A race car! That's right "The race that changed the world" involved Henry Ford in 1901. His car (built by him) had a 2cyl engine that was 538 cubic inches. Had 26 horsepower and topped out at 72 mph. Wich was 6 mph faster than the speed record at the time. Check it out.

I keep reading about Ford Racing 110th Birthday...

Ford Racing | Facebook


I have run across some really old Fords this year, and a replica of the first.. thought I'd share.. The first car was in a museum in Texas, the next cars were in Nebraska, and the last one in Tennessee...

The first three pictures are from The Panhandle Plains Historical Museum... in Amarillo, TX...

The next 7 pictures were from Pioneer Village, in Minden, Nebraska.

The last couple pictures are from the Lane Motor Museum- Nashville, TN.
