This Car Changed America

A look at Ford's Model T, which debuted 100 years ago

source: Wall Street Journal

福特汽車 Model T 改造了美國


One could start a lively debate among historians about which car is the second most influential in American history. Perhaps the Chevy Corvair, which launched Ralph Nader, the consumer movement and the litigation explosion? Or the Volkswagen Beetle, the official car of the 1960s counter-culture? Or maybe the Toyota Prius, which might lead to cars powered by electricity and fuel cells?
