Close look 1910s 20hp Ford Model T, its ignition wheels and light systems. Price $850, F.O.B., Detroit, Mich. (1908) - Sunnyvale CA centennial event http://www.thehenryford.com/exhibits/showroom/1908/model.t.html The early Model Ts actually did come in a variety of colors, but beginning in 1914 and for the next eleven years, the Model T would be sold in only one color: black. The main reason for this was the black enamel used dried more quickly than other paints and therefore sped up production. Consumers were not offered a choice of colors again until 1926, due in part to slumping sales. It has never been proven that Henry Ford ever said, "You can paint it any color...," but the phrase has survived for 3/4 of a century and does indicate something about America's beloved Model T: its "steadfastness," its enduring and endearing "sameness." The first production Model T Ford was assembled at the Piquette Avenue Plant in Detroit on October 1, 1908. Over the next 19 years, Ford would build 15,000,000 automobiles with the Model "T" engine, the longest run of any single model apart from the Volkswagen Beetle. From 1908-1927, the Model T would endure with little change in its design. Henry Ford had succeeded in his quest to build a car for the masses.

The year is 1910, over one hundred years ago. What a difference a century makes! Here are some U. S. statistics for the Year 1910: The average life expectancy for men was 47 years. Fuel for this car was sold in drug stores only. Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub. Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone. There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads. The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph. The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower ! The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour. The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year. A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian Between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year. More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME. Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION! Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as 'substandard.' Sugar cost four cents a pound. Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen. Coffee was fifteen cents a pound. Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores.

Legend of Buick - Part 1 (1998)
Here's a great video produced in 1998 by General Motors Communications Support Group for Buick Communications. Written and directed by author/biographer Lawrence R. Gustin (one of the very few writers active today who extensively interviewed people close to the founder of General Motors, William Durant, and who also has a very rich background in researching and presenting Buick history), this video presents a detailed walk through the history of Buick from its early roots with David Dunbar Buick, all the way through to the late 90s. Narrated by Bill Harris, you'll enjoy a wide collection of Buick memorabilia including photos, newspaper articles, and film clips. (Video is presented in two parts.)

1911 Delaunay Belleville HB4
1911 Delaunay Belleville HB4. Chassis number: 3783 Registration number KS594 Just one hundred of these magnificent cars were built during the years 1911 to 1912 & only three are known to survive. This particular model in number 10 out of the first batch of 25 produced. The other known chassis are 3953 and 4302. This particular model was rescued from years of inactivity in a Dutch Museum. This car has over the last 7 years undergone a huge restoration to bring it to the condition we find it in today. The coachwork is a direct copy of that found on an HB6 model & is very Edwardian in appearance with its high back & rear pram hood. The burgundy paint is in splendid condition & looks ravishing offset by the wonderful brass & copper-work. All seating surfaces are in leather & in "as new" condition. An original Z profile windscreen comes with the car but my opinion is that to fit it would be sacrilege & against everything such a car is about. The engine has had a major overhaul including stripping the valves, honing the bores, new pistons, work to the con rods, new little end bushes, big ends scraped & checked, new Gudgeon pins, etc etc. At the same time a classic oil pump was fitted raising the oil pressure from the factory spec of 5PSI up to around 20 PSI making for excellent lubrication. An electric starter is fitted for those lacking the moral fiber to start the car on the handle as its makers intended. As a result of the above work the engine is in tip top order starting readily & pulling strongly in all four gears through the excellent gear box. Reverse incidentally is found by going into first & then further forwards until reverse is found. Delage used a similar arrangement. New king pins have also been fitted making for reasonably direct steering. Driving the car is pleasure in itself & very akin to an early Silver Ghost. The car wafts one down the road in silence with effortless torque from the 4.0 litre four cylinder engine; so smooth is the engine that you would be forgiven for mistaking it as a six. The view over the circular bonnet is spectacular with brass fixtures & fittings festooned upon the front wherever one looks. The front BRC acetylene lamps alone are works of art & would sell for at least £8000 for the pair; these are augmented by a pair of brass Lucas 700 series lamps. A brass snail type Parp Parp horn is fitted to the bulkhead to satisfy those with the inherent tendencies of Mr Toad. It is difficult to convey what a wonderful driving experience this car gives as it is hard to describe in words the sensation of power & unruffled motive force accorded by the engine. Detachable patented (1907) Dunlop wheels are fitted to the 4 corners, mounted on artillery style spokes. Braking to the rear wheels only is "adequate" particularly when used in conjunction with the hand brake. Suspension is excellent giving a compliant ride. To quote from the 1912 Road test carried out by "The Motor": "The springing of the chassis is very good indeed & although we ourselves did not ride in the back, some highly critical passengers who did described the car as being most comfortable." The car may be viewed by prior appointment in Kent.
