1942 Dodge - Starting after 33 years of storage Trophies: 0 Give this video a trophy

Let me just start out by saying I had no clue what I was doing. I wanted to catch the restart of this car on camera. I flushed the fuel tank and lines and expected gas to just get to the engine via the fuel pump. I spent my summer weekends trying and trying and trying to get it going, getting so close several times. Eventually I rebuilt the carb, (again no clue) and finally someone suggested a shot of ether. I had over a hour of recorded failed attempts which I have editted into about 7 minutes of stupidity. The music only seems appropriate. The car was restarted in 1998. I've learned a little since then.
