of the video doing nothing more than feeding fresh gas into the car, validating there is oil in the engine and coolant in the radiator. MC Is of course trashed but I was impressed with how little it took to get this car going. They ended up starting the car in gear with no Brakes or Clutch and drove it around the building where these Bugeyes are currently housed. There is also a Related Video titled Will # 2 Start that I have not watched yet.

Steve installed my engines I built in two of his aluminum body Sprites, one supercharged with Sherrock SC,and one with carbs. I just figured out who he is when you mention Skunk River Restorations.

I found a one owner BE in Texas that had been in a barn since 1986. When the owner got finished painting it, it would not run. Connected the high tension lead and it started and ran on the brown gunk in the gas tank. Tough little engines. the restoration is nearly complete
