      Mr Ford strived for vertical integration,the complete control of the manufacturing process,raw materials from his holdings were processed and manufactured in his industrial complex to be marketed in delearships controlled by him.
      The drive toward this goal was embodied by the Rouge complex, an American Industrial achievement unparalleled..its first product in its entirety was the Model A,the basic design of which propelled Ford through 20 years of manufacturing progress,and during that time was unrivaled in its capability.Others may have outsold and out produced him by unit,but no manufacturer could match him in control of the process..

      "I will build a motor car for the great multitude...constructed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one-and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God's great open spaces."

          Totally disillusioned
          by carolinamudwalker
          I watched an old show from the history channel called 'THE CARS THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT' I am totally disillusioned. Henry did not build the model A. He fought it until the day he became demented. He built the model "T" and the assembly line. He would not listen to his son and drove Ford motor company to near bankruptcy. I hear " Keep the car as henry built it" all the...

          Where is FLOP from Pittsburgh?
          by Tom Wesenberg
          FLOP use to post pictures of his Model A rust repairs and metal shaping, and he did excellent work. I wish he would start posting on this site, as I really enjoyed watching his repairs.

          I found this link to some of his work, by doing a Google search. His posting could even help someone wanting to do their own repairs.

          Fender Repair Fixture
          by Larry Jenkins
          In one of my old articles that Mitch posted, there's one about a Fender Repair Fixture that some of you asked about. In that there are no more patterns, I did contact the person I gave the last original steel one to. I asked him if he would sell it.
          His response was, paraphrased, have someone contact me ([email protected]) and I will give it to him/her if they pay shipping to them. ...

          If you have changed yours, who did you get it from? How long have you had it and have you had any problems with it?
