  1. UUUh… the guy in the video proclaims that Mercedes is the “inventor” of the modern car. I guess he’s never heard of Ford.

  2. Hehe.. let the trans atlantic car dispute begin :)

    Alright.. Carl Benz designed his first car in 1878, Henry Ford apparently finished his first motor vehicle (the “Quadricycle”) in 1896.

    That’s at least what Wikipedia says.

  3. This video was great.
    The “text” notes were very informative and helpful.

    Very well done!

    I can’t wait for part 3!

  4. What is the wide lens that he uses in the video?
    The nd filter its 4nd or 8nd?

    thanks great movie !!!

  5. Quote Wiki: “[…] Although several other German engineers (including Gottlieb Daimler, Wilhelm Maybach, and Siegfried Marcus) were working on the problem at about the same time, Karl Benz generally is acknowledged as the inventor of the modern automobile.”
