  1. 6:51 … I beg to differ – the "dawn" was the development of an improved, more efficient steam engine built by Watt and his associates. It freed manufacturers to build plants almost anywhere….Ford's giant scale manufacturing methods were the nail in the coffin…. Skilled Craftsmen became "boutique" operators.

  2. The arms manufacturers had perfected interchangeable parts and even rotating workers to different workstations at allotted times. Ford brought these concepts to the manufacture of automobiles. Fords real contribution was moving the assembly to stationary workers. He also wrung cost out of the product and passed it on to the consumer as volume increased creating a virtuous cycle. That virtuous cycle is used by most of the worlds billionaires to get where they are.

  3. Model T was built at a time when the road conditions were horrible, so it had to have excellent suspension and ground clearance. It just looks old, but it is built like a tank.

  4. Bruuuuh, all Ford did was put known techniques together to get a cheap production line like we know today. No, it's not that great, he (and the whole of america) can fuck off

  5. 2:18 you sure messed that up. More than 200 automobile manufacturers went out of business—because of the Great Depression and bad business decisions, not because of the assembly line.

  6. Amazing how technology has advanced since Cugnot. The vids from that time were so low res and only black and white. Reminds me of when I was young.
