Most of what I'm asking about here are post '64 cars, but I think I'm good with this post because this is a pretty cool project I have that I think will sound cool to some of y'all (and because I daily-drive my 60 Chevy). I work(ed) for an old man who had lots of old cars. He has passed and I will be selling them off for the estate (I'll post it on the HAMB when the time comes but most aren't very HAMBy cars). Most have been sitting for most of the past 10 to 20 years with an occaisional start up now and then. There are a few late 30s to 40s cars but these are all restored, expensive, and ready to roll. My concern is with the late 60s to early 80s cars...some are lame, but there are some Toronados, Rivieras ('66 and up), 2-dr convt. Cadillacs. Nothing to get tooo excited about except that all of the cars are low mileage (like 20K) and in time-warp condition. I'll be in charge of selling them off...about 35-40 cars, I think. What do I need to do to be safe about starting these up and running them a bit? I know the brakes have to work before I drive down the road, that kind of thing...I'm talking about a car that hasn't been started in years and not wrecking the motor because of insufficient oil circulation, or damaging something by trying to start a car with a seized motor. Ideas?
