In 1905 Edmond got his first car, a Benz Velo built in 1894. His father had no use of it anymore because he just bought himself a Model T.
Edmond tried to diagnose the malfunction but could not. It happened that Edmond’s friend George was passing by. George was very knowledgeable in physics and engineering. He knew at a glance what went wrong, took off his jacket and set himself to work.
