There is only one thing better than a race car.. and that’s an OLD race car…
The folks at Revs Institute do extremely important work in their efforts of keeping and preserving the heritage of these significant cars.
The Colliers are special people that through their generosity, make these cars available for people to experience …
I agree with Robert in LA – this is a marvelous series. Tremendous videography, crisp and fluid editing, inspired settings and comprehensive information. So I was amused by the apparent inability of whoever ‘translated’ the narrator’s commentary into closed captions to actually hear English spoken with a British accent and transcribe it accurately. Several examples stood out: “a racing Panhard” became “erasure panel,” and “Motoring” (pronounce “mot’rin,”) became – yep, “motrin.” The question naturally comes to mind, who’s editing the CC editor?
We only translate and subtitle films that are not in English –and yes, British English counts as English 🙂 The CC you’re seeing is automatically generated by YouTube.
The way that we are walked around the engine I found especially useful. These are individual cylinder barrels, surrounded by copper jackets. This keeps the casting problems manageable, lets you replace individual cylinders, and all of that. Given the height of those cylinders, the stroke and therefore the torque output must have been huge. These things were build like tractors.
Thanks for a free Tuesday video that takes us back to the roots of auto-sport. Petrolicious at its best!
What a hoot! Not sure what I like best, the machine or the drivers’ gear! A mechanical marvel in its day and even now at 100+ years. A fun one, thanks!
This series of videos is marvelously diverse. This is perhaps what I enjoy most about this group of videos. Petrolicious is documenting basically all of the major automotive engineering achievements of the 20th century.
