On this day in 1896, Henry Ford drove his first Ford through the streets of Detroit. I can only imagine what people thought when they saw it. I wonder what the horses in the city did and thought when they saw it.
My first car after I got my license was a little Nash Rambler that was missing the pedal on the foot feed, so I had to press my foot on the metal bar the foot feed would have been attached to had it been there. My first real car was a Chevy Chevette that my parents got for me when I was in college. Now we drive a Honda van and a Toyota pickup. My father loved to buy and sell cars, and the last car he bought was a Subaru when he was 93. He said it was the nicest car he ever had. I am glad he got a chance to drive it.
What was your first vehicle? Do you have any vehicular prejudices?
