Sept. 27, 2019: Henry Ford

While other auto makers wanted to design luxury cars, Henry Ford designed a car that anyone could afford. Here he is standing by that very car. From the collections of The Henry Ford and Ford Motor Company.

On September 27 1908, Henry Ford manufactured his first Model T automobile, which left his famous Piquette Avenue plant in Detroit Michigan. His company would eventually make over FIFTEEN MILLION of them over the next 2 decades. Eventually Volkswagen eclipsed that mark in the 1970’s in a much different world.

What was your very first car? And what is one crazy thing that happened in that car back when you were young and dumb?
