Benz tricycle starting
A Benz tricycle being started although on the day I filmed this it was being stubborn and did start eventualy.
It produces a maximum of 0.75HP at about 400RPM running on floor polish. This polish/cleaner has naptha oil in it and this is what it would have run on when first built in 1886. Think of it as a stationary engine on wheels with a park bench on top!

Invention of the Automobile documentary clip
This is a clip from a documentary that aired in the late 1990's and may prove helpful to people who don't really understand where the car originated from. The documentary leaves out some key milestones, like the first 3-wheeled Diamler of the late 1800's, but is accurate overall. There's also a section on horse and carriage traffic and the start of the used car business.
I do not claim any ownership over the copyrights to this video. It was recorded off the TV around 1995 and I have not seen it anywhere since, so I thought I would share it with the world. This video has not been monetized and therefore I am not earning revenue from it.
