How Do You Start a 1905 Cadillac?

Judging by this video from the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, it’s a very complicated process. I’d figured there’d be a crank involved, but all of those other steps? And why would anyone put a lever on the back of a seat? Good thing the electric starter came along shortly thereafter—according to Wikipedia, Cadillacs had them beginning in 1912.

Speaking of the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, if you’re ever in the area (it's not that far from Edmonton), it’s well worth a look. Besides a ton of great cars, they also have agricultural equipment and airplanes. Like most museums, not everything is on display at once. Your best chance to see the cars is their annual History Road event, generally held in June.

OKAY, NO IDEA WHY VIDEO NO LONGER ATTACHED, BUT HERE'S A CURRENT LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL9WJMFQJkM
