If you left your house or apartment today, there's one thing we can predict with relative certainty -- you saw a Ford vehicle on the streets. Probably a lot of them. Maybe you even drove one. Founded in 1903, the Ford Motor Company is just part of the fabric of America, just as Henry Ford, the company's founder, is a towering figure in American history. Some of his political views didn't stand the test of time (to say the least), but others were forward-thinking and progressive, and the Ford Foundation does charitable work to this day.
Let's consider some of Ford's contributions to automotive history. First off, there's the Model T, the automobile that made car ownership a possibility for middle-class Americans for the first time. At one point, Ford was making 1 million of them a year, an astounding number for the time. Decades later came the Mustang, an American icon. Celebrities drove it in New York and Los Angeles; teenagers raced it on dusty rural backroads; Steve McQueen famously tore through San Francisco in one in "Bullitt." Meanwhile, durable Ford trucks have become the bestselling trucks in America, loved by farmers, ranchers and construction workers everywhere.
