Home of the Model T

Here at his Highland Park Plant, Henry Ford in 1913 began the mass production of automobiles on a moving assembly line. By 1915 Ford built a million Model T's. In 1925 over 9,0000 were assembled in a single day. Mass production soon moved from here to all phases of American industry and set the pattern of abundance for the 20th Century living.

I thought this was a good reminder of our heritage - during the international automotive show in Detroit.
