Yeah it’s still kicking around.Still got that pretend kangaroo there?
Yeah there was definitely more too it to get, and keep it moving. Not like todays cars. And yeah i think the spark had to be advanced as you accelerated to keep the engine on the boil.Watched a doco on a human crash test dummy in the 50's.
He lived longer than what you'd think.
Driving must of been a real skill then. I'd assume you'd have to advance the spark the same time as the throttle?
Bit like now how trucks are going all auto. Anyone can do it. Skill is gone.
Yeah, too right. They still had some wrinkles to iron out in subsequent models. COMPLETELY unexpected Master of Puppets inclusion there, by the way. Rock on!! I wonder if that was part of the original broadcast?yep, figured it would be, but was hoping for a Geelong player in kit to be in the driver's seat
BTW it looks like they were a bear to drive
