The Casual T’s, a Model T Chapter in southeast Michigan, visited Mill Race Village on August 14, 2011. The rain didn’t keep them away.
The Model T is considered the most successful car in automotive history. It transformed the auto industry and American culture. It was designed as an “Everyman” car. Henry Ford introduced the assembly line which allowed them to be produced in higher volumes at lower cost. The Model T sold millions of vehicles and put ownership within reach for most Americans for the first time.
