10/1/1908 – Mr. Ford began selling is Model T

 

Model T Ford - Rag Top

 

(they were all convertibles!!!…just saying!!!)

 

Oh.. you’ll like this one.

10/2/1959 – Chevy introduces the Corvair.  Believe it or not I’ve seen some of the sale footage and they treated it like a jeep.  Chevy had drivers drive up  embankment, up and down streams with water over the tires.  This gave Ford a scare but it wasn’t until they could put together the Mustang did they really have an answer.

 

1959 Corviar.

My Brother-In-Law's 1965 Monza...very nice car.

 

Thanks for reading
