They have a lot more auto related videos If your interested in subscribing for free their youtube page says>=


Don't forget to check the other ROMANO-ARCHIVES' YouTube Channel: UnknownWW2InColor
Name: Vincent Romano

"SUBSCRIBING here is a MUST for researchers and RARE HISTORICAL FOOTAGE fans!!!"
V. Romano

---The AMERICAN AUTOMOBILE History---
--------------GOLDEN YEARS!!!--------------
---------TIMELINE 1949 - 1970---------
--Brought to You by ROMANO-ARCHIVES--

Vincent Romano and ROMANO-ARCHIVES proudly present one of the most important Car Culture related Project ever promoted in Italy.

The hugest Italian private digital archive related to the American Automobile History, more than 60000 images and over 2000 multimedial files (videos, digitalized film footage, audio recordings, QTVRs and PDF documents) regarding the American Automobile 1899-1970 TIMELINE, is now available for researchers, historians, teachers, students and enthusiasts, in two separated Collections.

One of the purposes of our service is to offer a new approach to the contemporary U.S. History (from an automobile-centric point of view...) to the American students, Schools and Universities.

The Project embeds various cultural specifications.
The researcher will find, besides images and videos regarding almost every model produced during every single year by all the American Automobile Makes (even the smaller ones...), a complete Collection of images regarding the Automobile in the Advertising. It will be possible to watch and print this precious and complete iconography: thousands of Ads from original vintage magazines, automobile related brochures, manuals, posters, most of them acquired in high resolution.
After years of research we can also offer an impressive number of vintage Screen and TV commercials, with pratically no analogies with other private archives in Europe.
But, most of all, we offer a simultaneous trip with the small everyday stories of the Americans at the wheel, and with the big historical events that changed the States (and the World) during the first 70 years of the last Century, with thousands of epoca images and movies related to every single historical moment. From the Automobile getting into the landscape for the first time to the early "no rules" races on the beaches near Daytona; from the introduction of the Ford Model T to the 1917 involvement in WW l; from Prohibitionism to the Wall Street Crisis; and so on, reviving the New Deal, the 1939 Futurama, the industrial conversion of WW II and the post-war reconversion, the early 50ies' cars in the b-movies with the flying soucers, the Rock&Roll era, the futuristic concept cars, Korea, Vietnam, the Psychedelic 60ies...

For us at ROMANO-ARCHIVES, in the end, the Project has reached its goal, giving to the researcher a way to use the Automobile like a key-code, in order to focalize the Spirit of America during the XXth Century. To understand, to revive the past, looking once again (or for the first time...) at those cars, those roads, those people, those events.

Here we present a selection from the part of our Multimedia Collection covering the years from 1949 to 1970.

like that fire piston thing eh? I made a large one out of brass, aluminum, and 3 o-rings. Unfortunately the beautiful thing lost compression and I have to get me some new piston rings for it

That is a great old video. amazing to see those old engines and the people developing them.

I always hear from the wvo crowd that the Diesel engine was developed to burn peanut oil. Didn`t hear that mentioned at all.
But then this film was produced by Shell oil.

thank you for sharing this.

Since the video was put together by Shell oil ,I'm sure they were biased towards promoting anything but petroleum.I've seen recently that Mercedes and Bp are investing in Jatropha biodiesel prodution ,so alternative diesel fuels can't be as bad as some would have us believe.

Jathropa is quite big in India, its also actively being subsidised by local state governments and in some states you can find it being sold for 50 cents a gallon although in limited number of pumps. Recently MB India invested heavily into Jathropa plantations and even did a highly successful test run with a C220 that was driven all the way down from south of India to the Himalayas. The C220 was unmodified and ran on jathropa fuel alone.

Not true. Shell is only mentioned at the start of the film and in the "The End" logo after the credits. The only thing promoted in the video was the Diesel engine and its efficiency advantages over steam, hot bulb, gas and gasoline engines, not the fuel it uses.

Because its "Made by Big Oil" does not automatically mean its produced simply to sell their products. Its a video of the Diesel engine's history and its differences from the other 4 common types (for the time) of heat engines.

The only problem with jatropha oil is that by the time it gets into circulation Algae production will have eclipsed it in production capacity and cost effectiveness.

So,,, You mean to tell me a company that sells a product won't be biased to only promote what they sell . It's common sense they would promote their product above others.

Have you actually watched the video? If you did you wouldn't be guessing.
