The good stuff starts at 1:50, but its remarkable how they start with simple tinkertoys and build up a modern differential. A must see if you are not sure how a diff works. Good science project for kids in school too!

That is a truly awesome old auto shop video.... I'm guessing it was made for an auto shop class back in the 50s... Yet the principles are timeless!

"A drive shaft through the passenger compartment would make it awkward for carrying packages", lol. To say the least!

Yeah, but it would give the kids something to play with on those long trips.:thumbsup:
