History of Cars: Henry Ford and the Model T

Henry Ford was born in 1963 on his family’s farm in Michigan, USA. When he was a
young boy, Ford enjoyed playing with machines. Every day after school, he liked to
experiment by mixing parts of different machines to create new ones. In 1896, Ford
constructed his first car and he sold it to a rich man in Michigan. With the money he
got, he started a small car company: the Ford Motor Conpany. He wanted to make cars
for the American family.
In October 1908, the first Model T car was ready. It wasn’t an expensive car, so many
people bought one. Ford was very happy, it was the beginning of the Motor Age. By
1914, a lot of people worked at the Ford Motor Company. Workers could make a
Model T car in 93 minutes. Ford paid his employees 5 dollars a day and he was famous
all over the world for the modern working conditions in his factory.
It was the beginning of one of the biggest car factories in the world.
