Finding and Starting Up Abandoned Vehicles in the Forest
Some of you may be unaware of the fact that there’s basically a YouTube deep cut category for people who like to hunt down abandoned vehicles in the woods (or other places) and attempt to get them started and drive them away.
New Zealand-based YouTuber Marty T is such a treasure hunter. He specializes in bulldozers, backhoes, front end loaders, and the like, many of them that were abandoned after getting stuck or breaking down in the deep woods.
In this video, Marty is asked by a local landowner to remove an excavator that was abandoned on his property, in the middle of a trail, 16 years ago.
You know those Will It Blend? and Will It Crush? videos. These are sort of the Will It Start? equivalent.
