  • On This Day in History

    On October 1, 1908, the first production Model T Ford is completed at the company’s Piquette Avenue plant in Detroit. Between 1908 and 1927, Ford would build some 15 million Model T cars. It was the longest production run of any automobile model in history until the Volkswagen Beetle surpassed it in 1972.

      Chicken or the egg?
      by Larry Jenkins
      While perusing some images of old cars in the Model A era, I see there are many that look like our 30-31 Model As. Question:

      What are your thoughts about whether or not all some of the old cars from this period were copies of the Model A, OR, was the Model A a copy on another old car of that same period?

      I seem to recall that Edsel Ford also did the design work on the 30/31s....

      Early Ford History
      by BudP
      Over the weekend I was gifted with a "Model A Handbook" produced by the editors of Hot Rod Magazine in 1963. The first chapter is entitled, "The Model A's Curious Beginning." Here is some interesting information and a picture found in that first chapter.
