The Model T Ford
Manufactured from October 1, 1908, to May 26, 1927, many regarded the Model T as the first affordable car for average people. The Ford Company utilized mass production techniques to build the car instead of the costly hand crafting car builders had previously used. The economical car had a trememdous impact on America and the world, spurring the demand for better roads, signage and maps. The Model T Changed American culture and along the way, the entire world.
