  • 1928 ford video

    Notice at the end how they baby the car. mechanical brakes are no good. The car can't handle rough roads, or railroad tracks at speed. Model a overheat on long pulls. Thank dog for modern improvements!

    Probably seen this before but still fun to watch[/video]

    Thanks for sharing this Jim!

    Your posting reminded me of this collection of old car related films, shorts and cartoons. Unfortunately they won't play on most mobile devices, but should be fine on your PC or laptop. Check out the blurb at the top of the page.

    Watch old movies and commercials all about the automobile

          I love black and white flicks! It is so much easier to concentrate on the essential point or points the film maker wants to present. The online tools and lifts (engine) are so practical: not a torque wrench in sight. Color pics and film might be necessary for something like portrayal of an intestinal feature in medical pics/film but black and white requires more intellectual involvement and, therefore, a greater possibility of learning and retention. Attended a lecture last night on the rebuild of an early 1928 transmission and while my experience has been limited to a single rebuild of a 1929 transmission, I learned a lot because of my limited experience and the fact that the black and white illustrations and photos forced me to engage with the subject matter.
