This time-lapse engine tear down video is the coolest thing you’ll see today How A Car Works/YouTube

Watching this stop-motion video of the tear down of a 1.6-liter Miata engine will take your breath away. While we all know an actual person disassembled this engine, the video is so well made that you can let yourself drift away into fantasy land and just pretend that each little part is alive and just doing what it wants.

The YouTube channel How A Car Works posted the video and their music selection is excellent, if you’re into the 1980’s. According to Jalopnik, the project took 15 days and required 2,500 photos to create. The video creator, Alex Muir, really took his time with this one. If you want to learn about cars, definitely check out their channel–they have a ton of detailed information on, well, how a car works.
