Video Compilation: Dormant Diesels Starting for the First Time in Decades will Give you a Chill

If you have been under the hood of a car within the last couple of years, you know that automotive technology is very rapidly changing, whether it be in relationship to how your car receives fuel or perhaps how it now might have the ability to do something like use fewer cylinders with a displacement-on-demand setup while on the highway to be more efficient, I guess that you could say that things are getting mighty different from the good old days where all that you would need to work on your cehicle was a good set of wrenches and a can of WD-40. Whether that is for better or worse can be determined by the individual but things have certainly come a long way, under the hood and anybody can see that!

This time, we check out some old school diesel technology that not only has age behind it but has also been sitting for quite some time. Without anybody to love or maintain it, the engines have pretty much been left for dead in most cases but this time, we get to see these machines come back to life with a turn the key! Some of these engine sounds will send a chill down your spine. They might need a little bit of help to get going but once they have some breath in their longs, these moving artifacts chug along and make some glorious sounds.

If you follow along in the video down below, you’ll be able to get the full experience, taking an inside look at what some of these machines are like as they have been laying dormant for all this time, only to be given some TLC that they very much needed and deserved. After laying your eyes on this compilation of videos that’s able to tap into the senses, be sure to tell us which one of these old-school diesel powered monsters you find to be your favorite. There are certainly some very good candidates to pick from and some of these powerhouses might even be able to be put back into use!
