Russ the mechanic and I just started the engine on the super special barn Bugeye we have for sale (see current inventory). This car hasn’t run since 1988, but because it was stored in such a wonderful dry California climate, everything is still in good shape. We soaked the rings in marvel mystery oil for a while before we turned over the engine. And we cranked it with no plugs to make sure the oil pressure came up. Then we rigged a temporary fuel supply and you can see what happens next in the video below!
