Look at this old car restoration
The old cars are really beautiful. I want one!!
And this one:
And this one,. a 1929 Ford Roadster:
1926 Model T:
1914 Model T:
So I gather the model T was a quality product, at a good price. It was a basic car – not so different from today’s cars, all the required traits were there.
The design ethos was ruggedness, it was intended that you could use the car on the farm, driving around off-roads, in mud and dust, Winter snow and Summer heat and get good reliability in rough conditions. But you could also drive it to work in the big smoke too. It was made to work and to last and you could probably afford one, whereas before the Ford production line, a car was so expensive few could afford one.
