On October 1, 1908, Henry Ford’s Model T went on sale. At that time motorized vehicles had been manufactured for over 20 years; however, they were not affordable or practical for most people. Ford sold his Model T for $850.00. It was higher than most people’s income but was considered affordable. Ford also designed his vehicle to handle different terrains so that it would be more versatile. This helped in expanding the range people could move about the country. A hundred years later, almost everyone has a horseless drawn carriage parked in the driveway.
