Henry Ford's Model T left the Detroit factory on this day in 1908. Less than 20 years later, Ford would watch his 15 millionth Model T roll out. The automobile opened travel for the middle-class. Ford said his wish was that a family could enjoy "the blessing of hours of pleasure in God's great open spaces."
