The Ford Model T (colloquially known as the Tin Lizzie and also the Flivver) was an automobile produced by Henry Ford's Ford Motor Company from 1908 through 1927.
It was in 1908 that these cars became really popular. This was the first vehicle that most people could actually afford. Suddenly everyone could drive and explore the surrounding countryside or go visit relatives they couldn't see very often. Everyone wanted that experience.
These great vehicles were manufactured from 1908 to 1927 and are still a favorite today with collector's. You can still see these antique cars rolling down the back roads as folks take afternoon drives in their vintage automobiles. They were affectingly gives the nicknames of, Tin Lizzie and Flivver.
1909-1927 FORD MODEL T Shop Service Repair Manual The automobile is the one that put American on Wheels because the car was affordable and easy to drive. Henry Ford also invented the assembly line with this vehicle and paid his workers enough money so they could purchase these themselves, which got the car on the roads quickly. When others saw these driving pass they wanted one too so the market grew rapidly.
At first the cars came in many colors but to save money Henry Ford changed the color to black only. This color was inexpensive and lasted longer than the others. Most agree that Ford's car was the most significant of all cars to change the world.
One time Henry Ford was driving one of his less expensive cars out in the country and one of the tires became flat. He had fun pretending to be an ordinary customer trying to find a spare. Most would not have seen this as an adventure but because he didn't have to fear the inconvenience or the cost it was just a fun outing to him.
Some use this story on how those in charge can never understand the little guy. However while this it true it also is a story about how Henry Ford could enjoy the little things in life and he didn't have to take out his most fancy vehicle on the road but liked to blend in the population.

Model T Fords are great collector's items and are fun to drive around the countryside. Heads always turn when you drive past. The Lizzie and Flivver are other names for this car and they were made from 1908 to 1927.
Henry Ford once famously said that you can have any color of car you want as long as its black. However notice that the car is blue in this photo so there were some painted others colors besides black.
I will try to have a magneto or magento colored Lizzie available when I can find them.
The Flivver shown in this photo was taken in 1952 at a car show in Ohio.
This vehicle is probably still in nice shape today as long as the owners kept it that way and passed it down to others who would appreciate it.
At first I thought this photo above was of Henry Ford but after reading about it I see that is of a fellow waiting in front of the White House hoping to catch the famous car maker.
This reminds me of a story I read about Henry.
One day Henry Ford was driving one of his cars around the countryside. It wasn't one of his more expensive vehicles but the average car you would find working folks driving.
One of his tires became flat and he enjoyed pretending to be an ordinary guy trying to find a spare to fix it. Once it was all fixed he found that he enjoyed the experience immensely.
There wasn't any stress because he didn't have to be anywhere and had plenty of money to fix the problem. He enjoyed trying to blend in the normal population. Of course he was probably too cheery about the problem to successfully blend in.
I like this old fashioned picture of farm life. It reminds me of times when things were not as evil as they are now. The world will keep getting progressively evil until Jesus comes again so don't expect things to get any better.
This scene is from the year 1911 and notice the color of the Model T. I don't know if they ever made red ones but the artist seemed to think so. You can see that a bucket is sitting in front and can guess that the Model T needs some more water.
