Henry Ford was the oldest of his five siblings. When he was twelve his father had died and he had to take up the work on the farm. while on the farm he watched someone DRIVE past him. The machine had a motor they would use on the farm machines and this sparked Henrys love for mechanics.
One day a person came to the farm and showed Henry how the inside of his pocket watch worked. Ever since than he became obsessed with them. He even started fixing his classmates pocket watches behind a textbook during class for money! He eventually moved and started his own pocket watch business.
He eventually went on to create his own automobile business. It was here he made his first reproduction of his car, the Model-T. Eventually he had a son named Henry II. After Henry died his son took up the business and he continued his fathers work. He eventually made cars that would lead to the cars we have today.
