History of Vehicles
Some people knew Henry Ford as the father of the automobile, even though he didn't built the first gasoline car in the US. The first gasoline-powered car built in the US was by the Duryea brothers in fall 1893. The first car Ford built was in 1896 and was called the quadricycle which looked like a square box with wheels on it, and to think that we came all this way from a box to the cars of today. One thing Ford should be acknowledge with, was the production line. This made cars get assemble faster and created more jobs for people in the United States. When Ford built the Model T in 1908,the car made it possible for anybody who wanted one could get one. The Model T (in picture to left) was reasonably priced, reliable, easy to control, and efficient. With the growing demand of the Model T in the U.S. Ford had to find a larger area for production. In 1910 Ford open a new factory in Highland Park, Michigan. In 1913, the assembly line started where each man adds one component to the car as it moves down the line. By 1918 half the cars in the US were Model T's. During this time Ford had the largest automobile manufacturer in the world.
