  • Ninty years ago today

    Henry Ford stamped a big 1 on the first block on this day in 1927. I doubt he could have imagined so many still in use 90 years later.

      Henry deep in the woods
      by Beauford
      I do a lot of metal detecting for Civil War relics and went to a 1840s home site to hunt deep in the woods. These original foundations would be reused and built open years later if the original structure burned or was beyond repair. Often you can see the signs of people occupying the dwelling up until the 30s. Just about every hunt you think your detector has found a civil war belt buckle but after...

      Today is Henry Ford's Birthday
      by BudP
      On this day in 1863, during the depths of the Civil War, future automaker Henry Ford was born.

      Ford didn’t invent the automobile. Nor did he invent the assembly line. But he put those two ideas together and combined them with a relentless effort to make a product that was both functional and affordable. Said Ford:
      I will build a motor car for the great multitude. It will be large enough

      American Icon: How Alan Mullaly Saved the Ford Motor Company
      by Jeff/Illinois
      This is a good book for all you Ford fans if you are looking to pass some winter weather time indoors. Some neat points they make in the book, in relation to Model A Fords, was the story of 'how' the Model A came about (we've all heard it still interesting) but also later Alan Mullaly makes reference to how they pulled Ford out of the brink of disaster after he took over in Sept. 2006, akin to what...

      This proves it

      Henry on the left driving his 999 racer in 1903.

      This proves that Henry was a hotrodder.

      I bet he would approve of us carrying on his tradition.

      Electric Cars 1870's -- Prior to Gas Engines
      by H. L. Chauvin
      A few years ago one of my family members died and we were going through our family estate colonial historical documents in our ancient land grant estate house.

      We found a later 1905 dated post card written to my grandfather from his Godchild who was studying to become Priest at the Marist Seminary in Maryland.

      He described how the night before, his seminary student friend...

      Why a Model A
      by Fixitphil
      The reason I bought my 1931 Sport Coupe was that I've always had a yearn to own another one. I bought this one at age 77 as a hobby for my retirement years. I've owned "Baby" for 6 months and hope to have the restoration done in another couple of months.
      My parents always talked of the good ole days and the Model A was always in the conversation.
      I owned a Tudor in High School,...

      Ford Model A assembly line
      by Jeff/Illinois
      Nothing new, most of you have seen this before, but it is still fun to watch! Ford was good about documenting and filming their operations we're glad today that they did.

      That guy on the main line connecting the engine to the drivetrain must have been the Main Man he appears in still photos a lot too.

      Off topic, but try to indulge us..
      by Larry Jenkins
      Funny things happen when you get old. You seem to remember old things. Both my wife and I are in our mid eighties. Went though 2.5 Model A restorations during our 65 years of marriage. Oh yeah.. 4 kids too.

      The thing I remember most is when I met her. August 11,1951. 67 years ago. Kinda proud about that. But don't ask me what I had for lunch yesterday..
