  • Henry Ford Sure Built an Empire

    Remember those souvenir picture postcards that fold out into a long string of pictures?
    I wish this one would be reproduced.
    It sure is amazing what an empire Henry built, and in a relatively short amount of time.

      In the 4th picture, notice the very step ramp that the cars drove down when leaving the factory, and they only had 2 wheel brakes.

        I highly recommend reading or listing to the book "I invented the modern age". Tom is correct, it is amazing.

          I wonder where all that great old machinery is today.

              Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford
              by Soapy
              Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford has been open for several weeks now with limited numbers of visitors, reservations required on an hour by hour basis, and memberships extended until October. It was a great experience this morning. Reasonably cool, guides everywhere, but no crowds. The train whistles, the carousel music, Model A service vehicles going here and there, it was great to be back....

              Early photograph of Ford Prototype with Henry Ford & my grandfather!
              by mkm5
              Good morning!

              I have an old picture my grandfather passed down that was said to have been of he and Henry Ford, along with others, around an early prototype which appears to be a clay and steel or wood model.

              My mother said it was from 1909, but it looks more like late teens or early 20s to me. My grandfather is the tall fellow looking through the center window from behind...

              This proves it
              by pooch
              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.

              One that is used for 92 years must be the ultimate test

              Henry Ford Picnic

              So sorry to post this so late but I have been brain dead. I am sure if you didn't preregister someone will be glad to take your $15.00/person and let you partake in the festivities.

              Come out and enjoy the Diamond Tread's 50th anniversary party and get a button and I think a window sticker for your Model A.

              The Model A Ford as Henry Ford Built It
              by Tom Wesenberg
              This is one of the first books I bought about Model A's. It's one of the "must have" books for every Model A owner.
              I see this can still be bought new, but the price has really gone up. It's $46 in the Bratton's catalog.

              by Steve Plucker
              How many of you at one time or the other over the years heard something about the Model A/AA Ford that you had a hard time beleiving if it were true or not.

              Here is my story...I was told once that before the Ford Runtunda fire of what year I forget, that there were many Ford archives and Ford data that were lost due to the fire.

              One of the items that was lost were all the...

              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...

              The Development of the Ford Flathead V-8 – Photos From The Henry Ford

              August 3, 2013

              Henry Ford’s famous Flathead V-8 had a long gestation period that was filled with much experimentation. A prototype as seen here was one of the final versions after the basic layout had been chosen to debut in the 1932 Ford. If one spends the time really look close and study the photo,...
