This craze over cars was called "The Ford Craze." He started his engineering career when he was 16 when he left home. He worked in a factory cleaning and fixing watches. It wasn't until about 1925 when his car career would insure that Henry Ford would become a person of the decade who was so inspirational. On one day the Model T was rolling off of the line every ten seconds. Although the cars were luxurious, they weren't too expensive. This is why a lot of people liked the Model-T. The Model-T was the base to almost all cars today and without the car, our transprotation today would be different.
