America On Wheels

1908 was a year of great significance and historic importance as Henry Ford's Ford Motor Company from Detroit USA produced its first Ford Model T motor car. The car was also known as the Flivver or Tin Lizzie.

This was now the age when motor cars came into popular usage, not only the rich were able to have enjoy the joys and freedoms of motoring, when, as some say, “It put America on Wheels”. There were two main reasons for this change to the American society they were:

1) 1) It was the birth of the assembly line

2) 2) A ready market was also created by Henry Ford paying his workers a wage that was proportional to the cost of the car.
