Fired Right Up

I just watched a video of a guy starting an old Model A Ford.  It had been sitting in a garden for decades, almost completely rusted out.  After refilling fluids, cleaning points, and doing basic vehicle maintenance, such as changing tires, he managed to fire it up and drive it.

That kind of thing is awesome, to me.  Seeing something old, derelict and all but abandoned come back to life to work as it did the last time it was used, hits all the right spots in my brain.  Maybe it's a 'feel-good' thing.  Maybe it just gives me hope.  Either way, it's pretty cool.
