What It's Like To Drive The First Crappy Car Henry Ford Ever Built

When I was studying art history, some of the works I liked best were the ones never really meant to be seen — rough sketches from artists done in early planning stages of larger works, done to get a rough idea of feel or composition. That’s the context I like to view Henry Ford’s first car — a rough sketch. What… »10/23/15 1:00pm10/23/15 1:00pm
