Can an Abandoned 1968 Buick LeSabre Start and Drive After Sitting 26 years?
If you are reading this, there’s a 99-percent probability that you are a car enthusiast. If you are, then at some point you’ve probably been romanticizing about finding an abandoned car, restoring it, and driving it. Such a feat would certainly be worthy of been immortalized in the automotive archives, or in this case, most likely YouTube. Speaking of which, this video from Vice Grip Garage just so happens to showcase “rescues” like these.
We don’t think a day goes by when we don’t hear about a super car crashing here or a stupid driver carelessly swerving there, but it is a rare opportunity when a stunt actually goes as planned. Maybe it’s because drivers just don’t have the skills needed to succeed at the task at hand or maybe cars just aren’t made like they used to be. Either way, we’re more likely to see the disastrous end of a gnarly machine then see it go for the gold in any of the tricks set before it.
This is why we are ecstatic to present this 30-year-old piece of junk - aka a Buick LeSabre - that has enough gusto to jump as high as four feet at 100mph gaining a huge amount of respect from us, not for the naive driver at the wheel, but for his lucky ride that is dead set on working overtime.
And for the crash hungry that can’t seem to get enough of compressed sheet metal, shimmy on down past the jump to check out a brand new Camaro as it demonstrates how not to make the jump.
