Cars are everywhere around us, and it’s hard to imagine that only 100 years ago most people were using horses to travel. Even if the first car appeared almost 130 years ago, it was still a luxurious item that few wealthy aristocrats or businessmen were able to afford – at least prior to World War One… Everything started to change with Henry Ford, who perfected the assembly line in such a way that cars were soon affordable for millions of Americans. Automobiles became a major source of freedom and greatly improved the standard of living and social patterns. People were no longer forced to move and get closer to their working environment. New leisure activities and businesses were created.

This website will focus on some specific cars and companies which shaped the twentieth century and made history in a certain sense..
