How about a specific question. Some location info and current car info would be helpful, like on mine.

Near Manassas Va. '65 220S, 2006 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, '99 Volvo V70, '72 350SL 4 speed

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Sitting in southwest New Mexico, which is a good mothball area,
Rubber and associated seals usually affected first.
$2-300 asked.
Usually pull plugs, squirt oil in cylinders and crank on the long unused engines (after oil and water check).
Then try a little fire and fuel.
Are auto trans kits available?
Ze carbs?
Any advice?
Thanks,
Tom
