Success! After some troubleshooting of the wiring and coil box switch, my friend and I were able to start my 1912 Flanders 20 for the first time, here is a link to the Youtube video:

Impressive! Great looking car. I'm sure it presented a few challenges.

Not much better than the feeling of the first time you hear an old car fire off and you are the resurrector. :D

There is nothing else like a first start. I'm so happy for you.
And the Flanders is one we don't see.
Thanks for sharing it with us.

When did I do that?

Thank you for sharing your moment of your first start, Mark. When you raised your arms in exhultation I realized that I was smiling right along with you. A great moment, recorded for history.
